Organizing the Basket House

My newly re-roofed Basket House is now also clean and organized.

Basketry is made from pliable materials that bend and form shape. Some examples include pine, straw, willow, various grasses, threads, and fine wooden splints. I have hundreds of baskets in my collection - some are rare and antique, some are vintage, and some are more contemporary. Last week, I had the timeworn cedar roof of the Basket House replaced with a longer-lasting standing seam snap lock roof system. Afterward, the structure was cleaned and all the baskets were re-organized and returned. If you follow my Instagram page @MarthaStewart48, you may have seen my posts showing some of the process.

Here are a few more, enjoy.
