Small Town Living at Its Best

For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall have everlasting life.

Thrifty Thursday HAK Baskets

My Thrifty Thursday post this week is what I used to make gift baskets for a dinner party. I bought baskets after Christmas, regular price $5.00.
It says 90% off! So, that was 50 cents each for these baskets!I bought 8 of them, then prayed I would have enough. They are about 5x5x5, and have a holiday lid and handle on them. The wicker is red striped/natural, or green striped/natural.
They were full of sugar cookies, and were so darn cute! And I had plenty of opportunity to get rid of the cookies, since I have grandchildren!
I took a teeny weeny little screw driver and removed the lids - saving them for a Christmas project sometime!
So, off to my scraps container, where I found a TON of lace! Free!
I just love the little flowers on this lace.
I have to do my hot glue work on the kitchen counter. It won't be long before I have a beautiful room to do my crafts/sewing/computer work in. I'll show that when it's done.
I like the lace around the top, it just fits!
Each basket (50 cents) holds a pair of garden gloves ($1), a garden shovel ($1), a peat pot !8/$1), a package of seeds (3/$1), and some M&M's ($2). I put Easter grass (free)in the bottom to help hold everything in place.
Below are the baskets, all set for my dinner party gifts! You can find them at Tablescape Thursday. I had a free coupon for printed invitations, and got 10 of them with garden flowers on them, with matching envelopes.
I am enjoying a wonderful spring Thrifty Thursday and hope you are too! More thrifty ideas can be found at the below address:
