The New/Old Blue Basket - Fresh Country Decorating Ideas

 A quick fun post about my yummy finds at the yard sales last week.
This wonderful basket was from the same lady.
I came home and told my hubby it was like going to my own yard sale.
She and I had a lot of the same stuff!

But the paint on this basket was just the perfect shade of country blue for my kitchen.
 I had a wreath in this spot for a long time, but I loved the idea of the pop of blue and decorating the inside of the basket with goodies.
 Here you can see the painted blue wall next to the basket.
I am still loving my new-cottage look in the kitchen.
 Sweet and simple.  With lots of plants of course.
 I am still in love with the vintage print over the high chair.
I pretty much built the color scheme of the room around this sweet print.
I have also been adding to my white dishes last week in my sales.
I will share those soon with a new table centerpiece.
You can see a peek of it here!

Come back... I would love to share more of my ideas and vintage decor with you.
