Monday Marketplace

I'm a proud member of THE OLD FARMHOUSE GATHERING TEAM ON ETSY... a talented, professional group of artisans who create everything from Primitive to Shabby Chic, with an old fashioned flair!

Each Monday, I will be featuring a different member from this awesome team and introducing you to some of their great products and items.

Today's Monday Market place feature is:
Rose Clawson of ~Baskets By Rose~

Everything Rose makes is made one at a time. She loves working with her hands. The colored reeds in her baskets are dyed by Rose, herself, so each batch turns out a little different. Each being a true work of art.

1. What is the name of your Etsy shop and why did you choose that name?
My shop name is Basketsbyrose. My name is Rose and I weave baskets. To easy!

2. How long have you been on Etsy?
I have been on Etsy a little over one year.

3. What type of items do you offer?
Hand woven baskets, quilts, stitchery, and some other items that I love to make.

4. How long have you been crafting?
I started sewing at age 5, made my wedding dress many many yearsago. In 2008 I made over 150 baskets for my sons wedding.

5. Who or What inspires you?
Everyone inspires me I love to look at the work everyone does.

6. What is your favorite item in your shop and why?
Now it would be the mantel basket or the broken dish quilt with all the colors. Early this year it would be the sunflower baskets, but I’m happy to say that I sold them.

7. Other places where you can be found (Ebay, webstore, blog)

Ahh, Rose is the "Top Cat" in my book. She handmakes those awesome baskets and then she handmakes primitives to go in them. How neat is that? VERY! Thanks for featuring Rose Amy, you're both swell gals:) Hugs~
