Red tote Xmas redo!

Thanks to my friends, Jodi and Kelley, I brought this little red wooden tote home. We spotted it during a local Holiday Open House.  It looks so cute sitting on my kitchen bar filled with miscellaneous Christmas goodies. My kind of decorating....simply fill with items you have around the house!

My kitchen has a red back splash so this little red tote isn't just for the holidays.  I'll have fun using her all year round.  I seem to have a thing for wooden totes, tool boxes and crates these days.  I'd love to find some crates and shelves to finish decorating the walls in my studio. They make displaying artwork and treasures so easy. I'll share my dining room centerpiece (an old wooden toolbox) next!  Until then...thank you for your follows and comments. xoxo

  7. Really cute. I love pieces like this. I have a favorite old "tote" - a wooden Pepsi Cola carrier that at one time held 6 bottles. It was my dad's; folks used to take their own wooden containers to the store in his day.

  13. Vickie,
    your tote is adorable, I know you'll have fun changing it out! I have a thing for boxes, and if they're red, even better! Love using them to decorate for the different seasons and holidays! Looking forward to seeing what you do with the one in dining room!

    PS. thanks for the sweet comment, so glad your Mom was okay! It's very strange how it really doesn't hurt so you don't really think it's serious to it's almost to late! I feel fine and think everything is going to be good, have an echocardiogram on the 31st and hopefully I'll be able to ditch the "canteen"!

  16. Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more
    than just your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and all.
    However think about if you added some great images or video clips to give your posts more, "pop"!
    Your content is excellent but with images and videos, this website
    could certainly be one of the greatest in its field. Very good blog!

  19. That is a brilliant idea. It is a great way to stay organized and keep counters clutter free. It is versatile enough to use all year round instead of just for the holidays. This is very creative and super inspirational.
