French Market Baskets

I am so excited,

all the stock I am ordering is starting to arrive and it is feeling more real every day

I just adore these French Market Baskets perfect for taking to the Farmers Markets on Saturday morning or for a quick trip to the grocery store.

Do you have local Farmers Markets? Ours are held once a month and we love popping in to have breakfast or coffee there as well as to buying some yummy treats for home.

The baskets are hand crafted in Morocco from natural palm fibre with strong Moroccan leather handles, choosing one to keep for myself is proving to be difficult, I am not sure what style to have as I like them all.

I am not sure that hubby is as excited as I am though, our lounge room looks a little messy and the TV is almost hidden ;-) 

Today I am taking photos, sorting and storing all of these goodies in a safe place out of the way.

Thank you for all of your supporting and encouraging comments on my last post. It is so lovely to read them and have them to look back on when my insecurities surface and I start to wonder what I am doing!!!
