~Finally Found a Wire Basket~

Hello everyone! I hope your all doing great on this second day of spring, I took a couple days off from blogging to just enjoy the weather and my son Michael who came home from Annapolis. I’ve also been getting ready for our vacation to Jamaica on April 5th, washing summer clothes and trying to see if everything will fit in one suitcase, 25.00 a suitcase, can you believe it? I’d rather spend the money being in Jamaica than on a suitcase.
Yep, I finally did find one at TJ Maxx and was really excited about it, it’s black but that’s okay! I wanted to replace the basket that I had had for ten years or so with it and it does update the bookcase. I keep all my camera equipment in it so I don’t misplace it, so it seems to be serving me well!.
This is so hard to decorate, at least for me, it just seems that if I add any color here it screams that color if you know what I mean.
Here is a closer look, I did find the green moss balls at our Dollar Tree but I do think I need to buy another package, I’ll look tomorrow when I go into work. 
I did manage to run in GW twice, the first time I went I left empty handed, that hasn’t happened in a while. The second time I only found two things, a terra cotta candleholder that I thought would go well on my patio table since it’s so heavy and I doubt the wind would blow it over and a Pottery Barnish looking shelf that I didn’t take a picture of because it is just a flat piece of angled wood.


I like the whitewash on it, I set it up here to show you and obviously the candle doesn’t go to well with it but I think you get the picture:)
I’ve been enjoying viewing blogs from the south and all their blooming flowers and trees, just makes me sigh but yesterday I saw my first Robin…hooray! The leaves on the trees are sprouting so I’m sure in another week it will just start to burst out all the sudden!
Here is hoping that you are busy in this beautiful weather creating or painting something:)

Love the wire basket!! I've been looking for one, but haven't had any luck. We have a TJ Max about 20 minutes away...might have to go check it out.
I have that same candle holder...I've had mine forever and don't even remember where it came from.
Our flowers are just starting to bloom and the grass is now really green.
Have a great week.

Hi Rondell- I remember when you could fly and take 2 or 3 bags with no charge! I'm with you- spend the money there rather than on a bag!

Happy Spring Monday to you. xxoo Diana

Great basket! You found some good stuff. :)
We don't have spring yet, either. Just some crazy weather. I hope it gets here soon!
