    I would give it as a gift to my mother filled with chocolate covered strawberries that she loves.

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

    I would gather eggs from the hen house! These are lovely old baskets and I NEED ONE! :)
    great giveaway!

    I would put red apples, a great color for Christmas and a great snack too!

  5. Katy@ThoughtForFood — December 2, 2010 @ 9:16 am

    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!

  8. Janice — December 2, 2010 @ 10:55 am

    I would put it on my kitchen table and put fruit in it!!

  9. Katie @ Smitten in the Mitten — December 2, 2010 @ 11:21 am

    This looks like the perfect basket for those cinnamon scented pine cones over the holidays.

  10. Jeri from WDM — December 2, 2010 @ 11:24 am

    I would put clementines in it. That basket is really cute!

  11. breabella — December 2, 2010 @ 12:27 pm

    Eggs, of course!

  12. DessertForTwo — December 2, 2010 @ 1:57 pm

    These are so cute! I’d put lemons and limes in them on my counter :)

  13. Bridget — December 2, 2010 @ 2:52 pm

    I’d put anything and everything in it! Towels in the guest bath…dyed eggs at Easter…cookies at any time…snacks for my nieces. So many ideas!

  14. Lauren — December 2, 2010 @ 2:56 pm

    These would make a great gift!

  15. sherri lynn — December 2, 2010 @ 3:20 pm

    oooh this is exactly what my kitchen needs! i would put fruit in it

  16. Natalie W. — December 2, 2010 @ 3:23 pm

    I think this little basket would look great on my kitchen table with some cute little oranges or lemons in it! Just a pop of color and citrusy scent!

  17. txcookiemomster — December 2, 2010 @ 5:01 pm

    I would put the fake brown and white eggs and put it on my hutch next to the “Farm Freash Eggs” sign I have.

  18. Amanda Richardson — December 2, 2010 @ 5:40 pm

    Great giveaway! I would put apples and oranges in it.

  19. Carrie — December 2, 2010 @ 6:37 pm

    fruit. and lots of it.

  20. Tara — December 2, 2010 @ 6:56 pm

    COOKIES!!!! Pomegranate White Chocolate Cookies!!

  21. 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…

  22. Amy Mason — December 2, 2010 @ 7:17 pm

    For holidays-colorful ornaments!

  23. Elle Hyson — December 2, 2010 @ 7:19 pm

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

  24. Will — December 2, 2010 @ 7:20 pm

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

  25. 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.

  26. Kayce — December 2, 2010 @ 8:47 pm

    I would use it to put fruit in!

  27. Monica H — December 2, 2010 @ 11:04 pm

    They’re so simple and pretty. I don’t know what I’d put in it, but I want one or three!

  28. beth — December 3, 2010 @ 6:36 am

    Fruit! What a beautiful basket :)
