Handmade Sweetgrass baskets are a staple if you live in the Charleston, SC area.

We found these beautiful baskets, full of spring blooms and greenery, adorning the entries of historic homes while touring in city of Georgetown a few months ago...

Such a beautiful way to welcome guests to your home...

Well, guess what I've been up to?  

I have two baskets,
some silk flowers,

my sweet little helper Ellie-Mae...

Can't wait to show you how they turn out!

Here's the link if you would like to tour these beautiful historic homes

Hope you are having a great week...

  9. Love sweetgrass baskets. I treat myself to a new one every time we visit Charleston.

  10. Hi Cindy,
    have to say I have never heard of sweet grass baskets, but they are charming decorations.
    Love the ones you posted..........can't wait to see how yours come out. That must just
    be a charleston tradition or something...........very cool I must say!

    Hope you have had a good week hon,
    blessings, Nellie

  11. It should be an easy work, since you ahve such a sweet helper! I'm waiting for the result, no doubt it'll be pretty.

  12. I love these Cindy, and I can't wait to see what you do with yours. My sister lived in Charleston for years, and we used to see the basket ladies selling them on Broad Street and along Meeting Street back in the day. I love the shape of the one you found. it is darling!

    I can't put anything on our front door right now. We are having major work done, and it would end up covered in mortar dust. I blogged about it and have just gotten back into town after escaptng for a few days. I will head back out after the weekend. I have to get away when they are making this big of a mess. It will be great when the finish, but until then, YIKES. This is on our residence, and not the St. A house which is where I escape. ;-)



  13. I used to live in Charleston, so I know all about those baskets, but I haven't seen them in the shape you have. Those are so pretty! Visiting via Coastal Charm.

  14. Not heard of sweetgrass baskets before, so I'm anxious to see how your turn out. I'm sure they'll be beautiful.
