As I have mentioned before in previous posts I enjoy shopping at the local Goodwill store. Some times I find things and other times I come away empty handed. Most of the time I am looking for unusual things to be used in decorating. By decorating, this could be either in the house or outside. If I don't like the color I know paint can change that to fit my decor. My sweet husband has a gentle hand when painting and is always willing to be the painter for my current project (what ever it may be at the time).
In previous shopping trips I have bought these wire objects. I suppose they are just decorative and really have no real purpose. The cost was less than $2.00 for each of them - so not a lot of money was spent. However, you can not put a dollar figure on the amount of pleasure they have bought me. Yes, go ahead and say it...I am cheap.
This wire basket is the last item I have purchased. Size wise - 4 inches across and stands 3 1/4 inches tall. This picture shows a green cast to the color - but really it is more brown looking.
This one is so fragile looking. Height is 5 1/4 inches and the base is 2 1/2 inches wide. It is this gorgeous green patina in color.
This wire basket is 8 inches tall and 5 inches at the widest point. I have seen pictures of large ones that were called "egg baskets". The use for this - who knows - I just like it.
I have two of these wire carrier type baskets. They are 11 1/2 inches tall and 4 inches wide.
If anyone has an idea as to what they were originally made for - let me know.
