Happy First Day of Spring!! Hope you're enjoying the day! Today, I just wanted to share a new thrift find.
With temps in the 80's, a couple of days ago, I decided to get out and run some errands. I made a stop by one of the Salvation Army thrift stores in the area; and hoped to find some great new items. It can be 'hit or miss', when it comes to finding treasures. I didn't really see anything that I just had to have; but, as I was about to leave, this wicker picnic basket caught my eye.
I've seen several in the thrift stores; but, they are usually in horrible condition. This one was in great shape, right down to the leather straps.
It also came with 4 mugs and 4 sets of serveware, still in the original wrappers.
I looked at the sticker; and the price was $4.00!! SOLD!!
For this post, I wanted to see what it looked like all "dressed up" for a Spring picnic. The red kitchen towel is part of a set that I purchased at Williams-Sonoma, a couple of years ago. The green olive towel was a gift from my Mother-in-law.
Dear Hubby has made me promise that we will actually use the basket for a picnic soon! I would love to spend a weekend on the Texas Hill Country Wine Trail. It is beautiful in the Spring! One of my favorite wineries is Becker Vineyards.
Their vast lavender fields are amazing in April and May! They also have a lavender shop, on the property, selling everything from soaps and lotions, to sachets and more!
Additionally, they host a great Lavender Festival each year. This year's festival will be in early May.
Needless to say, I will be more than ready to enjoy a picnic at the vineyard this year! I can't wait!
Hope you are enjoying this first day of Spring!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
