Olive Baskets

 What is it about this simple slatted basket that catches my eye every time I see one?  I'm not sure, but for some reason I'm drawn to them. They are big and rustic and different. I like different.  Maybe it's the possibility that my past Calabrian relatives over in Italy used these buckets to gather olives from their orchards and rinse them off at the end of the day and I'm somehow connected to this past lifestyle. Ok, probably not, but I'm drawn to them anyway. :)




Look what I found at Target yesterday!  It's not an original but it will work just the same.
