Thrift Store Bamboo Basket and Goodies

I found this bamboo basket at Goodwill the other day for 2.99, painted it white and arranged it with several larger shells, coral, starfish and white hydrangeas.  I first filled the bottom with packing peanuts for some height, and then arranged the stuff.  I think it looks light, airy, and beachy. 


  1. That is gorgeous. The colors are peaceful and happy, and well, I just love anything beachy.

  2. What a nice display...that basket will work for lots of things!

  3. I love the beachy feel of your basket. Very creative indeed. Happy White Wednesday to you.

    Warm wishes

  4. I love the mix of hydrangeas and beachy...who would have thought they go so well together, you did! Thanks for sharing.

  5. All the shells mixed together is so pretty andthe hydrangeas are a great mix.

    Happy WW!


  6. Great finds at Goodwill! Woo hoo! Cool combination with the shells and hydrangeas...and GREAT idea for the popcorn! I need to use that idea!!

  7. Thanks so much for stopping by and for your sweet comment about my chair! Love that basket and I'm a sucker for a shell arrangement! -shaunna :)

  8. I have found the best baskets in thrift stores because so many people seem to have a surplus. I use them a lot in my gardens to put pansies or collections of garden hand tools in. If the weather wears them out - I have only paid less than $1. This is gorgeous!!!! Jennifer jennsthreegraces stop by!!!
