Cottage Style Linky Party #13

I think that baskets are an important part of cottage life.

They are useful for trips to the farmers market....

They can store large quantities of stuff like apples...

Or bottles of wine...

They can be seasonally decorated...

Or vintage...

Or be made of wire...

Or had former lives...

They can be decorative...

Or useful...

Or hide a kitty...

Baskets are wonderfully useful and utterly charming in a cottage!

Welcome to Cottage Style Linky Party #13!

So many wonderful photos of cottage life last week!

Thank you all for joining the party!

Let's see some highlights...

How cute is Jann's fall porch tweak at Have a Daily Cup of Mrs Olson!

I love the color of that cabinet and all of her fall decorating touches!

These stamped eggs are so adorable on Fresh Eggs Daily!

Stop by to see Lisa's easy directions to make you own set!

I must admit the title of this photo sucked me in, well, because 

duck taping pumpkins sounds like my kind of crafting!

to read her hysterical account 

of making these crafty duck taped pumpkins!
