I thought I'd show you the little flower basket I put together today
one of my very dearest friends was moving house, if you've been following my posts this week you'll know I haven't had a lot of spare time...
...but I wanted to drop something by today, something a little different than a bunch of flowers
so I picked up this cute wicker basket at the thrift store, and wouldn't you know they had a plant sale going on, saving me an extra trip to the garden centre
I gave it a quick coat of fresh paint - glossy white (sorry, forgot the before shot!)
grabbed a piece of burlap and another of white broderie anglaise to line the basket
tied a bunch of vintage laces and ribbons on the handle
and there you have it!!
now I know I could have done a whole lot more with it, but the point is, I only had a couple minutes which just goes to show it doesn't have to take a long time to pretty a gift up a little:-)
oh, and then I found this cute card which I thought would be great as a "welcome to your new home", so I tucked that in the basket too
