~~~Decorating With Baskets!!!!~~~

I am a BIG fan of baskets, I have been collecting them for YEARS!!! I do not have all of them now as some got purged with the move. But I do have enough to use right now so I thought I would show you where and how I am using baskets! I showed you that I finally got this beautiful hutch that Joe MADE, here in the breakfast room. It has baskets on it and around it!
 The lamp has a rattan shade too. And a small bee skep sits on top.
 My faux demijohns seem like baskets to me. Love their texture. The basket on the bottom can be used as a tray too.
 This is a Large Japanese fishing basket, that I have had for years and LOVE!!! I have tall pieces of bamboo in it.
 This basket/tray hangs on the side of the cabinets for easy access.
 In the master bedroom I have an elephant sitting on a small trunk basket.
 Next to my dresser I have a basket with handles and a basket/vase on top of it. (My dust buster hides behind them:)
 I painted this rickshaw black and just placed some greens in it, on Joe's nightstand.
 Upstairs in the guest room I have another demijohn and the large basket is to put the throw pillows in at night.
 On the dresser I have a large fan.

 Over the bed is a large tobacco basket flanked by 2 wall pockets that I filled. The lamps are bamboo with wicker shades. Behind the lamps are 2 wicker large chargers.
 In the bonus room I have this pedestal basket that holds a collection of feather balls, seed balls, antlers, a turtle shell and a pillar candle. It sits on the game table.
 Over the table is this wicker mirror.
 I forget where I found this mirror, I have had it a long time too!
 Over the doorway, I hung a basket in the middle with a decorated gourd in it and that is flanked by 2 masks from Africa.
 This is a VERY old basket and I placed an african figure in it. Below it is a small broom. I had a collection of small brooms like this, I think some of them went to GW.
 Here we have a rattan lamp and a basket with a small iron monkey hanging in it.
 There is no way to get a good shot of this area so I apologize for the glare. 2 large baskets flank this piece.
 Beside the sofabed are 2 matching palm tree lamps with wicker shades. They came with white shades but I switched them out.
 This is an African basket also, made from paper!!!!
 I love this one too!

 The coffee table is made with wood and rattan and another African basket sits on it.
 I love the beaded detail.

 Love this frame too, this is me and my little sister MANY years ago:)
 I have several coconut shells too and love the texture of them as well. I am sure I may have missed some things but this was getting too long. Thanks so much for your visit. We are bracing for another winter storm but I am THINKING SPRING!!!!!
