BASKETS FOR ALL + HAPPY WEEKEND

my humble basket collection, and a few of my pinterest pins lately

baskets and i have been enjoying a bit of a love affair lately. it's like i see a basket and my pulse instantly slows. ahhhh, baskets. i like baskets for purses, i like baskets for toys, i like baskets for blankets, i like baskets for house slippers. all i want in this life is a couple of good baskets! and maybe some decent house plants, but that's another thing all together.

a few of my favorites from around the web:
01 || 02 || 03 || 04 || 05 || 06 || 07 || 08 || 09

not related: i finally saw world war z with a girlfriend last night (my first movie in a theatre since christmas!) and got to experience the wonder that is the 83rd street reclining leather sofa seats first hand. RECLINING LEATHER SOFA SEATS. really solid movie, that world war z. there was this one scene where brad pitt was wearing a navy blue thermal with a muslin scarf and a couple of friendship bracelets, with his dirty hair all tucked behind his ears, where i was like, hey i'd wear that!

  1. i badly want basket #6...for what? i don't know. i can definitely picture my ginger kitty's head sticking out of it, which is useful enough for me.

  2. Hahah definitely relate with you on brad pitt's wardrobe throughout the movie - I mean,I'd totally wear that everyday if I could (hey, I'd even take his hair!).

    Also this heat wave is heating DC hard, it's not a good sign when you look like you just worked out after arriving to work post-metro and walk. SIGH. Stay cool and Happy Friday!

  6. I've been obsessed with baskets lately too, but I'm really not willing to spend 50$ on one. A few weeks ago I found a bunch on clearance at TJ Maxx (15$ folks!) and I went a little crazy. Baskets for every room!

  11. Haha that's pretty funny about the beg bugs. My sister is terrified of bed bugs- She won't go in movie theaters, libraries, sit down on the subway, or on any benches...

  13. i totally have that romper in my checkout at anthropolgie.com. i think. it looks like it. it looks great on you, maybe i'll go click "buy" now. If I am wrong and you got it for $15 at Forever 21 you tell me now! baskets are so good for stashing mess, and then you move, and you look in the baskets, and you are all like what is this odd menagerie of crap? you do have good taste in baskets, though.

  14. Bolga baskets are my jam. Even people who aren't into baskets-a-plenty (do these people exist?!?!?!) would find them useful. I rarely leave the house without mine, chock full of useless but totally crucial items for my day. In other words, perfect for the lady who refuses to leave the house without the kitchen sink.
