Time for a new basket!

"Wild Thing" will make your heart sing!  What do they say... Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery?  This leopard print is our tribute to the animal kingdom, and you will love how it looks with every style and colour you put with it!

Baskets Make Awesome Teacher Gifts!

My neighbour Alexis always stops by to shop when she needs a gift.  Alexis has a little cookie business and makes the best Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookies in the Western World!  Her cookies are a delight to anyone receiving them especially when they are packed in a Darn Cute Basket!  When a teacher doesn't need yet one more mug... here's an idea for you.

Thank you for sharing your creativity Alexis, and may you conquer Europe with your freshly baked cookies when you move to Sweden this summer.  Your neighbours will all be missing you here and are already looking forward to your return!  Bon Voyage!

Surprise! We have Basket Covers!

Many people have asked if we have covers for our baskets, and now the answer is yes!  We're starting with 2 colour choices, available only in large.  They are easy to use and will keep your basket contents private!  Perfect if you need a little insulation for picnic items!

There may be new colours next year.  I'll keep you posted, but for now check out Chocolate and Battleship Basket Covers!

Folding Basket is a Hit at the Wine Store

Here it is Saturday evening and I've just returned from the neighbourhood wine store, where the cashier exclaimed that I'd just won the award for the best re-usable wine tote! Of course there was no prize, just the pride that I felt when the man remarked on my folding basket and how perfect it is for carrying my wine home without plastic or paper.

This particular folding basket is the small Classic Navy and easily accommodates 4 bottles of wine. As I like to be co-ordinated in colour, I chose something that goes with my blue jeans, and sets off my pink top.

Have a Zen Moment with Your Basket

Wow, where has the time gone? I can't believe it's been so long since I've posted here!

I was having a zen moment on my way home from a Pilates class this morning, and I want to share my experience with you. This basket is perfect for a trip to the gym. Lots of room for a water bottle and towel and a yoga mat fits perfectly across the top. Zippered pocket accommodates all those things we cannot bear to be without, like an iphone, a little cash, and keys (for your car or bicycle lock!). Don't you just love spring?

What have you been using your baskets for? Please write and send pictures!

We Have a Winner!

Congratulations Kathy D. from Sidney, BC for suggesting the winning name for our newest basket -

French Cafe!

Now it's time to pick out your prize basket Kathy... I wonder if it be the lovely French Cafe?

You, my wonderful customers, submitted 18 excellent name suggestions in all, and because each one exhibited so much thought and depth I required a panel of judges to help me choose the winner. Don't forget you are all winners though, and will receive $2 OFF your next basket purchase or choose two baskets and SAVE $4.

Thank you very much for playing!

Name this Basket!

I love it when we get a new pattern or colour of basket, and here is our latest addition - a beautiful, cranberry red stripe. But honestly calling it "Cranberry Red Stripe" doesn't do it for me, and probably not for you either.
So here's a challenge for you: Submit your idea of a great name between now and Friday, September 4, 2009. The one who submits the winning name will be awarded a basket of her/his choice. But that's not all. When you submit your name suggestion, you will automatically receive a $2 gift certificate toward your next purchase of your choice of basket (one certificate per person please), and you will also receive recognition here on my blog.

Here are a couple of hints on what the winning name will provide. The name will recognize the particular pattern or colour, or emotion that the basket patterns elicits, be non-seasonal, and be unique and compelling.

Have fun with it, and submit as many suggestions as you wish... Good Luck!

Send me an e-mail or click on comments to submit your name idea. I can't wait to see what you come up with!

Rose Garden & Classic Navy

Wow! These are both hot sellers and they look magnificent together. Perfect for all occasions, but especially great as New Baby Gifts! You know... pink for girls, blue for boys.

I'm Excited About the New Additions!

Classic Navy & Rose Garden were delivered today! I am very pleased to say that they are all I could have hoped for.

The navy is very traditional with a little pale silver/grey piping to set it off. Believe me, the photo does not do it justice.

Rose Garden is a beautiful shade of pink with a rose pattern on it. The colours are magnificent for the young and the.. we shall say... sophisticated.

Both are perfect for personal use, and for any gift giving occasion! Which reminds me - I have a bridal shower and 2 weddings to attend this month. All I need is to find out the brides colours and I will be able to choose the right one to stuff with Tupperware! That will be perfect!

I'll be picking out an outfit to set one of them off tomorrow. I'll let you know what I hear on the streets. They are sure to be attention grabbers!

Fantastic New Additions!

We requested navy and we got it! "Classic Navy"! A very good traditional colour that goes well with our West Coast lifestyle!

All the little girls and big girls too will want our latest addition, "Rose Garden". It's very pretty in pink!

The Latest Addition Is Sage Garden!

Here it is! The latest addition to the garden collection arrived today! "Sage Garden" is a lovely combination of pale green flowers and brown leaves on a sage background. It is - like all the others - a must have. Look for me out and about with it. I just know it will attract a lot of attention!
