I have not recently discovered baskets they have just become part of must haves in all of my staged homes. Baskets come in an array of sizes, shapes and colors.
Some examples of what they are made from include pine straw, stems, animal hair, hide, grasses, thread, and fine wooden splints. Crafts people and artist specializing in sewing and weaving these containers are called basket weavers or basket makers. This craft may be passed down from generations and the oldest baskets have been carbon dated back 10,000 to 12,000 years old. Now while those may seem a little dusty, its easy to find new baskets to use as art, storage or just to design with.
Check out these examples and see if you could find a place for one or two in your home or any space.
