Oh! Is it the bottom of a basket? Looks like a fruit basket you see apples in...

Aloha,

Looks like an antique wooden basket. I have a large rectangular one with a handle that I keep my stash of magazines in.

Linda (Nina's Nest) said...

I think it's an antique box to transport an animal - bird, cat? - to the vet. How's that for crazy?! Linda

~Tonja~ said...

A picnic basket maybe....

Good golly, I don't know what it is, but I WANT it. If you picked it out, it can't be bad, right? :)

Mary Ellen said...

Looks like a beautiful vintage fruit crate to me or maybe a chicken coop cake. What a fun giveaway!

vikki said...

Must be a vintage picnic basket.

meeyeehere said...

Well, it is a wooden basket maybe and easter basket?? Not sure but I love old baskets!

Tamra said...

Yep, I'd say fruit crate for sure.

gina3 said...

My first thought was an apple basket for picking apples in an orchard. That may be too obvious so it must be something else. Looks cute whatever it is.

Linda said...

Fun giveaway, Kathleen! I thought it looked like an orchard or berry box basket, too!

Linda said...

I added this to my sidebar, too!

Petite Michelle Louise said...

it's a closeup of a berry picking basket?

Amy Kinser said...

I agree with the others. It looks like a basket of some sort. I actually ws trying to work on an old basket today of mine that was loosening up. It sort of looks like this.

Lou Cinda @ Tattered Hydrangeas said...

Some sort of basket but what kind I have no idea....I am useless!

But I know it is gorgeous!

kathi @ traybella said...

shelia said...

Well, it looks like a basket, but what kind? It looks to sturdy to be a berry basket, too small for an animal basket, maybe a picnic basket, whatever it is I'm sure I'd love to have it! Thanks, shelia

Bonnie said...

It looks like the side of an old basket, but more than that, I cannot tell!

Trisha said...

I am a new follower of your lovely blog!! I think that looks like an apple basket maybe?! Looking forward to see what it is!

~Trisha

she dreams big! said...

Yup, it has gotta be a berry basket! You are so tricky!

she dreams big! said...

I put your pic on my sidebar too!

It's Just Me said...

I'm gonna say a vintage apple (fruit) basket although I'm not the first to answer that. I just bought a apple basket and it has such a similar look to this : )

It's Just Me said...

Kathleen, I've had your button in my sidebar for awhile : )

It's Just Me said...

Elsina said...

I think it's an old fruit basket/crate.

Shanon at Vintage Sparkle Chic said...

A vintage fruit basket, looks like I am not the only one guessing this!

{northern cottage} said...

I'd say it is a vintage picnic basket...with all its beautiful patina!

maid marian said...

It looks like some sort of basket...perhaps a vintage fruit basket or picnic basket. It has a great patina!

Robyn's Nest said...

I scanned to the bottom so I wouldn't be swayed by the other comments...to my eyes it appears to be a two-handled French market basket. Kind of like a picnic basket without a lid.

jewelsinthegarden +: ) said...

Kathleen, a wicker fruit basket was my first thought. I'm anxious to find out, I'm sure we will be surprised. I thought maybe you have it pictured in a room in one of your past posts so I looked and looked but not a hint of such a basket. I did enjoy looking through your early posts though. I posted your giveaway on my blog and added your button. Julie

Henria O. said...

Hmmm....it does look like a basket of sorts! I wonder....

Very nice surprise!

Margo said...

It looks like a basket to me. Maybe with a wire frame and thin bent wood slats? Can't wait to find out. Thanks for the opportunity.

Kathy's Red Door Welcome said...

Could it be a fruit drying basket? I've had your button on my sidebar for quite some time. I love you blog!

Faded Charm said...

Looks like a vintage picnic basket top me. I actually use one of these when we get together for a family reunion in the summer.

Fun giveaway!

Kathleen

FRENCH LAUNDRY said...

Looks like a market basket of some sort.

Thanks for the chance,
Judy

Betsy said...

I didn't cheat and read through the other guesses;-) I think it might be a picnic basket? I'm sure it's an interesting surprise.

mustard seeds said...

My first thought is a picnic basket...maybe because I have a "thing" for picnic baskets.
Sheila

Tammy said...

It looks to me like a rustic basket to me. How fun!
