Lost Sock Basket

When my children were young I used
this now antique basket for their winter mittens...


It was a basket my family used for picnics when 
I was a little girl...



I painted The Three Little Kittens story around 
the handles and across the top many years ago...


Now I use it in my laundry room for lost socks...


Just a treasure of my own, not found at a thrift store, 
garage sale or on the side-of-the road, 
that has become legitimately antiqued over time.

  1. It's lovely! You are so talented and obviously have been for a long time! I'm hoping to do something "crafty" this weekend. I hope you and yours have a wonderful holiday weekend.

  2. I have a basket similar from my wedding. I always think about getting it out to use it for something. Sadly it won't hold all our misplaced socks!

  3. Funny to come across your post about a basket--when I just included one in mine! Bought it from a friend of mine at a yard sale we had together---I keep moving it-and I keep finding CATS in it! Lol! Blessings, Sharon

  4. I can't think of a laundry room out there that couldn't use this! It's a lot better than the system I have in place now- you know, throw them in the bottom of the socks drawer! ;-)
