Chocolate covered spoons - You will need plastic
spoons (clear, silver or gold are nice for the holidays), small cellophane
bags, twist ties or ribbon for sealing bags, a small microwavable bowl, and
the chocolate of your choice (see below for options). Start by warming the
chocolate in the microwavable bowl, in 30 second intervals until chocolate is
completely melted. You could use a good melting and candy chocolate such as
Ghirardelli, or a combination of chocolate chips and white almond bark. Dip the
plastic spoons, one at a time into the chocolate far enough to completely
cover the bowl of the spoon. Set aside on wax paper lined cookie sheet. Cool
or chill in fridge to harden. Wrap in cello bags and tie off with ribbon.
Place them in mug, chocolate end up with packets of coffee (or cocoa).
Snowman Soup -
Print the following poem on card
stock or colored paper and cut out. Hole punch one corner and attach to mug

weather drawing near, You'll need to warm the spirit. So here's a little

cane). Add hot water and sip it slow, it's sure to do the trick."
Brownies in a Mug - Prepare your favorite brownie

- 3/4 full. Bake until toothpick inserted in middle comes out clean. Cool

tissue paper or cellophane and ribbon/raffia.
To package all of the gift mugs, use "fluff"

WROUGHT IRON LITTLE BIN BASKETS
I believe these suggestions are from past issues of The Vine, I had copied
them and saved in another spreadsheet. So if you recognize these posts as yours, don't be offended, I just found them great ideas and saved them!
I have the Little Bin Organizer. Instead of buying the baskets for it, I
put my note pal basket on the bottom, business card basket and parsley basket
on the top. They kind of wobble on it because it's an open bottom on the
shelves. I think the organizer is adorable. Small, but fits perfectly on a
desk, counter top, etc. I didn't wan to pay extra money for the bin baskets
since I could use baskets I already have with little problem.
I use it on my kitchen counter with CD's to listen to while I work, in top
bin and wrapping supplies (tape, stapler, stamps, etc.) in bottom.
Put your everyday paper napkins in the Bottom Bin and in the top Bin
Basket. your LB Creamer/Sugar bowl and a S&P shaker or toothpick/sweetener set.
Fits nicely, looks beautiful.
My neighbor bought my other L. Bin and
substitutes other baskets like the
small berry and sm. covered round dish. She just got the top basket and next
month will get bottom one.
Please put that combo out at your Open House. You will be surprised at
how many LOVE it. I promoted it when it first came out to use on the counter
with fresh fruit in the top and packaged snacks/wrapped candy on the bottom.
Great center for children to grab a snack after school. Grandmas need to
have it for the same purpose for the grandkids. Ends kids climbing to get
I promoted it to be used on bathroom counter for
hand towels and scented
soaps. and small lotions center.
I promoted it to be used in den/office mounted on wall near phone to keep
notepaper, etc. for when you are on the phone.
I love the Bins and wrought iron piece. Bought one for my daughter who
has little counter space in her condo.
Again, put it out at Open Houses ... took mine to a recruits OH and she
sold 2-3 that night.
I don't have the lids, don't think I'll buy them. I don't think they'd be
useful for my needs.
As a pharmacist I have sold many of these. Bottom is for all your meds.
Top is perfect for your vitamin/mineral supplements. Saves loads of space on
counters, while keeping everything at hand. You know the old adage "out of
site, out of mind". I would recommend you buy one and tell everyone
(including your accountant) that your "pharmacist" recommended it.
Here is the list that I lost. I love it! Becky Cornforth (bless her heart)
had a copy of it and sent it to me!. After the list is how and why I use it.
Hope you enjoy it

Bright colored socks in kid's room look decorative even when they

In the baby's room, keep diapers handy.
You're always on the go -- take a Bread Basket in your CAR. It fits
between the seats of your minivan and will
hold your sunglasses, CD's or tapes, and tissues.
Now, here are some more ideas.
Fill with gold Hershey Kisses for a 50th anniversary celebration, or
silver Kisses for 25th.
For family or friends, provide fixings for a cozy movie night at home

Here's a bonus idea -- if you want an over-the-edge liner for your
Bread Basket, use a pantry liner.

