Because my last post on containers caused some interest in my picnic baskets, I thought I would show them for VTT, because they are not only fun and inexpensive they are also vintage.
Unfortunately they don’t last more than a season or two if you leave them out where they are in the sun and rain. Under a covered porch they fare a little better.
I don’t think I paid more than 8 dollars for any of them and that was with a tray inside and all the dishes and silverware.
I also use them for pointsettas at Christmas time because they look so nice much more finished than the foil wraps around the pot.
It is often hard to part with a perfectly good basket to leave outside but I just love the look so I sacrifice a couple of them every summer. Now, on to next week’s project…..
