The Aesthete's Alphabet - W is for Wire

Why might well ask! I could have chosen "wallpaper" as my blog friend Carolyn from Sweet Chaos Home suggested. (I feel that Carolyn and I are kindred spirits. She is also the lone feminine voice in her male dominated household of husband and 4 sons). I thought of choosing "wisteria" which are in bloom here at the moment and look magnificent. I considered "window seats" but then remembered I have done a post on them before. I nearly chose " wine" because ...... I just need it sometimes (Carolyn will understand). I settled on "wire" because for some or other reason, I seem to have collected loads of pictures featuring wire baskets and I was running out of time.

Useful for storage in an office, kitchen, bathroom or almost anywhere, great for picking herbs or fresh flowers, perfect for gift hampers or they can just be left empty as a decorative feature.Whatever shape or size, whether rustic and vintage or sleek and contemporary, I think every household could do with a few. Take your pick.....



There might be a bit of stalling before my next post ....... X is for ......because I'm finding it eXtremely difficult to think of something! 

Till then