MEDIUM MARKET BASKET USES
Here is a list of uses that was created for the Founder's Basket, but it will
work now too!
I am sorry I don't know who to give credit to. I think I will change the "S"
one to Sunday school uses or "C" for church uses, depending on who I mail it
to. Great way to inspire hostesses for the Bonus. Carolyn Hash, B.A.
Medium Market ABC's
Use your Medium Market Basket in any room in the house, from the kitchen for
potatoes & onions to the bath for tub toys to the family room for fireplace
kindling to the laundry room for keeping unmatched socks
In the morning fill the basket with diapers, wipes, clothing changes, toys,
favorite books, etc. to keep you from running up and down the steps all day
Great for coloring books, drawing paper. Use with the Pantry Basket on top
for crayons, markers, colored pencils. Or use to store your craft paints,
ribbons, brushes, glue gun, etc.
Wonderful to fill in the evening with the next day's errands - mail, banking,
prescriptions, grocery lists, etc. Carry it with you in the car and as you go
through your day, drop in all those little things that you picked up. Take in
the house and leave on the counter until things are quiet, go through and
distribute items, put in the next day's doings. A portable in/out basket.
During the warmer months, your Medium Market Basket looks wonderful in front
of the fireplace with an arrangement of seasonal flowers. During the colder
months, fill with pinecones and a string of mini lights for a warm glow.
Holds file folders for monthly bill paying, taxes, school papers, "tickle
Hate those plastic baskets in the stores? Buy too much when you use a
cart? Shop in style. Use your Medium Market Basket to carry your milk, eggs,
bread, cookies, all those things you just "run in" to get. Good for the
environment and no slippery plastic bags to mess with.
Make yourself a "Handy Hanna" basket. Store screwdrivers, hammer, pliers,
flashlight, scissors, wrenches, picture hangers, etc. so that when you need a
tool you don't have to dig through his tool box.
Doorbell ring? Mother-in-law call to say she's dropping by? Scoop all that
counter clutter into your Medium Market Basket and POOF! No more clutter. Also
great for keeping the coffee table clutter hidden, scoop clutter into basket,
set basket under coffee table. POOF! No more clutter.
Pack with cleaning supplies and carry everything you need all in one place.
No more return trips to the supply closet to get a forgotten supply. Work
smarter not harder.
Keep bread, rolls, and buns all in one place. Great lunch packing center,
with cookies, snack packs, chips, fruit, and sandwich bags for easy "kid
access". Keep bags of cereal and oatmeal "kid reachable" for quick morning
Makes it easy to lug those library books, videos, tapes, & puzzles back and
forth. If you keep items in basket when finished with them, it's easy to find
those books, videos, tapes, & puzzles when it's time to return them.
Keep child's first hair cut, lost tooth, mothers' journal, baby book, school
pictures, birthday cards, their artwork, etc. in here. Don't keep a journal?
Jot down date and cute thing child said or did today, tuck in basket. Someday
you'll have a wonderful trip down memory lane.
Needles & Notions
Wonderful basket for keeping hand work all together. Keeps floss, needles,
scissors, directions, and quilting supplies together. Going to be in the car
for awhile? Just grab your basket and you have everything you need to continue
Carry your lunch, magazine, book, umbrella, make-up refresher kit, dress
shoes, lunchtime errands, etc. all in style.
Carry everything you need for a quick picnic for you and the kids while on
warm day errands. On a chilly winter evening, light the fireplace and pack a
romantic picnic for two.
Have a special place just for you? Keep inspirational books, journal, pen &
paper, potpourri, candles, anything that calms you in your Medium Market
Basket. Can easily be taken with you to your favorite quiet quarters whether it
is in a bubble filled tub, a corner of your bedroom, in the garden, or on the
Rest & Relaxation
Fill with bubble baths, soothing CD\DVDs, tapes, pampering creams, powder
& lotions, for those R&R tub times.
Pack your Medium Market with sunscreen, a good book, some munchies, water
bottle, sunglasses, towel, and head for the beach or local pool.
Great for storing/toting kid's action figures, dolls, cars, trucks, blocks,
zoo animals, toy soldiers, Legos, and anything else the kids play with.
Tired of those little things piled on the steps? Place your Medium Market
Basket at the bottom of the steps, during the day drop in those items that
belong upstairs and in the evening grab the basket and away you go. In the
morning bring it down with
the items that need to be downstairs. One Basket, One Trip!
In the bathroom use for extra toilet paper, magazines, washcloths, hand
towels. In the kid's room use to keep bedtime books or keep their socks & undies where they can reach them.
Tired of searching for the hose, tights, knee-highs, slips and bras that are
shoved in back of the drawer? Keep these women's wear items in your Medium
Market Basket to keep them handier and neater.
Keep your workout videos, weights, and equipment all together
keep them in a basket.
You work hard, you deserve it, you want it, You go girl!
Great resting spot for the Beanie Babies and other stuffed animals.
If these aren’t reasons enough………
Then give it as a gift!!!
For our open house we set a formal dining room table and casual kitchen table to
show how well LB dishes look both ways.
In the dining room we used a red and gold theme.
gold fabric placemat
red LB dishes, just the dinner plate
then a ruby colored cut glass salad plate with matching goblet (Wacamaw or
gold organdy napkin (TJ Maxx) was folded and tucked in the goblet
On each plate we had a parsley basket with crochet liner, greens, a red berry pic, a ruby square of cardstock with the guests name in gold lettering and a
pear tie-on tied to the handle. We used the Xmas place setting at the Bee as our
inspiration for the place card baskets
saucers and bread plates
were on the buffet for dessert
This is so gorgeous and surprised many
customers who wouldn't have thought to use
the dishes in such a formal setting.
In the kitchen the theme was blue/white and snowmen. We layered:
a tablecloth of shades of blue and white plaid with snowflakes (Target)
navy blue ceramic chargers (Mikasa)
LB dinner plates / blue
matching blue/white napkins in snowman napkin rings, set on top of each plate
cobalt blue goblets
Frosty Jr. as the
centerpiece with Heartland darning and button baskets (no liners)
SNOWMAN AND USES
I also just finished redecorating our master bath with
Botanical Fields. Home
Depot's Behr paints have a brochure on decorative paint techniques (Faux Finish
Color Selector & Technique Guide) with samples showing what color paint
combinations, glaze, and techniques to use. I sponged on the "rose/taupe" combo
and it's great. There were several color combos that go so well with BF... ( my
first choice was the sage green, but I've heard that's a bad choice in a room
where you put on makeup).. I used the wallpaper border, Grand Botanical shower
curtain and BF liners in all the baskets. I found ceramic leaf shower hooks with
coordinating tumbler, soap dish and towels (Kohl's or Boston Store). This is an
unbelievably easy print and color combination to work with. I love the look.
Several customers at our open house are going to copy it !!
This is from the Great Ideas list they gave us at the Bee.
Snowman in a "chef" hat. Frosty Jr. basket on top with folded napkins,
Frosty basket on bottom with paper plates.
Place button brick on the top rungs and place the small juice pitcher on
top of it. The brick will keep contents hot or cold. 2-quart casserole dish
works great on the bottom Bread plates on top, dinner plates on bottom
Different "Hats" or headbands to showcase different holidays or events
Mexican Fiesta- Two snowmen with
Top shelf: Button Basket and brick with small Mixing Bowl
filled with taco meat (or 1-quart Covered Casserole)
Bottom shelf: 2-quart
Covered Casserole filled with warm tortillas
On Snowman #2
Top Shelf: Button Basket filled with shredded lettuce.
Bottom shelf: Darning Basket and divided Protector filled with the "fixings."
I leave mine out all year, and I have both sizes. I bought the face and hat
sets from Heart of Dresden and absolutely love them!!! They have snowmen,
scarecrows, jack-o-lanterns, and Santa's so far- but I hope more will come later
in the year. Instead of the Frosty baskets, I use the generations baskets with
OTE liners and lids on the snowmen. I used Christmas liners for the holidays,
and am now ordering everyday liners to substitute. That way I don't have the
color accents on the side for the off-season.
I also used the large snowman at a display I set up for our HOH Fundraiser.
I put a silky, short-sleeved blouse on "her" and buttoned it part of the way
down, then tied the tails together under the 1st shelf. I put a pretty
straw hat over the snowman's hat, and tied a coordinated floral napkin around the neck. Then
I displayed the different HOH basket and liner styles on the bottom shelf or
beside the snowman on the table. It really looked cute for our HOH display.
Hope this helps!

