Lidi's beautiful basket

Hi all. My week got off to a great start as my beautiful Lidi Stroud/Basketcase Miniatures  picnic basket arrived today. If you don't follow Lidi's blog, a) you should, and b) she had a give-away of this little basket and I WON!!! It arrived today and was promptly sat in it's future home, my French shop kitchen. It needs some styling (well, more so the kitchen accessories) to make it look like they are just about to pack the basket for a picnic, but even so it looks so stunning. Thank you Lidi, it is truly amazing and I feel very lucky. Thank you! (Sorry, photos taken at night so they're a bit terrible. Will style this up and take some more photos!)

    1. Hi Jodi. This is my much neglected French shop, which I started way back when I started my blog. I still adore it, but it needs finishing up. And lots of accessories! Xx

    1. Hi Elizabeth. Nice to hear you like my French kitchen! I started this house when I started my blog, so it is sitting in my spare room about 90% complete. I need to have a crack at getting a few last things done on it. It is essentially Lea Frisoni's maison. I love it so much! Xx
