Wire Basket Love

Don't you love wire baskets?

I do!

I've got several around the house.  One of them came from my daddy's shop and I'll probably blog about that one some day, but for now, here's a pretty wire basket I found at Walmart for just $5!

Does that table top look familiar?  It should.  It's the red buffet I revealed last week. 

Yeah, that's right.  There is a Kinky Friedman book in my wire basket.  It's sitting right on top of my book of daily prayers.  Should that tell me something?  Ha. 

 I filled this basket up with things that I had around the house, keeping with the rustic  theme of the room. 

 I added a little mason jar, the unity candles from our wedding, and an old youth hymnal that my mama gave me a while back. 

Did I ever tell you the theme of our dining room/formal living room area? Well, if not, I'm doing a family heirloom theme.  I'm using decorations given to us or made by our families or that have some kind of family meaning behind them.  This hymnal is very important.  It takes me back to one of those silly sister moments when we went through this hymnal just a few years ago and sang all the songs we knew.  And that's right, baby...this hymnal is now turned to "Victory in Jesus" my all time fave.  Em will be so proud. 

 You can see the rest of the dining room when we do the big reveal of our table (if I can ever get those dang chairs painted!).  Ooh, I can't wait to show y'all!  We moved the table into the house this past weekend and it looks amazing!!

Valentine Wreath

I made this easy Valentine Day heart wreath for our front door and boy, do I love it!

I kept the colors pretty neutral so I can use it year round if I want.
