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…
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!
This is my favorite. I love baskets that fit inside each other and MATCH. I love matching things.
And then there are…
