White Wednesday Baskets ~

I have several old *white* baskets and I thought I would
share a couple of them today.
{I also took advantage of the beautiful sunshine}

these *white* tulips came from my son's wedding in 2003
love this *chippy white* funeral basket.
It has a large rounded handle and I purchased
it when an antique store was going out of
business for around $5.00 or less.
I am not a fan of very many fake flowers,
but I do love these and I had to sneak in some
green for St. Patty's day ~
I found this *creamy white* basket at the fair foundation
garage sale that I attended a few weeks ago.
don't you just love the pink ribbon... and the wonderful old millinery.
it is quite large and I only paid $3.00 for it.
*score*

Have a beautiful day and be sure and visit
Kathleen at Faded Charm for more WW posts.

Thank you for sharing your beautiful basket. I, like you, am not real crazy about having fake flowers around. But, I do have one arrangement that I made that I really like. But, yours is beautiful and then for it to be made of flowers from a special occasion makes it all the more special. Thank you for sharing.

Oh my this basket is just lovely Sandi!! I have missed several of your posts for some reason- wondering if my google reader thing is working?

The button is gorgeous too. They made such wonderful things back then- details just seem to not be important in our fast lane living we live these days-
