Seasonal Transitions with Bountiful Baskets


Happy Tuesday, Friends and welcome to the Bountiful Baskets Blog Hop! Amber from Follow the Yellow Brick Home is hosting, and I must say I love her idea of showcasing simple baskets as home and garden decor. If you hopped over from Petite Haus, I know you were inspired by Angelina's charming ideas. Now, I'm sure you won't be surprised that my baskets are all thrift store and yard sale finds. Today I'll show you some of my favorite thrifty upcycled baskets plus how I use several from my collection to transition from fall to the holidays...

First, a small vintage basket is filled with purple asters for fall and transitions for Christmas by switching the asters to amaryllis and adding a chalkboard card greeting.

This wire basket is the perfect size for displaying pieces from my collections of vintage dishes in the kitchen. For fall, I filled it with acorns. leaves and herbs, displaying Cunningham and Pickett Wheat Spray dishes.   


My Thrift Store Addiction seasonal transitions


To transition for the holidays, I switched the acorns for eucalyptus, and replaced the Wheat Spray dishes with Termocrisa Holly Berry and jadeite. Termocrisa is milk glass that was manufactured in Mexico by Fire King.

A moss covered basket creates an instant centerpiece by adding fresh sunflowers for fall or faux floral accents for the holidays through winter. You may notice that I usually add whimsical figurines to my basket vignettes like the little deer above...

  6. You have reminded me that I love purple asters, but I didn't see any this year. I love how you have used them in your baskets. The vintage wheat dishes pattern you have is new me and I love them! I am also crazy about the kitschy Christmas vignette with jadite! Now you have gotten me just a wee bit excited for the holidays too!

    I love how you have decorated your bicycle for the season. Lot's of creative ideas here. Thanks for hopping with us!

  8. There are so many pretty baskets in this post and gosh your flowers are all gorgeous too! It's always fun to see how people decorate their bicycles. We have a bike parade every Christmas Eve when I'm home and it's so much fun. I love how you decorated yours. Hugs, CoCo

  9. Love all your baskets; I use mine for all kinds of stuff--including half finished projects--they look so much better "artfully arranged" instead of stuffed in another plastic bag--also reminds me to work on them! Your purple asters are my birth month flower (Sept.) so I especailly enjoyed them! I can't get them to winter over in Maine!

  13. Cecilia, I really love how you've shown the fall seasonal use AND the transitional adjustments to continue enjoying your baskets through the holidays. The wire basket with dishes (of course!) and seasonal items are my favorite styles, but they're all inspiring. It's always fun to see your vintage finds with your creative twists.