One of my first baskets was the Cracker Basket. I use it in my office, and have carried it around to the different places that I have worked. I do drafting, so I leave the basket next to my computer. It holds my drafting pencils, highlighters, drafting brush (fits perfectly), rubber bands, and a small calculator.
I keep the Cracker Basket on my kitchen counter to keep our keys in and any mail that needs sent out. It holds letters perfectly.
In the fall/winter I fill my Cracker Basket with a variety of flavored packets of instant hot chocolate and cappuccino.
Stick in some old-fashioned candy sticks to use as stirrers (peppermint and butter rum are good ones).
I have my basket on my kitchen counter. This looks inviting to anyone stopping by my home.
We keep our Cracker Basket on the table next to my husband's recliner. It is perfect for holding several remote controls as well as an ink pen or two for taking messages during the big game!
One of my clients bought the Cracker Basket w/divided protector to use on her desk to hold diskettes. She said it works great!
I was recently married and my husband and I live in
a very small apartment. I had no where to hang Christmas cards we had received from our family and friends so I placed my Cracker Basket on my buffet table with the cards neatly placed in them. This way I can read them throughout the day!!! It looks great as a centerpiece on my buffet table!
I use it to hold a Small Sugar Bowl, tea bags, equal packets and envelopes of hot cocoa...all I need to add is boiling water, Longaberger mugs and some cream for an easy hot beverage center!
I use the Woodcraft Divider, and I put the Longaberger Sugar Bowl on one side and the creamer on the other side. It fits better without the protector and just a liner.
I use the Cracker Basket w/divider on my kitchen counter. My husband and I each have our own side to hold our keys, cell phones and his wallet.
I use the my Cracker Basket with protector to hold all of the various remote controls in our living room. It keeps them organized and all in one location.
I use the Cracker Basket with divided protectors as my cat's food and water dish. Wet food in one side and water in the other side. Everybody shakes their heads when they walk into my house and see it. Someone said "Now that's a Yuppie cat!"
(I use the Bread Basket with 2 medium berry protectors for a dog's food and water dish.)
I used several cracker protectors in my bathroom drawers to neatly organize the nail clippers that usually get lost in the bottom of the drawer, Q-tips & combs. I also used Cracker protectors to organize combs/brushes & toothpaste/toothbrushes. It works great!
I keep the Cracker Basket on my kitchen counter and it holds my large salt & pepper shakers, vitamins, and seasoning salt for easy access. I have three in my cupboard for separating my silverware. (spoons, forks, knives).
My sister stores her vitamins in it and keeps it on the bathroom counter top. Looks cute!
It sits on my coffee table with the remotes in it, at least we always know where they are.
I use my Cracker Basket to hold cassettes next to my CD and cassette player.

