Nice baskets Blossom! Yay another basket case has joined!!
Love the way baskets can be used for all the season's and look great for any occasion.

Thanks for the new thread Yardqueen, have you got any new baskets?

Emory, TX(Zone 8a)

No, but I found some old one that were packed away when I was clening out a closet that I use to store Chistmas decorations! But alas, there will be no pics as they are boxed up in the closet!

Well, I am still packing up Christmas so heres another....(I might get done with that holiday around the 15th of Jan if my plans go right!) so here just a wee extension then it is done! I think 3 or 4 pics...

cute baskets! LoL tins!! I have a few tins, but mostly old kicker boxes full of junk! Things I've put away that might come in handy one day, but never do !!
There's a thread about 'Flower arrangers toolbox' that includes any 'materials' you might have.

Hi, Terri! And where are you finding spring flowers??? I guess in the stores, huh?

I will have a lot of spring flowers if all my seeds come up! I do have daffodils now, and forsythia. I will have hyacinth in a day or so! I am SOOOO ready for spring! I have quite a few seedlings sprouted already!

london England, United Kingdom

Hi Yardqueen, you guessed right, they are from the florists!!
Well done being so organised with your seed sowing! You probably dont want to cut your daffs or Hyacinths?!! Photo's please, if you get time!

Blossom, that looks like a nice varied collection of baskets, can't wait to see some spring arrangements in those!

(Zone 5a)

You and me both....although I am totally frustrated as I was nto wantign to do baskets just now. I am going to have to stuff all my baskets back in the box and put them on hold....they are not what I want to work on just yet....but here is a pretty blue one to go with your Pank! And I will put the Easterish ones on top and show you those as time will let me.

Back to the hunt for those McCoys. It is really irritating me because I am running out of boxes to look in and terrible thoughts are coming to mind that they may have gone out with some garbage... to which I will scream. But the DH says.. they might be out in the storage closet in his shop.....if they are not there I am just gonna have me a royal heartattack.

I dont know why, but ever since we moved here, I could just never get things sorted out and put in the rooms that they were supposed to go it. We had to pack every thing up in a hurry a few years back when my mum moved in....now she is gone and now we are putting back out stuff. Getting sooo tired of boxes!
Especially those that have no labels on them....grrrr. Now I am redoing those that go into storage so I hopefully will find things better later. What a mess.

Hi Yardqueen!
I heard on the grapevine that you are having a new Grandbaby Hurray!!
Congratulations!!!! Hope all is well with you?
Take care
Terri
















Got any new baskets?????? LoL!

Emory, TX(Zone 8a)

No new baskets... New grandbaby! He was born Oct 9, 7lbs 7 oz, 19 in. long. They named him Jack. (They are partial to old fashioned names) He is the sweetest baby!

All is well with me, except I am tired from helping the new Mom and Dad to adjust. I am turning into the other kind of basket case!

Here is a pic of our sweeetheart!
