Woven Caddy

Scored this woven caddy/basket/whatchamacallit at HomeGoods for three bones, tres buckskins, a trio of beans. Not literal buckskins...eww. I only wish I could use lima beans. And bones? That is a little hardcore. But just a little.

Anyhoo...I got me a thingamajig at HomeGoods. Hated the little curly cue doomonkeys...so I bent them down outta sight with my giant guns. Guns = biceps (not boobs mom! sorry inside joke!) So here was the photo prior to me altering my purchase:


And afterwards I brainstormed how to use this poohamahickey. And I came up with silverware caddy. Just popped a dishtowel in with some silverware and instantly have a outdoor picnic utensil holder.


Or even placing it on a casual buffet for a bit of height and a little texture. (silverware down of course)


So what would you use this for? Anyone thinking candycane holder for Christmas caroling? Or what about hanging it in an extra bedroom with a bottle of chilled water for guests? I need brainstormers to throw out some ideas. Not actual stormy craniums....you know what I mean :)

Perfect for those skinny breadsticks no one can resist.

Love it! Looks like a wine caddy..but I love the silverware idea...you could also do plasticware for picnics and bbq's.

You guys have no clue how much I love these ideas...seriously.

It gives me ammo when the boyfriend asks "Why the heck do we need THAT?!"

heehee!

Cute and a great deal.

I'd love to put a jar down in there and some fresh blooms. Love the idea of something different than glass for a vase.

Pop your pencils, pens, scissors, and other office supplies in there for a bit of woven eye candy on the ol' desktop.

Pick some flowers and put them in there and hang it on a door handle.

I am amazed at the ideas that people come up with! That is just great. I don't have that kind of eye yet, that's why I read blogs!

Here's one for your hubby: put it on your coffee table and stick the remote in it. That way you always know where it is. :)

line it with a paper napkin, cook up some bacon and put the bacon strips in there. that way, you can tote your bacon around the house with you wherever you go! :o)
