basket case

I love baskets as of late...great storage and oh-so pretty to look at.  For dish towels, for Jackson's toys and blocks, for trips to the farmers' market...wire baskets, market baskets, which ever.  How cool is this market backpack?  You can buy it online from this adorable local home goods store called Brook Farm General Store.  I'll be mentioning it a ton here because I can't tell you how excited I am about this sweet little shop and that I don't have to go far for great little finds and a little inspiration!

And, if you are lucky enough to be in south-western France in July, there is an annual basket fair where the local craftsmen sell their wares.  (I want to go to there.)   

P.S.  And for the really really lucky ones who get to go to this particular basket festival in Issigeac during the month of July, could also be one of those spectators we see on the sides of the roads cheering on the cyclists in the Tour de France (and, you would also make Jeff very jealous...!) 
For us, for now, we will just have to wait until Jackson gets a bit older and settle on imaging ourselves there and dream about it.

...happy weekend!
