~Basket Case!

" please...mommy dearest,
I think you have more than enough
picnic baskets for now~ really! "
.
That's Nia, one of my pugs busy sniffing at my Picnic Basket collection...
I have more than enough don't you think?
I really need to quit being a hoarder and stop buying them!!!
Let's just blame it on my frequent trips to the flea market.
Anywayyy...
Every summer, I would take them out from the storage & have them cleaned...
which I plan to do very soon! I'd use brush, water + vinegar solution(NO chemicals!) & air them dry.
errr...too bad they don't fit inside my dishwasher!
Really hope to use them more often for lovely summer picnics this year ~yesss...
" Is it Friday yet ??? "
~XOXO*

You've got a grand assortment of picnic baskets to motivate you to pack a lunch, a blanket and a bottle of wine and enjoy several summer afternoons.

Why not see if you can utilize every one of your baskets before winter forces you to pack them away again?

I'd love to see a blog of each picnic. Hint, hint.

You clean them? Good for you! Baskets are just too handy and cute not to buy. It's such a little girl thing to buy baskets. I imagine myself picking flowers and berries and stuffing them in these cute baskets.

Yes, it's Friday. Every day is Friday. Okay, maybe not. But at least it's not Monday.

That's not too many baskets, they should be like outfits anyway you don't want a new boy to see you with the same one twice ;).

Savvy Gal said...
