Hi there! What a wonderful givaway! I think I might stand it up on its side and put old books in it!?! :) Hope you have a lovely week! xo Holly

Sue said...

Love the old locker baskets, I've got a couple myself. If I was to add an additional locker basket to my "stuff", I think I would get some more orchid plants to put in the old basket! Have a great day, and I still can't get over how fast Gracie is growing!

Take care,
Sue

Brynwood Needleworks said...

I love the old wire baskets! I'd use them for fabrics. Thanks for entering my name in your fabulous drawing! I'll link up on my FB page, too!

Hi Kate! Hope you got my emails ;-) what a fantastic giveaway!!! There's nothing better than coral and locker baskets! I currently have one locker basket filled with shells. I'd like to fill another with coral/driftwood and the other maybe with washcloths and pretty soaps. I like Sue's idea about an orchid, that would be beautiful as well. You can't go wrong with this giveaway... I think it's my favorite ever!

Brynwood Needleworks said...

Yup...I posted your giveaway link on my FB page!

Alabaster Rose Designs said...

OOOHHHH!!! Please count me in!!! I have been dying for some coral and have always wanted a vintage locker basket!!
I would fill the locker basket with my vintage French tea towels. Or some great sponges and bath products for the bathroom.
Thanks so much for the opportunity Kate!!
Hope you have a beautiful week!
Sincerely,
Melinda

DeeDee said...

I will use this for my project basket.. which will hold my current projects supplies.. so it will go everywhere I go.... thanks for the chance...the drift wood will look so lovely in my guest bathroom...

felicia said...

I started to buy a locket basket Saturday and left it sitting and was so disappointed when I got home. I would use it for my husband to place his wallet, keys, etc. in when he comes in the door. I will post your giveaway on my facebook page as well.

Amber said...

Ooh! I love those Kate! Hmm... I would use one in the boys bathroom for rolled towels... or on my coffee table with a fern in it... or tipped on its side for the counter in the kitchen for my favorite cookbooks. I am going to post a link on my blog right now and announce it on FB. :)

Vintage Market Place said...

i have always had a special place in my heart for these locker baskets...when I was little our swimming pool used these to store our things in and then would give us the numbered safety pin to wear on our swimsuit to claim our goods after a day of swimming. Last summer I went back to my hometown pool and they still had towers and towers of the baskets but they don't use them anymore. I wanted to smuggle them out in my tote bag, lol
I think these baskets would showcase my yarn balls perfectly ;)

Meg S said...

This is so pretty! I'm thinking I'd start by putting plants in, but I'd probably change it up all the time.

cestMoi Sandy said...

It may not sound very "Dior", but since I already have one of those I would love to use it (if I win of course) to hang on the wall (read bottom of basket screwed to wall, top of basket looking into room) in my boys room and put funky boyish items in it.
Maybe a plane or boat they made of lego's in it.
Or put their books in it.

Thanks for the give away.

Sandy

Stacey Steimle said...

I LOVE vintage lockers. Right now I have two that hold my socks. If I had two more they could hold my .... frillies, LOL !!

Linda @ Itsy Bits And Pieces said...

OH I would love to win! I can think of so many ways to use these, but think I would use them for towels!

Linda @ Itsy Bits And Pieces said...

I have posted this on my Itsy Bits And Pieces Facebook page, too!

Michele @ The Nest at Finch Rest said...

Kate,

Your giveaway is awesome.

Gracie is gorgeous (like like her Momma.)

I don't have FB (boo) but please consider me for the drawing - loooooove that stuff!

In fact, this sounds way too copy-cat and not very unique, but honestly? I would fill it with coral and driftwood! Or possibly moss balls or magazines........

Thank you, keeping my fingers crossed, Gracie! Thanks for helpin!!

Sandi @ The Primitive Skate said...

What an awesome Giveaway! I LOVE the baskets! I would use them in my Bathroom for towels!

sandraallen260@centurytel.net

notme said...

I've been following your blog for several months. Love your style!

I'd love to win your giveaway....several reasons....living in the heartland does not give easy access to beachy items. I've long admired the coral you decorate with.

