Repurposed Basket

Hi Everyone
 Happy Tuesday
 Do you know what this basket
 was originally made for?
It has a large handle and the front of the basket is higher then the back
 I found this basket at a flea market and knew instantly it would work on our front gate to hold flowers...
If you guessed bicycle basket you are right!!!!!!!
 Isn't this cute....
{Love}
 to repurpose treasures


The brackets on the back of the basket
 fit perfectly over the gate

The bicycle basket looks right at Home 
hanging on the gate with pretty flowers inside
It is fun to use treasures in new and unexpected ways
grateful  that we can use this basket on the gate 
and on our bike too
romantic saying for today

"So many of my smiles begin with you"

  1. Ohhhhhhh I love the basket so so sweet. I have an old vintage bike and basket parked in my entry way of my home so I do love the old bike baskets. I love that you hung it on the gate. Very cute.

  8. What a clever repurposer you are. That looks so pretty and inviting on your gate. Your home and yard look so pretty. Can tell somebody at your house does alot of work. It's so nice you can put something like that on your gate without having to worry about vandalism.
    You and your hubs are a very attractive couple.
