I have slowed down my treasure hunting of late, but sometimes I come across some finds that I just can't say no to.
I have a thing for old wicker baskets and I recently have added to my collection.
This lovely little beauty I found at a market along with the book. Just perfect for my bits and bobs.
At the same market just as I was leaving I saw this vintage babe hiding in a corner.
I had never seen such a large basket like this before. The lady who was selling it said it belonged to her mother, so I'm guessing it's from the 1950's or maybe even earlier.
It has three sections, the top two baskets are removable and these were full of vintage sewing items.
I now keep my embroidery and tapestry threads in it.
I seem to be collecting a lot of vintage sewing things of late. We are still sorting out my purchase of vintage tins full of old buttons I found at a garage sale last month but that's another story.
