Wall Basket

This little wall basket is stained black, roughed up with sand paper and stained with my boiled black walnut stain. I stitched a label for the front that says "1803" and attached it to the center front of the basket. The first picture below is with the flash off And this photo is with the flash on, so that you can see the label better.
Measurements are: 8 3/8" long, 8 5/8" tall to the tip of the hanger and the pouch is approximately 4" high and 4 1/2" deep. Sorry, tallow berries not included.
Price for this wall basket is $23.00 plus shipping - I charge actual shipping, I'm guessing around $6.00-$7.00 continental USA. I do refund any overage. ~Ann
This particular basket is SOLD - thank you Robyn - but I will gladly make one to your specifications.

New Baskets

This first basket is a storage basket for your plastic bags that you get at the grocery store, Walmart, KMart, etc. The top is open and you simply stuff the bag in the top and as a bag is needed, you pull one out of the bottom opening. The basket body is 9 1/2" high and 10" wide. The handle adds another 3 1/2" inches to the height for a total of just under 14" tall. The basket is shaped in a half circle, the back is flat so it will hang against the wall and the front curves out in a semi-circle.Colors in this one are smoked reed with 2 rows of navy. The basket was stained with boiled black walnut shells. A mustard barn star is tied on the center for a prim look. 

Basket number 2 is also a wall basket. It is approximately 15" long, 5" deep and 11" tall to the top of the handle. The rim is stained black and the entire basket was dipped in my boiled black walnut stain. The crows and stars are wired onto a rusty wire and then I tied the wire to the basket.
I can envision all sorts of uses for this one. Hang in the bathroom and store rolled wash clothes in it. Near the back door it could hold several pairs of gloves and a couple of hats. By the front door it could hold mail and keys. The bottom is a "closed" bottom, meaning there are no holes for anything to fall through, that makes it the perfect storage basket. This one is also $28.00 plus $8.50 continental US shipping.

Tea Caddy Basket

Perfect for the tea lover in your life! One side of this little basket holds your tea bags and the other the tea saucer/caddy. The basket comes with a tea caddy/saucer included. The the two choices I currently have for the caddy/saucer are the pail of daisies and the salt box house. They are handmade by a lady in Indiana, Marjorie Kennedy. Marjorie does a fabulous job with all her pottery.

Top view from the end so you can see the divider -

Looking down into the basket from above, filled bottom so nothing falls through.

Measurements are 5 1/4" long, 4 1/2" wide, 2 3/8" to the top edge of the basket, 3 1/4" to the top of the divider. The tea saucer/caddy is approximately 3 3/4" in diameter. The price of this basket (with saucer included) is $17.00 plus shipping - I charge actual shipping which in the continental USA will be around $5.00.
