{beautiful details: paint-dipped baskets}

. . . and while we're on the topic of wicker, a chance to flip through the latest issue of martha stewart living on the weekend over coffee, and absolutely fell in love with these summer-perfect paint-dipped wicker baskets -- whether dipped or brushed on, such a simple and simply wonderful way to give market and beach baskets a stylish update . . .

I just love these. Trust Martha to throw us a rope. They look so updated and somehow new, while still retaining the wicker feel.

What a fun way to revive an old basket! I love this idea and think it would look so cute to have a bunch of paint-dipped baskets above the counters in my kitchen. ON IT!

Saw this and loved it... what a simple concept, but so lovely. It's times like this when I wonder 'why didn't I think of that?'

Many Filipinos make such baskets beautifully. They are even made into handbags which are a hit on tourists.

Yes, this was definitely one of my favorite images from this month's MSL. Makes me want to take a trip to Nice and stock up on those baskets in the Vieille Ville along the shore!

A persona can never have too many beautiful baskets, and these are just lovely! I love the dipped layer to them—a black bottom would be chic as well, I believe :)

Roséline, your posts are so lovely, and always a surprise—one never knows what you might come across next to share...

It's a little embarrassing how excited these wicker baskets make me. They're beautiful just on their own, but imagine them filled with fragrant flowers or fresh fruits and vegetables from the local farmers' market - heavenly.
