Got Red? - Gift Basket

My ex DIL is very much loved.  She gifted my husband and I a beach condo stay for a week.
It's not the first time she has blessed us.  I put together a lovely red gift basket as a "Thank you".
She has the red thing going on in her kitchen.  Everything placed inside had little in cost but lots in
love.  The most expensive items were 4 pier one red coffee mugs that I utilized as the center theme

of the basket.  I made this cute print ... framed it with a red Waverly sample piece and topped it
off with a sweet vintage hankie.  I even recycled the red mesh from a cluster of onions wrapping the sugar and creamer containers.  I thought the basket turned out great.  What do you think?

I love shabby,used,chipped,white,old,vintage, antique,junky gently loved stuff. I would love to dumpster dive but I could get a citation from the county. I adore my dogs, my grand kids and bathing in my tub outside. I am sensitive, eager to make friends although self conscious about it. I am faithful and very very generous at heart. I cry over stuff sentimental and sweet. I adore April Cornell clothing (although I can't afford her stuff)and anything sheer and vintage and loose. I'd live in my pj's and never ever wear a bra again. I love the beach and dancing in public places with my grand darlings and day time babies. I adore my kids and love my hubby although I could kill him a time or two. Yard sales and thrift stores are my died and gone to heaven activities. I love to spend money on these but usually am broke.
