Fall Textures

I have been playing this morning with some wicker baskets that I bought at the auction a couple of months ago.    I love to work with textures so I gathered up all different kinds......wicker, lace, ribbon, thread....
I tied lace around some of the baskets...
filled some of them with big spools of thread...

added some rolls of lace....
a  key or two...
and just had fun playing with the different textures.
You can see the baskets in the photo on the right with some of the other treasures that I bought that day at the auction.  As I remember, I think I paid $6 for all the baskets.
I decided to put all the baskets on a tall shelf cabinet thingy (etagere) that sits on a small wall between the bath and a spare bedroom.

H painted this dark shelf white for me...so much better!

This wall has been empty since we painted the hall back in January.   I can't believe I have left that wall empty so long! 

Now this end of the hallway is freshened up for fall!
