Come and take a Peek

Let me Show you what I have
stashed in my Picnic Baskets

These old Vintage Picnic Baskets
are perfect for Storage
I have this stack of them in a corner
of my Dining Room 
No one ever sees what's inside!

But Each One Holds Some of my Treasures
Take a Peek!

Vintage Red & Green Handle
Kitchen Gadgets!

And My Never Ending Collection
of Vintage Plastic Favor Baskets

Some of my Vintage Jello Molds
Before they have been Altered!
And a few Dress-me-dolls

And then another great thing for Storage
is Hat Boxes
This Grouping is in my Studio

Each One is Filled with My Studio Sweets!

Two of then hold my Millinery
keeps them from getting smashed!

And then another has my 
Paper Party Cups!
And some Vintage Ice Cream Cups

I guess you all have similar decorative Storage Spots
It's kinda fun to use containers other then
the plastic containers.
But don't get me wrong I have plenty
of those too. I will have to
show you those another time!
I hope you had fun taking a peek!!

LOVE! LOVE! LOVE IT!!!! I don't know what it is, but I LOVE having lots and lots of little trinkets stored away in pretty and clever containers. It's like eye candy upon eye candy!

I replaced most of my tupperware containers for pretty boxes too, it makes such a difference doesn't it? Much more inspiring!

Share some more! Share some more!

I am collecting hat boxes from yard sales to use to 'wrap' Christmas presents in! Check out my May 16th post!

So many treasures tucked so neatly away! I love your picnic baskets. I just bought two last week and have them stacked in my guest room. I haven't stored anything in them (yet).
Have a wonderful weekend.

I like your picnic basket storage system! :-)
I sent you a message on your esty with my contact info for winning one of the shower games. (My server does not seem to work properly with this blog e-mail, so I can't just click on the e-mail icon in your profile and send you a message. It keeps telling me I have a server that does not exist.)

Happy weekend!

Those aren't just picnic baskets and hat boxes- they're treasure chests!

ou have polite friends if they don't know what's inside the picnic baskets. I love hidden treasures. I would bug you till you told me what's inside, then I would paw through them. Just kidding, but I would be SO tempted!
I love your containers!

Hi Diane,
Great use for the picnic baskets. I just found a set of 3 hatboxes at an estate sale that I can't wait to use in my new craft room closet redo. Wishing you a happy Sunday.

I love the picnic baskets and I'm a huge fan of old hatboxes. They are great ways to display the things we love and a fab way to hide all our treasures until they are needed.



Loose Sparrow Arts N Crafts said...

I would just LOVE to meet you. I am home most of the time, and so we could do something at your convenience! It would be so fun to share in person. You could feel free to paw through any of my stuff!

Hi Diane! I love all of the new photos you have added to your sidebar. They let you know in a quick minute the good things you will discover here! Like the treasures inside your baskets! I love this kind of peek! My poor printer is on it's last legs as well. Too funny, I have wondered what type you have because I think your posy images are so amazing! My Cannon printer has lasted 15 years now, and I will definitely replace it with another one. It has been good to me! Again, thanks for this fun post! E
