Sweet Basil

Welcome…I’m so glad you’re here!  Today I’m sharing a sweet idea for one of the baskets now available in my new Krafted Simply store…and I’ve fancied it up with the awesome Peonie Die from The Stamp Market.



I LOVE baskets of all kinds…and this one is perfect for Easter, May Day, Mother’s Day…and things of all seasons!  Each spring I buy lots of plants for our home garden…and I like to gift a few to my fellow gardners, too.  Truth be told, my husband is the real gardener here…but I plant and tend to the herbs, so I guess I’m a gargdner of sorts.  Ha!  Yes…I digress…but I just knew this basket would be the perfect way to gift this sweet basil gem.



This basket is currently available in kraft only…and if you like kraft as much as I do you’ll love how this basket looks!  And this flower might look familier.  I’ve cut this flower and leaves in these colors before…and I couldn’t resist using them again.  Why change something that works, right?



I have someone in mind for this little gift…and I’ll leave it on her front porch with a sweet note.  I hope she loves it!



Thanks for stopping by!