The BEST BRIDAL GIFT!! I wrap the basket and keep the cards
in the protector on the table and ask everyone as they arrive to fill out a
card for the bride! This has been a HIT for both showers. At one of the
showers I had everyone write at the bottom of the card the gift they gave and
the only thing the brides maid has to worry about is making a pretty HAT with
all the bows!!! THEY LOVE THIS GIFT!
In my bathroom I use this basket

This basket holds a TV guide and remote,

IDEAS FOR DESK TOP BASKETS
Small desktop is great in the bathroom - - hold
toothbrushes, toothpaste and dental floss. Small candle crock fits in here
(without protector) beautifully. In the bedroom, on the nightstand it's a
great caddy for my paperback, reading glasses, nail polish bottles and
hand cream. In the kitchen use it on your countertop for storing
scrub brushes, SOS pads, or even your rings as you wash your dishes.
The large desktop can be hung on a wall. Turn it
upside down (tallest side on bottom) and thread a light gauge wire (or even
floral wire) through the weaves on the bottom of the basket and hang it on the
wall. Roll bath towels, face towels, wash rags, etc. for your bathroom. It's
great on the wall just outside your bathroom - - don't forget to slip a bar of
soap in the basket. It a great spot for an emergency bar when you get into
the shower and find that you've been left with only a sliver of soap!
Large desktop is also an awesome dresser
organizer. Use it to corral all of your bottles, creams, makeup, hairspray,
etc. off of your dresser. Telephone books, takeout menus, pens and paper is
great by the phone as well (again, you can hang it on the wall - - upright - -
to save counter space.)

to keep dust-free.
