I have just started putting together a few basket.First one finished is various strips of materials, fleece, cord, cotton, silk ect and a big shiny silver emergency blanket.This is at the bottom and the excitement my 7mth mindee shows when she comes across this is fantastic.If you haven't got one then it's a fab investment.I paid just £2 for 2 off ebay :)

Next one is kitchen utensils including silicon whisk, silicon brushes, holey spoon, fish slice ect.This is on going and I add as I find.

I'm going to make a bathroom one too and add flannels, sponge, pumice stone ect.

Would love to hear what others have though :)

In mine there is :_

shells (various shapes and sizes)
wooden rings ( again different sizes)
Pine combs
a wooden handled shaving brush
2 wooden egg cups
2 wooden egg shapes
a foot pumice thing in the shape of a fish
a wooden spaghetti measurer
some bells
a bath sponge
some pieces of bark from a tree

Tend to move things around every few weeks or so but that's what's in it today!!!!

Mine are rectangular wicker baskets with a cream lining from Dunelm Mill £4.99 each, they are about 18" x 12" and about 6" deep.

to all those that put keys in their baskets...
just a little note you might want to know ......

found this out on a course...

A Lead Poisoning Prevention resource states: Sucking on car keys is dangerous. Even handling car keys can leave lead on one's hands . . . Never give a child real car keys or brass items to play with.

I've been looking for some new baskets so thank you for that. Haven't been to Dunelm Mill for ages.
