Vintage Tea Pot Basket
I was looking through one of my cookbooks, and it had a chapter on picnics. One of the picnics was a fall picnic and it had these neat basket that nestled and insulated a tea pot! I thought how cool! I didn't know what it was called, didn't know how to search for it. So time passed and I forgot about it. Then one day on Ebay, I accidently came across the basket, how I do not know! Some baskets offered were antique, some vintage, some in good shape and a few in bad. I finally came across one that was in good shape and affordable, and now its mine. I just love this precious basket, tea pot and cups.
Isn't the lining pretty, and everything just nestles so neat and sweet?
I am envisioning meeting my friends in the park on a pretty fall day, stitching, knitting and drinking tea in the autumn sunshine. Wouldn't that be fun? Hmmmmm, maybe I should start planning a fall picnic tea party with Kimber and Belinda!
