I'm a basket case

I am. What can I say... I love baskets. This just happens to be my picnic basket collection. I know! I'm a mess. But they're not just for decoration. Trust me, they earn their keep. Like I've said before, I'm all about storage. So each and every one of these beauties store something of importance. My goal now is to actually label them so I don't have to open each of them to find what's inside.


One of them contains all my cupcake decorating goods. Another has toys for my granddaughter to play with. One of them is filled with my vintage hankie collection, and another has special cards & letters that I've received over the years. You get the picture.

I don't think I spent more than a dollar or two for each of these either. Which makes it all the more fun.

It is a great idea for beautiful and colorful storage! If you ever decide that you have one or two too many you know where you can bring them. Especially the blue/green ones.
