Wall Basket Makeover

Hi Friends!
I found this vintage wall-pocket type basket at the Thrift Store for a good price. 

 It was lined with zinc!

 I was excited to see if it would hold water

so I could fill the basket with fresh flowers ....sadly it leaked so I changed my plans.
 I decided to white-wash the basket with chalk paint.
Just add water to your paint.

I added 2 stems of Lavender and Lambs' Ear that I purchased from Dollar Tree.
I hung it on the window but it needed something.....

I tied a piece of antique ribbon around the middle and tucked in a

seed packet....

It was okay.... 

I printed this postcard from the Graphic Fairy.
Tucked the postcard in the antique ribbon.
 This was my favorite look.
Which look do you like? 
I am happy how it turned out. It reminds me of May Day!
and May Day will be here before you know it-
Thanks for hanging out today!

  6. It's lovely! I remember my mother having a similar basket, although not as high as yours. I'll have to ask her if she still has it, as this looks like a great (and easy) way to decorate for spring.
