Tuesday's Display Chain ~ Baskets..

Click the photos to enlarge !

I am joining in Misi's display chain Tuesday and the theme is baskets. To find other display chain posts, click on Misi's blog :

A few of my baskets.. Above is a photo of flax in an old basket found in an antique store.. an egg rests in the basket.

Below are some faux daffodils found for 50 per cent off in a make do type basket I found the other day in a prim store in the Narrow's Creek Bed and Breakfast here in town.

I made an Easter liner for the Longaberger Halloween basket shown below.. Wish I had more of that fabric !

Below is a child's Easter basket I found somewhere for fifty cents years ago. It reminds me of a surprise that a child would receive on Easter Sunday at Sunday school.

Below is a basket tree I found near Dresden, Ohio that I filled with, of course, American made from Ohio, Longaberger baskets. I made some of the liners in the baskets.

I also made the big teddy bear back in the 90's and the star quilt on the chair.

On the old stool (( from the Walpole Woodworkers in Walpole, Mass found in Connecticut )) is an antique egg basket filled with faux eggs. The egg basket was found in Summerville , Ga for 50 cents years ago years ago. Oh, those were the days !

I won the top picnic basket at a Longaberger bingo.

Shown on the bottom shelf on the wall, the little woven grass basket was made by a lady on a corner in Charleston , S C. back in the 90's.

The pineapple that is hanging from the shelf was a gift from a friend.

Below is one of my favorite Longaberger baskets. Tucked inside is a matching pie plate.

The sun is shining here with lots of blue blue sky and the red red robins are bob bob bobbing along in the yard ... Spring ?

May you have a Terrific Tuesday !

Spring Flowers !

The flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of the birds is come, and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land ~ Song of Solomon 2:12

What an appropriate springtime Bible verse !

As I was shopping in the grocery store the other day, I spied a little pot of yellow tulips and they had to come home with me ! I would have loved to have all the spring flowers they had on display.

May you have an enjoyable Sunday !

Taking a few moments to join in the fun of the display chain Tuesday from Misi's blog. Click the link below for Misi's blog.

The above photo is on my dining room table. I just love it lit up at night !

Below are a couple photos of my newest creations and I thought they fit into the floral theme..

Since I have been working on those two bunnies, I haven't had a chance to really decorate yet for spring !

May you all have a pre spring sunny day !
