My $1 Wicker Basket....

I hope everyone is having a wonderful week!
The NW wind came through last night and sure has made it feel like fall in Minnesota!

I'm back home and still waiting for Mr. Wild to take my chippy door out of the trailer so I can put it in it's new place...maybe tomorrow....this weekend????

But while we were in Wyoming, one of the yard sales I stopped at had this pretty white basket for $1. 
Just exactly what I had been looking for and there is was in this terribly dirty place yet it's clean and in great shape...I still think that's odd.
Anyway, I picked up a large bag of crochet (this isn't it) that was market $2. 
I didn't look inside until I got back to the "Dirt Ranch" as we jokingly call it.

I'm saving that big surprise for next week!!!!

 I tossed in some of my crochet doilies and a little bit of bling....until I find a place for this pretty basket.

Thursday morning I'm heading out to Junk Bonanza.
I'm going to look....not buy...at least I'm going to try really hard to behave myself! 
I hope to see some of you there....

Update Thursday Sept 15....I went and I had a blast!!!! I bought more cool stuff that I'll post this weekend. The place was packed, even more than last year.  I was pretty good and didn't buy too much, but people were buying and hauling out stuff like crazy!

Thanks for stopping by!!!

That's a great idea to display the crocheted items in your basket. Looks so pretty together.

That basket is so cute and your lace looks perfect in it, I can't wait to see your new bought lace, I hope they are as pretty as these ones.
