My love affair with baskets

I have always had a certain kind of love affair with baskets. Wicker or woven baskets in neutral colours, palm leaf baskets in bright colours, cardboard baskets with pretty patterns,et al. They only not make my life much simpler ( It helps address the many many OCD’s that I suffer from:)), make my home look clutter free and makes my shelves look pretty. Not that isn't a bad achievement for an ordinary basket.
Plus everyone at home knows what goes where and the smaller stuff never gets lost.

I've been thinking of getting some new ones for our home. And while doing my little research I came across several interesting ones (btw, I came across this site called and they have the cutest hat boxes and the trendiest storage baskets for the kitchen, living area, laundry…you think of it and they have it)

Letstart with the heart of the house.The kitchen.
 The "make my hear beat faster" egg basket. 
saw one in the shape of a hen at a local grocery shop near my home and have been trying to convince (force) the shopkeeper to sell it to me:))
Love the clean arrangement. 
The potatoes and the onions at my home would be super happy if they had these for their home
 Woven basket heaven or what? The pantry lookso country.
 How about these babies for your laundry?
And these for your garden. Quite an interesting idea to try.
 Awesome colour palette. 
They will even stand as good as art, won't they? Help..I am in basket heaven.
 The cloth ones get my vote too..for magazines
To keep toys...well because  the tiny things using them are so soft and gentle :)
And for storing precious linen or precious jewels
 Love love love the lacework feel they've achieved with plastic.
And by that I don't mean that regular plastic baskets can't look good. 
You'll see what I mean in just a second
 Pretty pretty...didn't I tell you? Its all about arranging them well.
 May be one day someone will make these for my office? Anyone listening?
Power of the tiny. Cute little ones at the dinner table. 
Seriously, can't get any cuter. Makes me want to throw a party right now:)

Which ones do you like? Do you have several at your home too?
