Hey Dirt Roaders!  How was the weekend?  Ours was good.  We had a little family time, away from it all.  That was a good thing.  We really enjoyed ourselves.

So….about the ostrich farming.  Um…well…that was a joke.  BUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUT…I did find a really super-awesome basket while we were away.  Of course, it caught my eye right off of the bat because it was made of “chicken wire.”  I had this vision of just what I could do with it.  I dreamed of how cozy it would look in our home.  How cozy it would feel to have it there while I was cooking a big pot of chili.  What is wrong with me?  Why does everything revolve around chili in the fall?  Don’t know…don’t care….love me some chili!

So…here I was in Marshalls/Home Goods.  I LUFFFFFFFFF that store.  This is one of the super-de-duper big stores.  SO MUCH FUN!  I hoist this ginormous basket into my cart and head off in search of the chicken farmer…and to my delight…we both agree that this is a good purchase for our abode.  I hope you love it as much as I do.  😉

I cannot wait to share with you the other “goodie” that I got while we were gone.  That is another story…for another day.

Happy Monday, Dirt Roaders!  If you have an ostrich farm…you may borrow my new basket to gather eggs.  No…not really. 😉  I can tell you where to buy your own though!

Ostrich egg basket.

I love these “burlap” pillows with Granny Ruby’s quilt. 🙂

I couldn’t resist a little extra editing on this one. 🙂
