Vintage French Laundry Basket

As the weather is starting to turn colder, my focus goes back to beautiful things inside my home.

Today, I have a beautiful and simple tip that will help you with a rather mundane chore --- laundry.  Although laundry may not be on the top of your list of beautiful things around your home, it can be.

Recently I attended Trade Days in Fredericksburg, Texas and found this beautiful Vintage French Laundry Basket. I bought it as soon as soon as I saw it.


It looks so beautiful in my laundry room.


Although it's old, it is still in wonderful condition and is very useful. 


I have folded towels, washcloths and pillow cases to make a beautiful display in the basket and added a bit of dried lavender too.


Lavender helps make so many things beautiful.


Now as you are carrying your basket through your home to put your beautifully folded laundry away, you can look down and see the simple beauty of clean towels, ruffled linen pillowcases and the smell of lavender.

You do not need a vintage basket, any large beautiful basket will do. Once you have put everything away, you can store your beautiful basket on a shelf.

 It's a simple and beautiful item for beautiful living.

Until next time,
-Robin
