I just LOVE baskets. In fact, I have banned myself from basket stores, plus stores that sell wooden boxes, plus art supply stores, plus office supply stores, plus “fru-fru” stores…..

I think these are absolutely gorgeous.

I absolutely drool over baskets. I have all kind of excuses at the ready for why I ‘need’ a basket I find. I’m the same way about wooden boxes – new, old…

My husband has learned to help me steer clear of anywhere boxes and baskets are sold.  He does point them out at yard sales, though, and for that I’m truly grateful. :0)

I love the creativity I see from basket makers. It seems that there are endless things one can do to make each one different. For example, look closely at the picture below. I’ve never seen the ruffled edges or rings, or braided rims of these. I think they are stunning.

I love baskets and wooden boxes of all kinds. I’ve had to limit myself to simply looking at them – and drooling – staying away from anyplace where I actually might GET one, since I’ve officially declared myself a maniac about these. I can justify ANY number of boxes and baskets, finding endless uses for them. My husband has indulged my love for both, but we DO have to be able to walk through our home… The one above is a bread basket. Can’t you just picture a gorgeous loaf of French bread in this?

Confessions of a basket freak – I have to avoid places that sell baskets anymore. I can figure out how to use ANY basket, and almost drool when I see one. I have to talk sternly to myself (I know, it shows I’m unhinged) in order to NOT buy it. Thankfully, many are way out of my price range…

My mouth waters when I see baskets of all shapes and sizes. I have a lot of baskets (my husband would say we’re AWASH in them, but there is ALWAYS room for another basket…

Baskets and wooden boxes are my thing. In fact, they’re so MUCH my thing I’ve had to stop going anywhere where either are featured – or at least only when it’s my birthday or something similar.

I can figure out a need for either at the drop of a hat. I would be a wonderful person for basket or box makers to hire to brainstorm about how their products could be used and enjoyed.  My list is unending….

Here are the latest I’ve found and drooled over on the net. :0)
