I found two lovely baskets at a garage sale. I loved the baskets, but not the flowers!! So, I took out the flowers, and made my own arrangement with my stash of faux flowers. The baskets were so pretty I couldn't resist buying them. I was able to keep all the greens. That was a big help!! This time I was lucky, and found two of the same baskets. Perfect for my mantle.
I love the basket, and the handle.
I just kept filling In with different flowers until It looked right to me.

I love looking for old treasures, and bringing them back to life.
