A tisket, a tasket...

... the perfect peanut basket!

Most of you know that I love giving little treats to the beautiful furry and feathered friends who visit our yard... But this bag of peanuts is an eyesore, sitting by the patio door...


Bingo! A large bag of peanuts fits perfectly into this beautiful lined basket that my friend from Ohio gave me last summer (back then it was overflowing with goodies she brought me from Amish country!)...


A little quilted placemat on top and voila! The perfect place to store peanuts! (I imagine I'll feel a bit like Little Red Riding Hood when I take that out to the backyard with me!)
Thank you, Jill - see how pretty the peanut stash looks now? And I owe it all to you!!

Awww...I can't wait to see the photos of your furry and feathered friend sharing the stash with you. Well, I guess the feathered friends get something different, but still, they make for fun photos! :)

What a beautiful solution! It looks so very pretty. I love those hardwood floors, by the way. I grew up with those so have a special fondness for them.

How fun to have a little Red Riding Hood in you. Very practical and creative idea.

Lucky little squirrels! Hey...wait...I think I just saw one hiding one of your peanuts in my front flower bed!

Hi Donna :)

I'm glad you put that place mat on top! The squirrels and birds would have spied that through the glass and busted in LOL

It looks absolutely precious like that :)

I wonder if "chip" will make an appearance or perhaps the squirrel? I know they'll enjoy those nuts :0)

This is a perfect use of your basket! Now the peanuts will be ready and easy to get to.

I love the blue glasses in the post below. Lucky girl!

To bad your daughter didn't get to Mel in person. But it will be fun to see the movie and know she was right there where they filmed.

Hugs,
