Going to Hell in a Handbasket

And here we have the handbaskets, the first in what may or may not be a series. These are false artifacts from the NanoAmericans - the eco migrants who roam the earth after soaring temperatures, rising seawater, and a dwindling water supply led to failed crops, economic collapse, and the realization that if mankind is going to continue at all it will have to be on a much smaller scale (thus the "nano"). NanoAmericans are adept at using foraged materials and refuse from the previous use-it-and-throw-it-away culture. Neither plastic bags nor soda cans are manufactured any more and these materials are considered semi-precious.

  1. This information is invaluable. How can I find out more?

  2. These are the best things ever! My GGMother frequently used the phrase "going to hell in an handbasket" but I almost never hear it these days.

    Made my day!
