On Friday this week, I will take part in a Shriner's Golf Tournament at the Perth on the Tay Golf Course in Perth, Ontario. The Perth Golf Course is the oldest public golf course in Ontario. The Shriners operate a children's hospital in Montreal, and the fund-raising tournament is to raise funds for that hospital. My contribution, in addition to what is likely to be several balls to the water hazards, is to donate the three baskets shown here to the Silent Auction.
The large market basket above is made in the Appalachian style of market-basket making, and is in a light and dark brown checker pattern.
The rib basket is also in the Appalachian style of basket making. The grapevine hoops and handle are homegrown in my garden as are the white willow ribs.
The large lidded storage container is the third donated item. It features tamarack bark with the outer bark exposed on the outside of the basket on rows #1 and #3, with the inner bark exposed on row #2.
