Another Vintage Vignette!!
The picnic basket on the bottom is from Bob's family. Many years ago, I admired it and Bob's mother surprised me with it as a Christmas present! The top basket was made by a local basket maker. I love the green bowl as it was used daily in my grandmother's kitchen, and the little milk pitcher was a gift from a friend. A friend also gave me the hand-painted red tole tray to add to my collection.

Thanks for stopping by,