The baskets.....oh my! Organize kitchen office area, houseplant, winter gear in entryway, school supplies...endless possibilities.

Thank you for offering the wonderful giveaway!

Lolo @ The Adventures of Stig and Lolo said...

You are so generous!! I would love to say that I would put something cool and fun in them (like the coral!) but honestly, I have been on the hunt for 2 more for my hall linen closet because I LOVE putting linens in them :) My linen closet has antique glass uppers, and I adore the peek of the vintage iron basket with linens that you can see just a hint of thru the glass :) Thanks for the chance sweetie XOX

Wendy said...

What a fun giveaway! Your blog is lovely and so inspiring. I would use one for my lavender pillows and the other for decorating magazines. :)

Polly said...

WOW Kate! What a generous giveaway! I love your style so I would feel honored to have a piece of Dior Style in my home!!

I know I already told you on FB, but the Gracie Girl is adorable!! Beautiful just like you!

xo

Polly

Polly said...

It's on my facebook! Oh, and I forgot to say what I would fill the locker baskets with! I'm thinking office supplies!!

jennifer said...

I would fill them with my cookbooks and more driftwood

dwatson4036 said...

I think i would use mine in the bathroom as well....filling it with towels, tp, and grasses with shells...that would fit in perfect with my newly remodeled bath!

Courtney {Honeycomb Creative Co.} said...

I love it! I would fill the locker baskets with tea towels...I've been looking for baskets like this to store our linens in. these would be perfect! Thanks so much for the giveaway!

Courtney {Honeycomb Creative Co.} said...

Anne said...

Adore these and that Gracie is a stunner! Thank you so much for the fabulous giveaway, mine would totally be filled with books and art supplies :) Lovely!

Jennifer @ Decorated Chaos said...

I am entering for the giveaway. I would use the basket to display guest towels in our bathroom, or I could see it holding pumpkins and pinecones in the fall next to our fireplace.

{ Kristen } said...

Kate!! What a wonderful giveaway! I would LOVE these locker baskets for display on my dining room cabinet! They look like the perfect size. I would fill them with vintage linens, I think. And, the coral and driftwood would be perfect in the master bathroom with the sand dollars we collected on the beach on our honeymoon! Thanks for hosting such a fun giveaway!

Sharon said...

Oh my gosh ! You had me at vintage metal locker baskets ! There is no end to what I could put in these baskets , vintage linens comes to mind first . Great giveaway !

Janice Zimmer said...

I think these would be cute anywhere in our house - linens in a bathroom or even kitchen. Maybe even in our office - magazines or notepads. The possibilities are endless!

Thanks for the contest. Posting to FB.

dogwalker said...

Fresh lavender. I have 2 clay pots filled with beautiful lavender. That basket would hold them nicely.

Rea said...

I can't believe you are giving these away. A few weeks ago, I was thinking that I wish I could come across some of these. Being the crafter that I am, I would love to use them to store all of my yarn and shabby ribbons. I love using old and vintage things to store my crafts.

WhiteWhispers2u said...

G'day, Lil Miss Gracie is beautiful! Looks like her Mommy too...

I would fill that locker full of French Kitchen towels and the driftwood I would place in a large glass jar I have.Yummy!

~Cheers Kim xox

Tricia @ Vintage No. 35 said...

I would actually use the baskets to store pool balls or books for the kids. The driftwood I would display on my bookshelf.

Kristin @ Simply Klassic Home said...

I would add the baskets to my collection on my hutch!

PS I LOVE that black stool!!!

aimee said...

Wow what a great giveaway i love wire baskets and i love coral i would fill it with sea shells to go with my beachy theme in my lounge xxx

Tardevil said...

So happy someone posted on Facebook so I found your blog. Love the 'coastal pictures'. I'd use a basket like that to store old colorful books, but love the driftwood and coral, too. We can't find driftwood anymore on the beaches I go to on the east coast.

FRENCH LAUNDRY said...

I would no doubt fill it with wallpaper...or fabric, cause that's just how I roll. I hope I win!

Hugs,
Judy

jayne said...

I would fill it with my collection of vintage lace, love the contrast of the feminine lace and utilitarian basket.
thanks for the chance to win!

Lisa @ Fern Creek Cottage said...

Is it really boring to fill the baskets with magazines? Maybe. Hmmmm, I could fill them with potatoes and onions and put them in my pantry. But then I'd only get to see them when I open up my pantry door. I could put them in my sons's room and fill them with baseballs, but I want them for myself. I'll have to keep thinking about this. :)

AubreyLaine said...

I would fill them w/ decorative items :)

Pamela said...

Great giveaway. I always look for vintage locker baskets when I am out thrifting. I would fill it with my way-ward napkins so they could stay together in one place for a change.

Kathleen Lane said...

Oh, my, Kate, I love your style! And I would love to have the baskets w/coral & driftwood. Such an expression of generosity from you ... I would be proud to display them in my studio: perhaps with tube paints, brushes, or maybe cloth selected especially for a tied rag wreath of "beach colors" ... aqua, sand, tan, sky blue, teal, etc. ... also seen on Pinterest!
If your beautiful Gracie selects my name, I will be very delighted ... Kathleen

Beth said...

Recycled Rita said...

Oh my gosh Kate! What a great giveaway! I would put in our buffet and vary it's fillings- natural elements like the coral and driftwood and then maybe teacups and saucers, or whatever strikes me at the moment! karen....

Roxanne Reinhart said...

I agree with everyone else. I love your giveaway. I would us them in my bath and display your lovely driftwood and coral. I love coral as much as you. I would also add some of my Sanibel Seashells. Hope you are feeling well. Thank you very much.

trash talk said...

You know Kate, it's a funny thing. When I find locker baskets, I always feel like I have to sell 'em...but, if I were to receive one from you, that would be a whole different ball of wax. I would feel absolutely no guilt in the world keeping it and filling it with memories of you and others I've met through blogging. Does that make me an old sentimental fool? I don't care.
This is so generous of you, but then you are a generous, giving, big hearted gal.
XO
Deb
P.S. Are you sure you wouldn't like to tuck Miss Gracie in with a basket? I'd take her in a heartbeat!
P.P.S. Now I gotta figure out how to share on FB!

trash talk said...

Aha...did it!
Deb

Lori @ Katies Rose Cottage Designs said...

Kate ~ Ohhhh girl what an awesome giveaway!!! I love locker baskets and I love your added touch!

Marsha @ Tattered Chick said...

Where have I been?!?!? In the, what, 4, 5 years I've been blogging I have never been to your blog?!?!? I found you through Deb of Talking Trash fame and I'm so glad I did! I am now a follower!

Oh, my,locker baskets!!! So many uses, perhaps I would use it to hold towels, doggie toys, my stash of lace, or my growing collection of vintage utensils, dishes, magazines, I could go on and on . . .

Thank you for the opportunity to toss my name in the hat!

The Feathered Nest said...

Ohmygoodness!! I LOVE locker baskets!! I would fill ONE with tons of vintage lace so I could see it easily and display it in my studio, the other would be filled with wonderful elements to use in my assemblages, it's always so good to have what you love VISIBLE and near you so you can be inspired....Kate, thank you so much for offering such a wonderful giveaway! C'mon Gracie...I'm keepin' my fingers crossed! xxoo, Dawn

blhitchcock901 said...

I want, I want, I want! I would fill them with my vintage linen and put them on my kitchen counter! I'm also looking to make a laundry/folding room. They would be great to hold my detergent, dryer sheets.

blhitchcock901 said...

Mystica said...

Hi!
I think I would like to put flameless candles of different heights in the basket and place it on top of my 100 year old armoir in my bedroom. I need something romantic in there!
Thanks,
Shannon

Ming said...

I'd fill it with large spheres and have it rest upon my end table. Love this blog and ur ideas.

Brenda@ **Dragonflys and Stars** said...

For now, I would probably put some jars with fresh flowers or hydrangeas in it and set it on my dining room table. Thanks!
