Closet Organization and Lucketts

I am in the process of organizing a closet that we have really never used. I purchased some baskets in various sizes from Lowe's. I found they had the best deal for the size of what I was getting. The largest basket I purchased was around $9. I purchased three large and six medium sized baskets. I would have purchased more but I bought all that they had.

A few weeks ago I purchased this small wooden plaque from Michaels. I did not have a plan for it, but decided to use it to label my baskets.  This means I will be heading to Michaels soon to buy plenty more.  I painted it with some leftover paint from a previous project. After it was dry I added some vinyl lettering and attached it to the basket with some jute twine.  

Now, I only have to make about 11 more for the rest of the baskets I'll need in the closet.  
It is certainly a start towards keeping things organized, and especially for sheets which never seem to stay on a shelf very long. 

On another note, yesterday we went to Lucketts, VA for the Lucketts Market. I took a few pictures on my phone. I did get to meet up with some of the Hometalk ladies for a little bit as well. That was very cool!  I also was able to get Marian from Miss Mustard Seed to sign a copy of her book for me. She was so very sweet.  This year we were in and out pretty quickly with Wynn tagging along, but we did get a lot of ideas and saw a lot of wonderful furniture pieces.  

Wynn loved the popcorn and thought that the port-o-pots were beautiful.  That was her first experience seeing one and she loved them. The people walking by listening to her yell "these are so beautiful and just my size, Mommy" certainly got a kick out of that one.

Wynn insisted that we buy this to wash our dogs in.  Unfortunately I don't think it would hold 175 lbs worth of pups.
 I really loved all the goodies that you could find everywhere you looked.
These stools from Ekster Antiques were so pretty!
 Wynn really wanted one of these metal W's. I think that she has quite a few w's already.

Hope you have a great one!
