When we picked up these vintage egg baskets last weekend, Cody questioned me and what I planned to do with them. He thought they would just sit there going unused and getting in the way. I told him there were lots of things I could do with them and since he challenged me to prove it, I did! Challenge accepted!
There are 2 baskets here (I couldn't pry them apart). One has a handle and one does not. The first thing I did was rolled up some towels for the guest bathroom. The basket holds 4 bath towels perfectly and are in plain sight so guests don't have to look all over for them.
Next up, I filled the basket up with rolls of toilet paper for the guest bathroom. The worst thing ever is running out of toilet paper so this should help solve that problem!
We could use a basket to hold dog toys. They are clearly spoiled!
It could hold extra pillows for the daybed out on the patio. Spring will be here soon and I am sure many naps will be taken out there.
I can use a basket to hold root vegetables in the kitchen. Having them in the basket will let me see if I need to get more and obviously I do!
I could also use it in the kitchen to throw all of my dirty towels and rags in. So many uses for these baskets. One thing I won't be using them for is collecting eggs...I am afraid of chickens so that's not happening! What are some ideas you have for my vintage egg baskets?
Speaking of baskets, I picked up this pretty French laundry basket at Hobby Lobby. It was originally $149.99 and was in the 50% off aisle. Someone mislabeled it at $22.50 so of course I grabbed it as quick as I could. It lives in our bathroom and collects our dirty clothes. I love that I can wheel it across the house to the laundry room so easily. Now if I could just get Cody to put ALL of his dirty clothes in here!
I don't think I ever showed you this adorable wheeled tiered cart thing I bought last fall. I couldn't resist it when I saw it even though I have no idea what I am going to do with it. It may go up camping with us this summer and be put to good use!
I made Creme Brulee for the first time last night as our Valentine's dinner dessert. Oh it is so yummy and now I am going to need to get a kitchen torch so that I can make this all the time!
The dogs got their own Valentine treats too! Homemade peanut butter dog bones. I am thinking that I am going to make all their treats from now on because I like knowing what they are eating and it makes me happy to bake them treats!
Have a wonderful week!
