I was perusing Etsy the other day when I came across this fantastic basket on fellow blogger/friend Donna's (from Distressed Donna Down Home) Etsy shop.
I was instantly smitten, and decided to treat myself to it for my birthday (not that I ever need a reason-ha!) which is on Monday.
This afternoon, when I got home after a busy day, a package was waiting for me! (Don't you just love that?)
The inside of the box was filled with tulle...
and the basket was wrapped up so pretty!
She also had another little goody wrapped up for me!
This sweet little tag with fabric 'ribbon' and small clock face...adorable!
I've always loved these fishing creel baskets, but surprisingly have never owned one!
This one is very shabby, which adds to its character, but I love how Donna lightly whitewashed it, then lovingly 'repaired' parts of it with bits of ticking, a fabric flower, some buttons, etc.!
That makes it so unique and special!
I've been playing around with where to put it.
Do I want it hanging on my vintage lockers in the sunroom?
Or sitting on a barn wood table?
Perhaps on a chippy blue stool that I just got?
Wherever it ends up, I'll enjoy my one-of-a-kind birthday treasure!
Have a great night!
