Heads Up...It's a Basket Bonanza!

My daughter and I did a little thrift shop hopping yesterday and hit the basket jackpot!


The first great find was this wicker head...perfect to model hats and scarves for my blog. After I picked it up, I turned around to discover an overflowing baby playpen of baskets...for $1 each! The wicker head was only $1 too! We went through all of the baskets, making a pile of all the ones we liked, then narrowed it down to seven. There were so many nice baskets that it would have been easy to buy more but I try to limit myself to avoid excess "stuff" in our home. We have plans for every single one of these.

Very fun. Which thrift store? I forgot to tell you that I almost bought some very cute brown houndstooth fabric that day I went thrifting. I put it back because I didn't need it. Two days later a friend of mine bought it to make curtains for her new grandsons nursery. ;-) I hadn't even told her about it. So funny. Yeah thrifting!

Score! I love the baskets (have a rather large stash of them myself...) but the wicker head is the BEST!

It is impossible to have too many baskets! Good Shopping you two! (And I love the head!)
