I found this great big old wire basket at a warehouse junk sale for a dollar. It just happened to fit perfectly in a small space in my work room as a shelf. The carved wooden bottle was another find that I just had to have. Its beautiful all by itself, but a few beads just gave it a little  somem - somem!
The shelf provided a safe place to display the end piece of an old produce crate, and some other goodies that Id had put away. With 3 dogs in the house, anything wood becomes a chew toy if Im not real careful!

An old wire basket becomes the perfect shelf for a neglected corner of my work room!
