After pining over all the large quilt baskets on pinterest, blogs, etc., Momma and I came across a wonderful basket at TJMaxx in Charlotte over Christmas. Unfortunately, I had no room to shove one more single thing in our car to go home with us. So, I reluctantly left it. Then a few weeks later, when we were spending the day in Wilmington, we walked through that TJMaxx. And wouldn't ya know, they had my basket there too! I was so happy and snatched it up immediately. With basket prices being upward of 75.00 for this size, I was really excited at the 50.00 price tag. It's a soft weave which makes it a little floppy, and I was able to fit 5 blankets in it (one being in the bottom that you can't see, just in case you are counting them, and thinking that I can't count, heehee), including a large quilt. I finally convinced J to get rid of the fish tank as all of the little fish were dying, and the algae eater was getting too big, and murdering the small fish. I didn't think they were supposed to be murderous, but ours was. Psycho.
It freed up that corner that I had dreamed of having a big basket of blankets in, and so that's exactly where it went. I rearranged some of the wall decor, and added a bit more over the basket. It's a much better corner now. Plus, the surround sound speaker isn't sticking out like a sore thumb quite as badly.
It makes me want to dive in and take a nap. Ok, so it's not quite that big, but you get the point.
Doesn't that just say it's cozy nap time to you!? It does me, especially on these chilly winter days.
