Friday Goodwill Find: A Tisket A Tasket

Dear Friends

I hope you had a good week.  This weeks Friday Goodwill Finds are a couple of baskets.  I'm planning a Easter post full of inspiration for you and lots of fun.  I picked these baskets up for less than $2 and love transforming than into a cute nursery rhyme for now.

This rhyme originated in 1869 and is also a children's game that I'm sure some of us remember playing but I really love Ella Fitzgerald's 1938 version of the song.   Love Ella.  Some things I hope and love will never go out of style.  More inspiration for Spring and Easter for under $5.

A tisket a tasket
A green and yellow basket
I sent a letter to my love
And on the way I dropped it,
I dropped it, I dropped it,
Yes, on the way I dropped it
A little boy picked it up
And put it in his pocket.
