Look at this awesome old farm basket I got at a rummage sale this week-end! It's really unusual to find something like this in Las Vegas. Okay, I'm playing with you guys...it didn't start out looking like this.
This is how it looked when I found it. Let me tell you; it was a bear getting all the rope off! It was all knotted to the basket. My fingers were starting to turn blue from the dye in the blue rope as I cut it off. If your hobby is tying rope around baskets like this...I apologize for destroying this one!
Once I took all the rope off the handles wouldn't stay up anymore, so I broke them off with a hammer. That part was fun!
I decided to keep the rope on the bottom. It looks kind of cool and I was sick of cutting rope off! If you are wondering about the pillow it's from Victorian Trading Co.
I had to show you these lilies my mom sent us for Easter. They have been blooming like crazy ever since we got them. I just love them! Thanks mom!
I found this pot at Marshalls on clearance for $2.00. Yay! The lilies look great in it.
I got these "thingies" at the rummage sale too. I'm going to have fun displaying them in different rooms in the house. I love little doo dads that I can move room to room as the whim strikes me!
Here's my question for you guys....I got this lamp and shade at Walmart. I really like it, but the shade looks a little big to me. Maybe I'm just not used to it yet. What do you think??
I've kept the plastic on the shade in case I decide to return it. Please let me know what you think. I seem to change my mind every five minutes!
Have a great day everyone!
