PRETTY BASKETS


Chic and durable, baskets make wonderful catch-alls around the house.  I keep two sturdy baskets in the mudroom for shoes and boots and several in a variety of sizes in the kitchen for fruits and vegetables.  I love a thick loopy seagrass for holding firewood and would be utterly disorganized without my collection of soft sisal baskets around my desk. My basket collection has grown, but I will keep buying--there's always something that could use a little stylish organization.



My favorite basket roundup includes:

You chose so many gorgeous baskets. Trays & baskets are truly what transform mess to a tolerable level. When friends are stopping over..where do you think all that clutter from the kitchen counter goes!! My teen & husband are the worst for scattering bits & bobs about..ugh.

Lovely weekend to you ~
