This is the basket I bought for 5 bucks yesterday. My crafts are spilling over so I needed another portable, stackable storage unit. I really like this one. In fact, it's the reason I got out and walked into this neat shop that's just down the road from me. I didn't even realize it was there until I was getting fuel yesterday and there it was. They had lots of cute things...shabby chic, vintage, antique, country..you name it. I was good and left only with this basket.Photobucket - Video and Image HostingJust for fun, I'm including this photo. I've wanted a picture for a bit but it's so dark in there. Tim bought a little headlight (for reading when camping, etc) and it was so bright that we experimented with it as a flash. LOL It didn't quite work but at least you can see my new arrangement at the top of the entertainment center. That's the wreath I made a while back but with new ribbon that matches the hearts on the cushions. (remember?). The candle is a yard sale find. I trimmed it with both the curtain fabric and the heart fabric. The three candlesticks have been there for ages.


I sure hope I don't lose this post. It won't let me save it, copy and paste into Word or anything. I don't want to hit "Post entry" because it's scary, so I just keep typing. lol Ok, here goes.......

Very lovely arrangement of pretty things Lisa. And yey for the basket, you were very self-controlled to come out of the shop with only the basket! :o)
