Fun Finds…{burlap lined baskets}


Before I begin today’s post, I am elated to be featured on the blog No Minimalist Here for today's Open House Party Thursday. Hop on over to the “party” after reading today’s post. Thanks Sherry for featuring my Parlor Mantle {Summer}.

Now for today’s blog post…

You all know my love of burlap which is totally H-O-T in the decorating world today.


On a recent visit to The Shops at 2011 Magazine (seems as if I go there often-LOL!), I picked up two wire baskets lined in burlap. I love them. I have been wanting burlap lined vintage baskets for a while for the French Shopkeeper’s shelving in my dining room. I have seen many for sale but are often very expensive. I was just too happy to find these two.


I set each on the third shelf of the French Shopkeeper’s shelving unit. One I filled with my antler-handled silverware. The other, I filled with brown New Orleans toile dinner napkins and a wicker vessel. I love to have silverware and napkins easy to access when having a casual dinner party or supper club.



I think they look great!

  1. Love the baskets and the way you have showcased them. Can't wait to see them today! :)

  2. They look great on the shelf and perfect use as well!

  3. Ron, the baskets look great! I'm so jealous of your toile napkins!! Those are awesome! You have displayed your goods beautifully!

  4. This looks great! I love your toile napkins too! You have arranged this unit beautifully! I also loved your featured mantel on Sherry's blog! It is outstanding! Congrats on the feature!

  5. You know how much I love them! What a wonderful display.

  6. You know I love those baskets. You have them displayed beautifully.

  7. Love the baskets! They look fabulous on that pretty piece and I love your antler handled silverware!

  8. The baskets are pretty and very functional with the liners. Great display.

  9. Those look great. I love how you displayed the flatware and's a great look and functional to boot!

  10. Love the wire baskets and burlap. The horn-handled flatware is awesome. I would love to have 10 place settings of that and put it with Spode Woodland. I just love the dark brown and rustic autumn colors in that china pattern. If I win the lottery, that is the first thing that I'm going to buy.

  11. This is a multi-layered post. First, I like your coastal inspired mantel. Those old mantels with two shelves are very striking. I enjoyed your shelves full of goodies and love the burlap lined baskets. I checked out your burlap post too. Love the shower curtain.

  12. It looks like you do some serious entertaining at your house! I also have a love affair with burlap lined baskets but I only have one until I can find some other ones at a decent price. I like your blog..very fun1

    Hugs, Angie

  13. Love your stylish storage look! The baskets look so good on the French storage shelves and I'm loving the antler handled flatware and the way you displayed the napkins in the baskets.
