Trinket basket -D

Today has been a pyjama day meanng I played in my craft room for a while.  I found these lil baskets under all my junk and knew exactly what I was going to do with them - it did not happen.  I knew I as going to paint them white (which I did) and I was planning to really bling them up - again it didn't happen that way. First of all after painting them white I lined the top basket using satin from a wedding dress.  I found some scraps of burgndy ribbon and wrapped that rounf the middle with a bow I made.  I then made a tiny flower out of the same ribbon.  I used 3 applique leaves as could not be bothered to make any lol.  I then stuck 2 strands of pearl string around the top.  At that point I was looking for other stuff to put on it but after much thought felt it best to leave it as is. 

 Hope you like it as much as I do and please feel free to drop by again 

Hugz and love to all
