These are new to me also. I like the changes you made with the third basket.

I have never ever seen a basket with a stork attached; so cute.
I have ended up with several old and unique napkin holders, do you have any?


Every time I see something stork related, I think of my pal Magpie. I'll bet you are one of a very few who collect them.

Hope you are having fun in SF!



This is a really unique collection. I have never seen a single one EVER so totally new to me. Thank you for sharing!


I've never seen any of those baskets with storks attached to them! Love what you did with the last one. So much cuter with your special touch and it looks like it came that way!
Wow.....Number 200!!!
Can't wait to see it :-)


Along with everyone else I have never seen stork baskets. You know I have a love for storks (even more these days as my only child is going to have a baby in May-YIPPY SKIPPY!!!!)I have collected small stork planters for years-do ya have any of those??? as well as vintage welcome baby planters. Have fun and be safe on your travels in the nex couple weeks!! (excited to see what you come home with ;-D)


Wow! I have never seen these before; your re-do is so wonderful! Gives it the vintage authenticity it deserves.

Great collection. I'm glad you fixed up the last one. Hope you're having a great time.


I've never seen or heard of these before - lovely! Collection #200 - whodathunkit?

Hope you escaped from Alcatraz yesterday.......


Count me in with everyone else who has never seen these before. They are adorable, and, of course, look so much better after a Magpie Ethel treatment.

I enjoy making retro style aprons using vintage fabric, and I was wondering . . . would you please "show me your collection of vintage aprons."


Wow! This was a new one for me too. They look wonderful together. What a grand little collection!
