Just Think of all the Possibilities

I love it when I get really great things to play with and to decorate with.  That is definitely my favorite kind of gift.  My daughter knows me all too well.  She gave me the fabulous flavored olive oils and had them all displayed so beautifully in this wonderful wire basket.  Of course I tore it all apart so I could see it all and didn't get a pic., but take my word for it, it was really pretty.

Can't you just imagine how many wonderful displays I can make in this great basket.


 I love the size and the handle is just perfect.


She had this all filled with the most wonderful oils, chocolate truffle candies and these wonderful tea towels.  Don't you just love them.







 Now I would love to live her and have the lifestyle that goes with it. lol  Well I guess we all would.

  2. Great basket, Marty! I'm sure you'll come up with lots of ways to use it for your tabletops! : ) I have a closet of things here to go through and one of the things is a wire basket. Except it's a hideous green so I'll have to paint it! I think it originally came with gardening related things in it.

  19. The wire basket is great! I know you will come up with some wonderful displays. Do you ever go to the Olive Mill in Queen Creek? It's a new discovery for me. The prices are high, but the olive oils are so rich, I usually use them to top off my regular olive oil.

    Happy New Year!
