I'm so glad you returned for more of the basket tour.
Baskets make wonderful containers. They transform the mundane storage into whimsical portals that are easily hoisted into our arms to be taken on a car trip, out to the garden, or merely from room to room. They are great for 'Quick!-company's-coming' pick-ups and make a room look dressed up no matter the condition of the objects within.
This sassy little basket in in my younger girls' bedroom. It plays, sings, dances, and skips w/ recital costumes once new, now old, forever young.
A sunflower basket which use to hold Chelsea's sewing supplies for girl's club, now holds Annie's various toys. Not sure how that happened. Not sure when that happened. It's still an adorable basket. I vote we resupply it w/ sewing goods.
Here is a darling little basket that Kayleigh bought Chelsea a couple birthdays ago when Chelsea was on a crocheting kick. Her nanny taught her a little basic crocheting then it sat under the window seat...untouched, unused. Not sure when it happened. Not sure how it happened. But now it houses Chelsea secret stash of notes, candy, special writing pen, and whatever else she treasures.
Our Catechesis of the Good Shepherd supplies are stored in this wonderful large basket w/ muslin liner.
Our Montessori/CGS basket w/ various particulars to enhance, encourage, enrich, and enforce the child's understanding and appreciation of the Scriptures and the teachings of the saints.
