Ovoid Wicker Basket

Yesterday hubby & I left our house at 4:30 a.m. and headed to Webster, Florida. Webster is a dot on the map, seemingly in the middle of nowhere, but every Monday they host the biggest and oldest flea market in the state of Florida. It takes us about an hour and a half to get there but it is well worth the trip

I have a thing for old, wicker baskets.
I love the size of this basket. It stands 18" tall, 27" if you count the handle.

I bought the sunflowers last week at the Dollar Tree for a project I am working on.

I bought a few things but this wicker basket was my favorite find.
It has an odd shape. Is it ovoid? 

This is the first thing I saw that I wanted but the last thing I bought.
I had to wait for the price to drop.

I've shown it next to a bird bath so you can see how tall it is.
Notice I have no grass. If you want a beautiful lawn in Florida it costs a lot of money. First, you have to lay sod then water a lot. I would rather spend my money on wicker baskets, etc... heehee
I took a lot of pictures at the flea market. I will do another post later plus I will show you my other treasures.
Linking up with:
