Tuesday Display Chain...Baskets/Easter Baskets

Here are a few of my baskets for Misi's 1890 Gable House Musings Basket Chain.......
Maybe not the traditional Easter baskets but they work...I do love to collect baskets and these are only a few of them....

Baskets on an old chippy bench (yard sale find $7.00 a couple of years ago). Picnic basket on the left~from GW $1.99....see the bunny peeking out of the teapot basket? Can't see the spout too well....A prairie doll among sweet annie and mugwort (forgot to add Tansy to that basket). Look at the sleeping bunny in the small basket...cute huh? Can you tell that these Easter prims are part of my giveaway? I'll enjoy them until the drawing...hehe.

Old cookie cutters (one is a bunny) & homespun eggs:

Annie & Andy sitting in a large olde basket with olde wooden bobbins, a sunflower and a heart sitting atop one of my crocks: (both dollies made by Jenn Martino-West).

A basket with unfinished paper mache eggs:

A garden berry basket with some prims sitting atop another crock: I cut the black mammy's head off in the pic...:(

Peg basket with sweet annie and mugwort~yes I'm getting rid of that shelf this spring/summer...and the white molding...not my idea...was here when we moved in....I need ideas for a new facade so any help would be appreciated!

A cool basket that I found years ago at the AppleUmpkin Festival in Wyoming, NY. Filled with blackeyed susans, prim sunflowers (facing rear for a particular reason...you'll find out soon....) and blue coneflowers accented with my grungy flag on a stick. (the flag is actually a dishtowel...I sold a ton of these this past summer at my booth).

An olde picnic basket with an olde wooden bobbin, wood bowl and a not so prim Bunny (But I love her anyway)! See the prim german luxe tree and the prim iron bike?...I need to put fabric back on the base of that tree...ooops.
And now you have seen some of my prim baskets~n~gatherings...Head on over to Misi's blog to see more!
