Lost Sock Basket for the Laundry Room

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

Lost Sock Basket

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

I hand-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.

It's 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.
