Laurie sent goodies!

This interesting package was waiting for me when I returned from my trip to Dallas. I arrived from Laurie of Loudlife. A while back, I had entered a haiku-writing contest and she awarded me with these wonderful, fun goodies. It felt like Christmas morning.
These items are very inspiring. I can't wait to put them in something! Thanks so much, Laurie!!

A tisket, a tasket, a cool wire basket

I remember these baskets from the days when I would take the boys to the company swimming pool for an afternoon of diving and Marco Polo. I'd lug towels and sunscreen, extra clothes and shower shoes and sometimes an extra friend or two. I was secretly thankful that the pool didn't allow toys. If they did, I would look like the opening shot to that sitcom, "Yes, Dear". These baskets were quite handy. It kept us from having things strewn all over the place. Now this basket can organize all kinds of cool stuff. Maybe that ever-growing stack of Somerset Studio magazines . . .
