A tisket, a tasket, i bought baskets

Which is odd, because i'm not normally a basket person.  Could be argued a basket case, but basket collector, no.


Not normally a basket displayer, either, but that thing looks decorative with the alternating colors and large scale. Could be great as part of a gallery wall or something. 



Loved the interesting shape to this white vase. Though clearly not milkglass, i thought it could still go with that obsession collection.  Does not appear to be of any value, but i quite like it.  Little retro, little ga-roovy.



Another nice sized basket, this one used for corralling my smaller purses and clutches.  Better than just shoved in a closet, they will now be shoved in a basket...shoved in a closet. 


Yay for organizing.  It's the small things, people.

Garage sale or thrift store purchases?

You're not a basket person? I love baskets!

I have too many, but I totally need more! I love that you can kinda move them around the house as you need them for different things.

I'm still on the lookout for a big basket for toys, but I'm super picky about not spending more than $10 and the color has to be right.

What great finds made even more entertaining and interesting with the story you told. Thanks for making me chuckle on this gloomy day :)

It's funny you mentioned baskets today. I was at Target yesterday looking at some of their large, darker colored baskets thinking I want them to help corral the ever growing toy collection. I also thought the color would be nice to break up all the gray in my TV room and provide some more natural tones. I was thinking about it this morning as I tackle the room (again!). Hmmm...

I also corral small bags and such in a basket in my closet. It at least makes it look more organized!

I find that I go in and out of phases with baskets. I really like unusual ones, and that top one is nice with the colors. Love the stamp on the bottom of your white find. Ann

I love baskets for organizing. It really does 'corral' items. Love that little vase! I agree it will go with a milk glass 'collection'!! Hugs, Linda

I am not into baskets either, but I do like yours.

I had baskets like crazy several years ago but sold them all in a garage sale and then gave away the rest like a ding bat. Now I'm back looking for baskets for storage solutions and to add cute appeal. Love how you added your purses to them for organization.

Cute little baskets. They are great for organizing. I have a few for that reason. I have been slacking on my blog visits, and thought I had better check in on you, and see what you are up to. It is always good to visit and old bloggy friend. Have a wonderful day. Karie

Great finds!! I am weird and love to use baskets for organizing/corralling my junk!For some reason, I never thought about getting a basket to store my purses! Good idea! I love that little vase, it's funky and cute!

Hehe, I love that "they will now be shoved in a basket shoved in a closet." Sounds like my life, my closet is such a mess right now.
