Enter into Ponderosa Country

Thank you for your interest in my work

Into your hands, into your heart

If your personal totem has a “voice” ~ invite it to speak through your special basket.

Share the Joy

Basket maker Judy Arledge invites you to share her joy of creating pine needle baskets.

Come along for a walk in the forest ∼ step lightly where the pine needles have fallen, creating a warm blanket for Mother Earth. The fragrance is pure pleasure ∼ especially when we are blessed with a soft rain on our journey.

Respect must be shown for the pathways, worn soft like the bottom of favorite moccasins by the wild creatures of the wood, as they make their way home or to places of refreshing water. It is an honor to be a guest here ∼ and a privilege to share in the bountiful harvest of needles from the Proud Ponderosa.

Be vigilant as we pass through the land of tall pines and creatures of the forest, for blessings abound. Perhaps a new grass or colorful moss will catch our eye ∼ a feather shed in flight, or an unusual seedpod may find its way into our gathering vessel.
