    I love having baskets around my home. Whether they are made from seagrass, bamboo, canvas or cotton fabrics, I love them all.   Things are so much neater around the house when you have baskets to store them.  I like to keep my magazines, snacks, bread,  spices and toiletries such as combs, face wash, shampoos and more in the baskets.  Therefore you would find many baskets in my living area, kitchen and bathrooms.  Here are a few lovely ones I found recently.
