I was on my way back from getting my flu shot this morning when I drove past a new shop with stuff outside (I thought it was an consignment shop--it's an antique store) and I saw something that caught my eye so I stopped.
I had recently seen that someone used an antique metal laundry basket to hold their scraps and I thought that was a great idea. Looked on Amazon and it was pretty pricey.
So I saw one at this little antique shop. I didn't buy it but I found something else adorable and much more affordable. I'm guessing it was a bread basket in a former life (pain means bread in French)...note my toile window seat cover! I do have a bias towards things French for sure.
I thought it'd be perfect to hold my scraps... so I quickly dumped my previous tupperware container's contents, thinking I'd have plenty of room leftover...
WRONG... Filled it right up, but now I can SEE what's inside. I'm really excited about this...
Don't want to mislead you into thinking this is my only pile of scraps... NO... it's the one by my cutting mat. I have two others overflowing near my sewing machine... Oh and another basket on the floor. So many scraps... so little time!!
OH I love it...perfect!!!ReplyDelete
Visible scraps are good. They will get used faster when you see them.ReplyDelete
Love this basket!ReplyDelete
Ah, right up my alley! Pretty things that serve a purpose. Love it, Randy!ReplyDelete
Great wire basket find!ReplyDelete
Love the basket! Now to tame down the scraps!ReplyDelete
I wouldn't have thought of the round metal basket to be used for scraps but it is so attractive with all the fabrics in it. Good choice.ReplyDelete
Just a lovely find--a bread basket full of goodies..how wonderful hugs, JulieroseReplyDelete
What a great idea! Where is the antique shop? I am always interested in poking around, and I live near you.ReplyDelete
That antique laundry basket had me running to Amazon too, and it was too pricey for me as well. You found a great substitute.ReplyDelete
scrap chic for sure...ReplyDelete
A great find indeed! And it is oh so colorful now with all those scraps!ReplyDelete
Cute! My scraps are taking over.ReplyDelete
