Happy Friday friends! It has been a whirlwind of activity here! Summer is going by so fast and my boys go back in less than 2 weeks, yikes!!! I have not even gone school shopping yet, I am in serious denial. The lazy days of summer have just taken me away and I have been trying to be present for each & every moment with my family. I am sure you are all feeling the same. There is just something so magical about summer, isn’t there?!
If you follow me, then you know I have a little crush on baskets. Who wouldn’t, there are practical & pretty. You can find them in just about any patina these days, old or new, baskets are a storage essential in my book. With 2 boys and lots of toys, books & Legos floating around, they are a life saver! When it’s time to clean up for the day, they are easily stored once again and would never know they are there. People ask me all the time if we use our family room and the answer is, YES!!!
We have baskets for toys, for firewood, for balls, for books, for blankets…., you get my drift.
I try to layer in a few vintage pieces whenever possible. These baskets I bought out on the North Fork of Long Island, where there are lots of little salvage shops.
I am over at Better Homes & Gardens today sharing 10 clever ways to use baskets in your home. If you are a basket lover like me, then this is a must read, click HERE.
Have a beautiful weekend!!
