Display Basket

Hi Everyone ! Boy have I missed talking to you all !
I have been in a mad scramble to get some things made for the upcoming craft shows this fall . As usual I leave everything till the last couple of months to get done .
About a week ago I went to a rummage sale and found a neat picnic  basket , of course I started to paint it before I thought to take a before picture . In this picture you can see the unpainted bottom so you can get an idea what it started out looking like .
Here is where I added more paint…
And more paint…
There ! That should just about do it !
I even painted the leather straps on the inside white so I could use it to display all the stuff I have been making this last week. This is what I am going to use it for .
I have been working on tea towels , coasters , and napkins with a French flavor.
They all have transfers using the CitraSolv method . I used graphics from the Graphic Fairy and Graphique .
Here’s everything packed away . Still lots of room for more .
So… What do you think ? Does it make a good display basket ?
And do you like my linens ?
Okay , time to get back to sewing and transferring .
I have also been working on some more altered silverware boxes. Turning them into jewelry and keepsake boxes . I’ll show you in a few days.
I hope you all are having a great day !

I'm going to take this little basket over to the Tweak It Tuesday party at the Cozy Little House.
Go on over to Brenda's and see what everyone is tweaking !
