A Tisket, A Tasket, A Green And Yellow Basket

By Sinea Pies

So where do you find a "green and yellow basket" when you need one? You Google it and come up with this amazing cake creation by Brianna.

Green and Yellow Basket Cake

Yes, this really is a cake!

As I said in my Love Baskets! post, I love baskets. Every shape. Every kind. I used to have a great big one for my dog's multiplied marrow bones but it disintegrated with age. (Could have built our own museum exhibit with them--"This is what a cow looked like, kids".) We threw the bones away and started over. 

So, I went on a search, looking for some really great examples of types, uses and styles of baskets. Here's what I found...

Bunny Basket

Wouldn't this make a beautiful centerpiece?
Easter eggs for the holiday.
Fruits or flowers the rest of the year.
Did I hear "cookies"? That's a lot of cookies, kiddo, but works for me!

Nesting Baskets
This is my favorite. I love baskets that fit inside each other and MATCH. I love matching things.
decorative baskets; wicker baskets; storage

These furry friends are obviously enjoying my favorite baskets, too. 

Fruit Baskets

fruit baskets; decorative baskets

Amazing what some green grapes can do to create just the right look!

And then there are...
laundry baskets

Hey, if they can be "in a hat"...they can be in a basket. :)

Of course, we just grazed the surface in the world of baskets. There are laundry baskets, grocery baskets, Easter baskets...what other kinds of baskets can you think of?
