AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

Humble wash basket
May you enjoy empty days
And feel beautiful

Since I am a Laundry Goddess this speaks to me :) So creative to think of a clothes basket for the theme.

I don't think I've ever seen a wash basket in that state!

Very clever, Gemma and delightfully so ... I can imagine the laundry basket appreciating your dedication to "her" - and saying It's about time, someone notices me! :)

Here is my Day 21.
