Baskets are great!  They come in all sorts of shapes and sizes and can be used in so many functional ways.  Besides being great for holding dirty laundry or junk mail, did you know you can also use them as décor?
 
I know what you are thinking… Baskets? Aren’t those so 1987? And in some ways, yes, they are. But have you seen what is considered a basket these days ~ Metal is so in!
 
I found this great metal locker basket at TJ Maxx for only $7!  Throughout the year I am going to share with you how I am using it, and how you can repurpose or use yours!

For Valentine’s day, why not make a
“love-basket” to share everything you love? 
 
Here’s what I included in mine –  a craft I made with some girlfriends, pictures of family in a glitzy little frame, corks from special occasions and date nights, a box of chocolates, and some red berries and snowflake garland for something extra.
 
I have this sitting on my sofa table in my living room, and it will be one of the first things my guests will see when they enter my home, giving the chance to share my loves and reminisce old times. What would you put in your love-basket?  Please share with us on FB at www.facebook.com/StagedandStyled/!
