Blogtoberfest Day Twelve: Baskets Galore

Three years ago, we bought the house we live in now.  It is considerably larger than the house we moved from, but it has considerably less storage.  Go figure.  So every room has stacks of stuff and clutter that I don't want to get rid of but doesn't have a place to hide away. 

My mother and sister are coming next week for a visit and this will be the first time they've been to this house.  I'm going crazy trying to find a place to put everything.  I used to sell Longaberger baskets, so I have a lot of them!  In the old house they easily fit on a shelf in the closet.  In this house, they were scattered throughout.  Today I found them a home...on top of a cabinet in the kitchen.  I had to take down the collection of pitchers and find a new home for them, but I'm so happy to have all the baskets together. 

Believe it or not, this isn't all of them.  There are several more that I actually use and there is another stack in my sewing room that I can't get to right now!  Yes, I know I should get rid of some, and I actually have through the years.  But for now, I'm happy to have them in one place!


  1. That's the beauty of baskets - they make lovely arrangements, and they're safe to display in areas where items that could split your skull if they fell on you wouldn't be. They look great there!

  2. The baskets look terrific stored like that. Very artistic.
