    I would use that basket for gathering fresh produce from my garden and then get another one for displaying fresh fruit. Love it!

    I’d put my weed in there.

    just kidding. A little vintage SNL humor.

    I love it as a trivet, but it would probably hold potatoes most often.

    I have one, and I love it. It’s always on the counter filled with something. I use mine as a cooling rack for bread (see the website), and to hold hot rolls on the dinner table.

    I’d line it with a flannel fabric swatch and put candy canes in it! For non-holiday uses, it would be the perfect basket for fresh fruit!

    Janet — December 2, 2010 @ 7:07 pm

    I wouldn’t put eggs in it, since I’m a fan of proper refrigeration. Maybe a variety lemons, limes, grapefruit, and oranges. Or peanut butter balls. Yeah, peanut butter balls…

    Pomegranates, clementines and lemons sound like a good filler for the basket.

    Balls of yarn for knitting — I’m sure the cat would love to paw them out!

    Andrea — December 2, 2010 @ 7:33 pm

    For Christmas I would fill it with a bunch of pomegranates to make it festive. In the Fall, it would be really cute with a bunch of mini pumpkins &/or gourds.
