My favourite of all time basket is an old picnic basket that I have had for years. It holds so many memories of picnics long gone and of the family travelling Europe. Nowadays it holds precious cargo, my yarn cones. I look at it often and conjure up bygone days.
My second basket is another old picnic basket, that has never seen a picnic since I have had it. I use it for storage. It is currently in the craft room been used to store fabric. It doesn't hold the same memories but I love the leather straps and the ease that it opens and shuts.
A Basket that is lined is my number three choice, that again is used for storage, I store fabric that is going to be used in current projects to save me keep getting up and down. It is the perfect shape and reminds me of one that I had similar when I was a young girl, taking my cooking ingredients to school. It also had a plastic cover in bright red. Some lovely memories.
I have a beautiful sewing basket that my daughter bought me one Christmas that I love, it takes pride of place in my craft room and is used on a daily basis.
Finally, basket number five is a basket that I keep at the bottom of the stairs a habit I fell into when my girls were small. Anything that needed to be taken upstairs was thrown into the basket and then I would empty it out on a daily basis. These days it usually my things that are thrown into it and it is emptied out weekly.
My five on Friday, five things that I have enjoyed sharing with you. I am once again joining Amy over at Love Made My Home for the weekly get together. Pop over and enjoy the weekly meme.
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend. I am heading up to my daughters over the weekend to help out with the girls next week, so I will catch up with everyone on my return.
See you soon.
