Friday's Find: Yard Sale Picnic Basket

Hello Friends! Was it just me or did this seem like a long week? Well, thrifty Friday is finally here and this girl is ready for the weekend! Are you ready for today's fabulous find?

I found this sweet picnic basket at a yard sale.  The handles are nice and sturdy and it is in great condition. I even considered leaving it "as is"..........nah!

All she needed was a coat of robin's egg blue and a little bling!  I have been picking up Vintage silver flatware here and there whenever I see a good buy.  I love the contrast of its worn patina against the freshly painted basket.  A tisket, a tasket, a hankie in my basket!

Until next time, happy hunting!

  1. Love this Cecilia and the hankie matches so well. Love that color. Wishing for that color for my clock case, but not spray paint.
    Enjoy your week-end.
