A Tisket, A Tasket

...I found my little basket! I love this frilly old basket. When I was a little girl the baskets were so pretty. Someone spent a lot of time wrapping ribbon and gathering netting to surprise a little one on Easter morning. I bought two just alike nearly 20 years ago. One for me and one to sell. This one was a floral arrangement basket. I prefer to think it was for a little girl's birth, even though I usually hear them referred to as funeral baskets. I had a white one and a blue one that I sold. Wish I had the white one back. I'm going to join Debra @ Common Ground for Vintage Inspiration Friday. Come look around. Have a beautiful day!


  1. I LOVE your Easter baskets. Very pretty!
    Easter Blessing to you.

  2. Such pretty little baskets Angela. I can see a sweet little plate peeking out of one of those with the old cottage design. How sweet. I hope you have a wonderful Easter. I'm going to e mail you. Diane

  3. The basket with the pink netting skirt is so vintagely awesome! Tiff

  4. Your baskets are darling! Easter blessings to you and yours Angela :)

  6. Both baskets are so pretty, and they just don't make anything these days that can compare!
    Happy Easter!

  7. These are just the sweetest, I too hate thinking of these as "funeral" baskets. These are so precious, love the little birds and chick. The pastel quilt in the background is so sweet and springy! Thanks so much for linking up with VIF!
