A tisket, a tasket

.... a pretty floral basket.

This china basket was a present to my mother from her aunt many, many years ago.  That aunt lived to be 104; she was a lovely woman and very kind to the shy young me-as-houseguest, especially along the lines of late-night buttered toast. 

I always loved this basket and for a long time believed the Tooth Fairy lived between the strips of woven china lattice; I'm so happy to give it a new home now.  It is the perfect Easter centrepiece, not least for its subtle reminder about the importance of dental care!

Happy Easter if you celebrate it, happy almost-May if not - and I hope your day has either chocolate or some other little treat in it.

My Grandma had a basket something like that. It was lost in a fire. Thanks for posting that picture- it brought back good memories.
