Birthday Basket

My husband gave me this cool handmade basket for my birthday last week.   I may or may not have given him a few hints....

I really like that it was purchased from a local crafter at our farmer's market. Plus it's really useful and looks great too!

The jars of home-canned tomatoes were not included in the gift. But don't they look great all lined up in there? I don't recommend lifting it with those jars in there, though. Just sayin'.

oh happy belated birthday to you!
lovely basket, I think you will use and be thankful for this basket for years to come too. It looks like a very useful shape and so pretty.

Happy belated Birthday!!! =) I hope your day was wonderful!

And I am a big fan of baskets ~ that one is gorgeous! I collect baskets, so I have them to give as gifts, use for picnics, or store things around the house.

Blessings to you,
Katie

Happy (belated) birthday, Mary Ann! Love that basket. I'm a huge fan of baskets, but mine are usually not very neat and organized.
