Baskets on my mind.

Notice these babies in targets ad this past week?

Love them as much as I do? I was {atinybit} nervous about how dark they were. In my mind I had envisioned something a little lighter like these beauties.

Or even something vintage inspired like these.

But Target came through. I love them. Very similar to these babies, which were way out of my price range.

I think I like the 9.99 dollar price tag better! I still need one more, but since they were on sale it was slim pickinz. No worries they gave me a rain check for the next one. Whoohoo!

Little by little the entry way is getting finished! Isn't it funny when you have a storage system set up, like say, these baskets for gloves and hats, and no one uses it?

Really, guys..Really?

Lets put them everywhere except the baskets.

I guess they need a tag on them that says "PUT GLOVES IN ME!" :)

LOL, when you maket that tag for the basket, I want to see a picture. I'm sure they will be cute...oh sorry, you were just kidding? Oh... well. It sounds like a brilliant idea.

I absolutely love your blog by the way. You have inspired me tons and tons. I've got a few things on my decorating to do list that came straight from your blog.

In my entryway, there is a basket for each kid (2) for their shoes. Good sized baskets, may I add. Ok, here's the punch line. Who actually puts the shoes into the baskets? 10 points if you said me! I pick them up off the floor in front of the door and put them in said baskets. Why, you ask? Because I get tired of saying (day after day after day after day) "what are these baskets for, kids??? That's right ! Shoes!". PS, my kids are 16 and 10.

I like them!! Maybe you could make a little paper tag in the shape of a mitten and tie it on with a ribbon for the girls? :) Your entryway is going to look so fab! Btw, thanks for the "Follow." :)

I like your baskets. The color looks fine. I bought 3 baskets at Ikea last summer. I decided I only needed 2 so I gave one to my daughter. Just recently I asked for it back. I have a use for it now!

Love these baskets, I just looked at them at Target and put them back down because I am only suppose to be shopping for my bedroom at the moment, but the closet is part of the bedroom so techncally I guess I could have bought them. Love your blog, stop by and say hi if you get the chance.
