~~~Adding Baskets to the Breakfast Room Wall~~~

Gradually I am pulling things out and adding some decor to walls and surfaces. We have been here over a year but with taking care of the other house I have not been really "on my game" so to speak. But I see the light at the end of the tunnel so I am having fun doing this and that around here. I love bskets and have been collecting them for YEARS!!! I wish I still had all of them but some got purged, sadly. I am finding places to use them here. So, this is the blank wall that I have been staring at.
 So, I pulled out some baskets and hung them around the window. I like it!!!
 I also hung this one over the hutch.
 And added the green apples to the wire basket.
 This one is to the right of the hutch.
This is to provide a background for whatever is on the shelves.
 And the topiary picture above it goes with the topiary on the shelf.
 It is hard to get a picture of this area with the ceiling fan.

I love your baskets on the wall.

I had baskets on a wall in one of our homes and I don't recall what happened to all those baskets.

Everything looks lovely.

Adding the baskets by your breakfast room window is a fabulous idea and it reminds me of a farm with charácter, warmth and coziness! Beautiful, I love it!
Thank you sweet and pretty Pinky for your kind wishes on our anniversary. Enjoy the weekend.

I love baskets, too, Pinky, and you made such good use of that empty wall space. I think it adds such great texture to your decor.
