Time for a giveaway!

Yay, who doesn’t love something for nothing? Well not quite nothing. You have to leave me a comment, but more of that later.


One of the catch phrases I hear the most from my clients is “I don’t have enough storage.” You too? There’s always things that need to find a home and what better place than one of these gorgeous market baskets from The Market Basket Co.

Not just practical, they are very stylish too with all the beautiful women of France taking them to the markets or the beach or riding around on their velo (that’s French for bicycle). The good news is, you don’t have to go to France to buy one. They are available here in Australia as a result of Lindy McLeod seeing the many uses of them in France and deciding to bring them home. The baskets are individually handmade in Morocco using traditional methods and techniques and made from strips of woven palm leaves from a species of date palm. They are finished with Moroccan leather handles either short or long.


The lovely people at The Market Basket Co have offered us one to giveaway just in time for Mother’s Day. They would make the perfect gift. To win, all you have to do is leave a comment and tell us what you would store in your basket in the home. As I have too many magazines, I think mine would sit in the family room and be laden with magazines.


The names of those who leave a comment will go in the draw for the Rosie basket which is valued at $65 and comes with a rose material drawstring closure and red leather handles. Winner will be drawn on 30 April and announced here on 1 May.

Rosie Basket The Market Basket Co. RRP $65.00

  1. I would sit the basket on my dining room floor and pop a jar in the bottom with a beautiful bright bunch of flowers coming out of it.

  2. This beautiful basket would live at my front door and inside you would find my picnic rug, wine glasses, plates and cutlery. It would be packed and ready to hit the road. Grab a bottle of wine and some nibbles and celebrate this gorgeous weather!

  3. Oh how lovely Belinda.Yes maybe time for an upgrade. Good luck!

  6. The basket is perfect for my almost ready-to-pick heirloom rhubarb crop. What better way to transport the harvest from my veggie garden to the kitchen in preparation for my homemade rhubarb crumble. Stylish and delicious!

  7. I need this basket for my laundry. If my beautiful daughters see it, then maybe they will place their laundry in there and keep the surroundings tidy too because it is too pretty to ignore, like a normal laundry basket, I have found a happy home for this basket.
