Well, who doesn't love a good old funeral basket, right? I fell in love with these old baskets a few years ago and have been collecting them right & left ever since. Our house was becoming sort of over run with them, so I've had to say good-bye to a few, but have kept my favs.
I can't remember now, when or where I picked up my 1st one. I don't even remember which one was my 1st one, but here are a few pics of my favorite ones!
Most of these basket will have a metal or paper mache insert that would have held a soaked sponge to keep the flowers fresh. If a basket is missing the insert, like the one here to the right, you can just fill it with shredded craft paper. I love old sea shells & old photos, so I use my funeral baskets a lot to display them.
