I missed it

My Monday Marketplace, that is. I was under the weather yesterday and simply could not get it together. There are so many wonderful artisans to feature that I did not want to miss showcasing one of these great artist this week. So for today, Tuesday, my Monday Marketplace feature is Rose of Baskets by Rose. Rose is a talented artisan and member of the Esty Team Old Farmhouse Gathering. I am sharing with you an interview Rose did for the OFG team. I'm also showcasing some of her beautiful work. Please take notice of the places you can find Rose's beautiful work at the end of this interview.
