GOODIES TO DECORATE WITH

I hope your holiday was wonderful and all wishes were granted.
I wanted to share with you a few goodies that I received and a new item I made from an old item.
Can anyone guess what this is??
Well I am using it as a candle holder, it is so wonderful. I love, love the ember colors.
Have you figured it out yet?
Well it is a light fixture, part of an old vintage fan/light we had in the livingroom. This light/fan fixture came with the home when we purchased it.
Of course it sits upside down with the candle inside.
What do you think? Figgy and hubby purchased these vintage picnic baskets on line and at an antique store for me.
This smaller one is from Figgy, it is made of tin.
I can't wait to decorate with it. What do you think I will do??
This one here Hubby purchased, this one is made of wood. It is quite large (can pack alot of lunch in here). I am still thinking of what it is I want to do with this one. Lots of different ideas floating around in my mind. How well do you know me, what do you think I will do with these baskets?
Leave a comment letting me know what you think I will be up to.
I am linking up to the following, and I would like to thank all hostess's for having the parties;

Well I love your new to you picnic baskets. I have mine stacked up and they are an end table in my library next to my reading chair. They store are supplies for my 9 year old - although I think it's time to work on cleaning those out....

Happy New Year!
