my little vintage egg basket ~

Good morning ~

I have had a couple of requests to show my little vintage egg basket that is on top of my new cabinet ~

Mr. Vintage bought this for me one day while driving in his truck ~ he stopped at a yard sale ~ I adore this basket because it is so unique

The basket is wood and it is covered in a very fine fish netting ~

You can put eggs or veggies in this basket and they will not break or bruise and the best part is ~

It folds up for easy storage.  Not that I put it away ~ it's always on display.  It makes me smile ;-)

What unique items make you smile?

Have a wonderful day ~ stay tuned I have a very interesting project on the way ;-)




  1. That it the coolest basket! Love it!

  2. Marianne, I thought I followed your blog but I guess not so now I am.. love the little basket.Have a great day.


  3. How nice that your hubby spotted that gem for you. Happy soon-to-be Easter!

  4. how neat, I have a metal one but a wooden one is so unusual! good job by your husband!

  5. That is so neat! Your husband has a good eye and heart for buying that for you :-)

  6. What an incredible idea. I like the netting and I really like how it folds up.

  7. Oh, that's a keeper! So unique! I love baskets throughout the house.
    Hmmm... I think just the simple things, like tulips in a mason jar are what make me smile.

    Have a happy one, Marianne! I'll be back to see what you've been up to.
