I enjoyed playing around with the basket today.
I'm not sure what kind of basket this is.
Does anyone know?
It looks like it may have been made to gather flowers.
It doesn't look deep enough for veggies,
but I'm just guessing since I don't grow much of anything.
It's not a picnic basket.
Although, I think I could fill it with paper products
or use as a centerpiece for the serving table.
Mama always made pineapple sandwiches
and fried chicken when we had a picnic
or a church Easter egg hunt.
Sandwiches or a basket of bread sounds yummy
with fried chicken.
Pretty linen always look nice in a basket.
Last Spring I found these pastel plates at the local flea market
for $1 each. They are marked, Taylor-Smith-Taylor
Pebbleford by Gilkes
Made in the USA
and numbered by color 7-56 PINK.
They make me think of Easter eggs,
pretty Easter dresses,
and soft baby blankets.
My niece said to add the dried pink roses.
(She likes to move things around too.)
I prefer the white hydrangeas.
We had the same Easter basket every year.
wanted in the basket
and the clerk would put it together
What fills your baskets?
