Randomness – Market Basket

You may remember the post about this market basket  I found at an estate sale. To reach the basket I climbed over a lawnmower and other tools.   I am sure everyone thought I was a crazy lady in high heels climbing all over the packed shed.  I was determined to have the basket!

You haven’t seen the other Market Basket I bought at auction last July.  The pictures are not great  (that is an understatement).  I knew I wouldn’t be home for quite a while and I was running around taking random pictures quickly for future blog post.  These were taken literally as I was rushing out the door to catch my flight to Dad’s.


Lastly,  I can’t believe I forgot to show you one of my Christmas gifts from Steve.  After a lot of research we decided on the Canon T3.  It seemed to have good reviews and we found it at a great price.


The camera came with the 18-55 lens and we also ordered the 55-250 telephoto lens.  It has been fun playing around with the camera but I still have so much to learn!

Thanks for visiting and I hope you have a great weekend!

  1. I love that first basket, Sherry! The second one you found is great, too. It reminds me a bit of the one I got from Joann's, except mine is lighter in color. I still have to/want to paint it with the French Linen chalk paint {which I have on hand}. I guess I'm putting it off because I think it's going to take awhile to get it into all the crevices of the wicker. I'm such a procrastinator. : )

  2. Oh Sherry I want one of those basket so bad..every time I find one it's out of my budget..I love both of yours girl..I pray your Dad is doing better my dear friend..Please have a great weekend..From my mountain to yours hugs and love..Gloria

  3. Hi Sherry, I love them both. I got one at the Alameda Antiques Fair and I love it. I put magazines in mine and at Christmas I used it by the tree to hold wrapping paper rolls. They are handy little items to have around

  4. Hi Sherry! I adore the textures and weaving on your "new" market basket…it is just wonderful. Will you be able to go back to Virginia any time soon? I'm sure that you miss your house and all your pretty things. You are a great daughter.

  5. I love a random post, Sherry…I think that's all I ever write! Love, love, love the baskets! The one on wheels is just awesome!

    I have the same camera and love it. I took an online course because it has so many great features. I'd love a telephoto lens! Have fun with it!


  6. Good luck with your new camera Sherry. I am hopeless with mine. :(. Love your new basket and the one on wheels too! I miss my junkin' buddy. I miss someone who is willing to wade through piles of scary stuff looking for that one treasure, roam through centuries old river brick buildings with no heat and furry creatures and ride up to someone's home uninvited just because we saw something great in the yard. 🙂

  7. That market basket is totally unreal. I love it, and I think I would have climbed over everything to get to it too. The second basket is wonderful too. Love the size. The camera is a super gift. Have fun learning. Hugs, Marty

  8. Sherry, that basket was worth the climb. What a great find, must be those high heels that brought you luck 🙂
    Congrats on you new camera. What a great gift.

  9. That is the greatest market basket I've ever seen and I'd climb over mountains of junk to get to it too! I have the Canon T1i & it takes great pictures even though I still haven't read through the instructions! Blessings to you, Patti

  10. I really love your market baskets! Aren't you lucky to have found 2 of them? I don't blame you for climbing over things to grab one of them! Your camera sounds like a good one! I know you will get a lot of use with it.

  11. Hilarious!
    I laughed at the thought of running around taking pictures of home, for future posts. I do the same things sometimes I just go around taking random photos…in case I get the urge to post!

    you're funny, Pat

  12. Love the baskets, Sherry! And, congrats on your new camera … I know you'll have fun learning all that it can do. Prayers for your dad, too ….

  13. Love the baskets Sherry. And for the record, I've trash-picked in my Sunday best. LOL!! My hubby got me a Canon Rebel for Christmas and I'm in love. If you have any tips for me, I'd love to hear them.

  14. I'm lusting after BOTH those market baskets. I'm determined to find one. I actually saw lots of Parisian women using these types of baskets for their market shopping. I just upgraded my camera to one with video and am still learning how to use it.
