Baskets In The Garden/Lifestyle Of Love Blog Hop

Welcome to the Lifestyle Love VAFR Blog Hop. 
A big thank you to Cindy of County Road 407 for pulling this group together. 
We get together every other month to share our love of Vintage, Antique, Farmhouse and Repurposed. What a fun hop.

If you are stopping by from Le Cultivator, welcome. I'm so glad you are here. Emily's blog is just the cutest. Her styling is perfection.

Our theme this month is baskets and crates. 
I'm going to talk about baskets in the garden. The garden has been my escape this spring and summer so that is where I'm spending most of my time. 
If I'm not in it, I'm watching gardening channels on YouTube. 
 Linda Vater inspired me to bring some baskets outside to use in the garden.
It brings a different and unique texture to the yard. 
 I'd never thought to bring them outside because of deterioration over time but thrift store baskets,  are a good alternative because if they disintegrate, it's not a big deal.
I rummaged around and found a few baskets to bring outside.
I went to the thrift store and bought two for six dollars each.
I have them in easy reach to hold supplies or clippings.

I have some moss growing in a French style basket.

A trash pick find holds pretty perky petunias. 

The shed got a makeover this spring. Bushel baskets corral different gardening supplies.
They are functional and they look cute! 

Farmhouse style wire baskets hold flower pots on the baker's rack.

I think this one came from an old refrigerator.

That is it for now.
I hope this has inspired you to bring some baskets out into the garden.
Next up is Lora B of Create and Ponder.
She has an amazing eye for vintage and a cute way displaying her finds.

  1. So many great ways to use baskets outdoors in your garden Katie! I love all the flowers you planted this year and how you've been finding respite out there. I know you guys have been working hard on everything and it all looks great. Hugs and happy summer, CoCo

  2. Great idea to bring baskets outside and use them for gardening, Katie. I've had a couple outside, but kind of forget about it; put one on the front of my bike last year and planted it with a cocoa liner. I loved seeing your garden shed makeover! What a fun place. Yes, gardening has been a retreat from this crazy 2020!

  3. Hi Katie, you know I love your baskets in the garden. Your shed looks great too!


  4. What a beautiful garden you have Katie! The shed is absolutely fabulous too.

  5. I never really thought to use baskets in the garden (probably because I don't have a garden) but goodness I love the look. And you've given me so many great ideas with your backyard retreat. Thanks so much for joining in. Pinned!

  6. I think of your backyard of sort of a "secret garden". I love what you've done out there with the greenhouse, garden shed and your woodlands. It's all amazing and I know you guys have worked so hard. You've inspired me to take out some of my baskets to use for tools and such, I just never had thought about doing that. It's looking very English country. love it all!

  7. Very pretty Katie. Love all your pretty baskets. Happy Weekend.

  8. I love all your pretty baskets Katie! They bring a lot of coziness to your garden.

  9. I adore baskets and use them often. YOu have some pretty ones!

  10. I am now inspired to find some thrift store baskets to use in my garden! I have never thought about using baskets as a planter and I love the look. Your garden shed is amazing!

  11. Katie your garden area and potting shed is dreamy! We are certainly vintage soul sisters, as I also have been spending all my time in the garden except when it is rainy or too hot. Then I am watching Linda Vater videos or Laura from Garden Answer.
    Your baskets are so cute and I love all the ways you used them. I also love that baker's rack and the way you styled it.

    So fun hopping with you!
