A reader noticed an outlet above the front door that is on a ledge wall . . .
and wondered what I used it for.
I had the builder place an outlet on that ledge for placing lighted Christmas decor on that ledge.
However, other than previous Christmas decor the ledge has been empty.
I just never found the right things to place up there that wouldn’t seem lost . . .
as the ceilings in this room are 24 feet high.
Until this weekend . . .
I added large vintage baskets.
I had two of these baskets for a while and they were recently in the attic.
The third one I purchased at an estate sale.
Total costs for these three vintage baskets were $45.00 . . . Yes, $45.00, it’s not a typo!
The large basket in the corner was a purchase from a friend ($30.00) in which I am sure I received
the friend discount!
The rectangular basket was purchased at an antique mall in Tennessee.
A very kind lady was busy setting up her booth when I spotted the basket. When I asked how
much she wanted for the basket as it was yet to be tagged, she replied, “is $10.00 OK?” Why of course!!
The small round basket discovered at an estate sale in a corner with Christmas bows in it, marked $5.00.
Left the bows . . . just took the basket!
I do love the baskets on the ledge. It created one problem though . . .
I am on the hunt for more large baskets!
I do have one other larger basket, my French gathering basket. . .
however, I love it just where it is, next to my French Buffet!
Have a wonderful day, with most of you enjoying a day off from school or work for Presidents’ Day.
I must admit I took advantage of a sale yesterday! . . . No venturing out today as snow is predicted!
And . . .
