Easter Baskets

With all this recent talk of eggs, it only does make sense that we explore some vessels in which to collect them. Hmmmm... what to use. Oh, a basket of course.

Let's begin with these lovely moss lined, birch bark baskets. Doesn't a hushed birch forest evoke a lovely image of spring? Find these pretty baskets in the shop of NHWoodscreations.

In a shift from the traditional, try a sturdy and re-usable fabric basket. This gorgeous specimen is made from recycled cotton and natural linen. It comes from the Helsinki shop of tuuni.

Simply stunning gorgeous coiled fabric baskets/bowls. This set of two has been crafted by PiecefulDesigns from blue and cream batik fabric.

And finally, how about a vintage french-style egg basket. I love this!! I found this in the vintage shop inwiththeold.

Now, with all these wonderful ways to carry those eggs about, I expect no slippery egg messes. Happy egg-hunting.
