ANYWAYS, even though art pieces are supposed to be like your kids where you don't favor one over the others, blah blah blah, this year, I had a few holiday baskets I really thought of keeping for myself and will probably re-finish in some capacity over the next month or so, now that the holiday rush should be pretty much over.
My "Joy to the World" basket was one of my favorite finishes this year - not just for baskets but for all of my holiday items, and it's mostly because I just love the basket itself. It's very much the style I tend to go for -- modern/contemporary with a little bit of a classic look. Since I couldn't use glue of any kind to create the basket-front, I opted for coordinating blue ribbon.
My little "Merry" basket was another one of my finishes, and again, mostly because of the basket itself. The size and shape made this particular basket stand out for me because it was very unique. It also didn't require a heck of a lot of stitching, which is always a plus.
Thanks for stopping by!
