Baskets are in the forefront of my mind these days, so today let’s talk about collecting picnic baskets. If you follow me, you know I have a thing for picnic baskets. In fact I have a bit of a collection or obsession. I’m not sure which. What about you, do you collect them too?
These two shabby white baskets have served me well. At one time or another they have been in almost every room in my house.
The green and white Redmon picnic basket was a recent thrifting find that I shared with you in TTT Week 40- Vintage Finds.
This adorable metal picnic basket was an ETSY find a few months ago.
I love that this one looks like a little suitcase.
I didn’t buy this pretty basket at the Country Living Fair but it did inspire me.
Jo at Anne’s Attic Design recently posted about Refurbishing A Vintage Basket to use in her kitchen. Isn’t it the most adorable thing? Now I’m even more inspired to make an altered picnic basket.
This Redmon is the first of my picnic basket collection.
Even though I already had a green Hawkeye picnic basket I scooped this one up for the booth. It sold rather quickly.
This vintage picnic basket is one of my favorites!
This metal picnic basket isn’t vintage but I couldn’t resist it. It came from World Market last year. They still have it and it is on sale for $12.59 here. If you want it be quick, because I don’t know how long the sale lasts. (not a sponsored post)
My husband and I had a picnic basket like this one that we took to outside concerts when we were younger.
This personalized basket is a great candidate for making an altered picnic basket like the one I saw at the Country Living Fair.
