I have a basket 'collection'...amongst my many other treasures. I love that I can use them to stash away different items and organize my small cottage. I kept ribbons in this basket for ages and then, one day, I made a decision to place it in my powder room to hold my vanity items. I love it! Such a simple change in the room and it makes a big difference! Plus the lid was the perfect place to display my many silk roses that I love to show off (from Meadow Street). Romantic Simplicity. Viola!
