Dolores Gatz to Susan ButtsThis is what Susan has to say about her new basket:

"... from Delores Gatz, and is a lovely gourd, with 3 dream catchers worked into it on 3 sides. There are beads around each dream catcher. On the inside, Delores has glued a tiny little angel, reading a book, with miniature books lying all around her. She also sent me 2 recipes, one for a breakfast casserole, and one for pumpkin-chocolate chip cookies."
