Vintage Wire Baskets : Farmhouse Finds and Garden Time

Thanks to Asha of Chico, CA for sharing this picture of how she uses her wire basket!
Summer is here and one of my favorite things are use of old wire baskets. There's nothing like display of fresh lemons, herbs, fresh cut flowers, or fresh eggs in baskets like these. The shabbier the better.  If you have a basket with rust, use it to weed the garden.  Old baskets never die, they just get better with age.

Lemons never looked so lovely, for sale @ The Lazy Peacock

  1. Great blog!! I think I read all the posts, really interesting and also some of my favorite things!


  2. Great baskets! I love the collections you put together.

  3. What you're saying is completely true. I know that everybody must say the same thing, but I just think that you put it in a way that everyone can understand. I'm sure you'll reach so many people with what you've got to say.
