Unique, inexpensive, decorating tips...

Hey all. I sort of have a dilema, but at the same time my dilema didn't justify dedicating an entire post to it. So, I thought I would turn it into a creative outlet for us all to display photographs, tell about, and give ideas for unique, yet affordable, decorating tips.

My tip for the day... I shop at Goodwill. I am fortunate enough to live in a small town of only 7k people and the nearest Goodwill outside of our town is about 30 miles away. So people are sort of left with no choice but to donate to the one just down the street from me and I always find great stuff.

One great thing I found was a small scalloped wire haning basket. It's cute... but not quite large enough to put a plant in. The gaps between the wires are large so it's not suitable for smaller items. Any ideas on what I can use it for? I have it hanging from a hook under a cabinet just next to my planning desk in the kitchen.

Thx ladies

In the kitchen hang near the sink put in sponge.dish detergent, SOS
