    I would put a lovely philodendron in this great basket and display it on my kitchen counter.

    Baskets!!…. Baskets come in so many shapes and sizes. I adore them and collect them because of versital uses…virtual anywhere in our homes. As would be Ms. Williams woven cachepot would be. Naturally perfect to display my phalaenopsis orchid on my entry table. Or, at my work desk to hold scissors, stationary, and office supplies. In my bath I can see this used to hold various hair styling tools neatly. Mostly, I imagine using in my kitchen area. Sit near the stove to hold all my vintage kitchen tools. To sit in my windowsill filled with herbs or a mini lemon tree…as a wine chiller. To hold my vintage aprons and tea towels collections. Or, near the coffee/beverage bar to hold unique napkins, vintage straws and whimsical stirrers. In the panty for organization. Or, simply to display bright yellow lemons or shiny red apples. During the winter collect fern, mini pumpkins and pine ones. Christmas I would display colorful shiny, vintage Christmas ornaments. Finally in the summer piles of seashells. I love baskets.

    A lovely spathiphyllum that I received when my Mother died 12 years ago.

    I have beautiful orchids in pots that I can display in this container throughout the year.

    There are so many choices for this beautiful woven cache pot. I might use it for my summer ferns that stay nice and warm inside durning the winter months. I can also see it as a great decorative holding place for using in my kitchen, family room, bath,…actually anywhere I want to keep beautiful and special keepsakes on hand for everyone including me to enjoy!

    I Would Give It To My Sister, Carol And Niece Madeleine In Orlando. Perfect For A Pineapple Plant or A Mini Palm Tree. They Both Need It ! We Three Love Ballard Designs. My Sister, Carol Has The Armoire For Her Computer. Thank You

    Since my rescue cat takes it upon herself to “prune” any plant I bring home, I would use it to corral my yarn stash on in process projects that I keep by the couch. It would save me the trip upstairs to grab the next skein!

    I would donate it to my church to put the Sunday flowers in….that way more people can enjoy it

    My new cachepot would be located in our north facing sun room. The sunlight is perfect for any plant that is placed there. It would be a wonderful addition to our home. Thank you for the possibility of more greenery in our home.

    I would keep money in it! It’s a Cachepot after all.

    Although I don’t know what plant I’d select, I’d love to have plant for my office as I have a windowsill that overlooks the courtyard so it would have a home with a great view!

    I would transplant a cutting from my Angelwing Begonia into this lovely pot. It was my aunt’s plant that I bought at her estate auction. It’s gotten very large and needs to be split.

    August 19, 2015 at 4:21 pm
  15. Martha DeMarco

    THis is beautiful, I would put it by my front door with a low maintanence plant. As much as I love plants, I don’t seem to have or keep a green thumb!

    August 19, 2015 at 3:07 pm
  16. Debbie Dabbs

    Oh, love this chic container. I would use for a lovely birds nest fern, then for little hand towels when company visits. And why not use the liner for drink bottles for outdoor dining! This little beauty has so many uses!

    Perfect for my outside tropical plant to become my inside plant for the fall/winter season. Tropical plants can live outside here for the summer, but they have to come inside to continue thriving, until they get to go back outside. I call them my traveling plants – in and out – which makes them happy plants. With the right location inside they can last for a very long time. Just repot them with new potting soil and water as needed.

    This is weird, but I would put a citronella plant in it. We move a lot and I don’t want to plant it in the ground and not be able to use its benefits so I need something that’s mobile to be able to take it with us when we go!

    I would have to get a peace lily for that beautiful cachepot. Growing up, my grandmother and mother always had a peace lily in the house. I was always so intrigued by their beauty. Having one on display in my own home would give me a constant reminder of those wonderful women and re-live a little piece of childhood.

  20. Lynn Welch

    I would place this cachepot in my guest bathroom and fill it with beautiful rolled up washcloths — decorative and practical!

    August 19, 2015 at 1:14 pm
  21. Lauren Timmons

    I think this would be a great addition on my fireplace to store wood! Love this cachepot!

    August 19, 2015 at 12:59 pm

    I’d fill this woven baseket with a Christmas cactus that was passed down from my grandma. It’s small size would fit nicely in the closet, which is my secret to helping the Christmas cactus bloom!

    I have been looking for the perfect planter for my palm in my bedroom. I think this would go perfect with my tropical theme.

    August 19, 2015 at 12:44 pm
  24. Sharon K

    I keep a couple amaryllis bulbs inside year round – this would be the PERFECT container for these beautiful bulbs. Great texture and color contrast that would be a gorgeous combination in our hearth room. Thanks for the opporuntiy!

    I have an Ivy plant, the only plant that has survived from my sister’s funeral 4 years ago, in it. I have tried different pots, but have not found a special one that suits it yet.

    My mother in law’s tongue plant. (Sansevieria trifasciata)
    I always thought that name was funny, but now that I am a mother-in-law…….Not!

    The basket/planter would be perfect for my desert rose plant that is currently blooming on my screen porch. I must bring it in during cold weather and it looks sad in the winter when I cut it back. The basket would make it happier to reside in my kitchen until warm weather arrives again.

    This would be the perfect size to hold the video games controllers that I am forever putting up! I put them in the drawer, and they take them out. And leave them out – and usually leave the drawer open. Yes, this lovely cachepot is the perfect size for the job, and would make a lovely decorative addition to the den.

    I have a Peace Lily that I had had since my husband’s grandmother passed away over 25 years ago. It has been through two moves with us and has suffered through some neglect. Not that I am retired and have time to care for my plants, it looks better than ever. That plant would look fabulous in this cachepot and would continue to remind us of a very special person.

    Definitely in my entryway with a tall decorative plant. The brown and beige twine matches the runner I have there now.

    August 19, 2015 at 10:45 am
  31. Claire

    I’m thinking that inserting a bucket/liner and adding ice would turn this into a gorgeously casual Champagne chiller!

    August 19, 2015 at 10:39 am
  32. Lori Jo Smith

    Definately a cat friendly plant, maybe catnip.

    August 19, 2015 at 10:33 am
  33. Crystal Tatum

    I would fill this beauty with succulents or use it as a display container for rolled-up hand towels in the guest bath.

    August 19, 2015 at 10:22 am
  34. Mona Thompson

    I like the fern that is pictured in the basket. It would be an excuse to go shopping and look for the perfect plant. 🙂

    August 19, 2015 at 10:13 am
  35. Vicki Hopper

    I would use it to hold magazines since I usually kill plants.

    August 19, 2015 at 9:58 am
  36. clmdukes

    I would place it on the counter top in my guest bath and fill it with travel size toiletries.

    August 19, 2015 at 9:29 am
  37. Meg S

    Definitely a plant! Would love lovely in my living room.

    August 19, 2015 at 9:26 am
  38. Karen Sherman

    I try to salvage as many plants as I can from the flower garden during the colder months so many are brought inside. I can see my beautiful asparagus fern donning this woven basket and basking in winter’s sunlight inside my south facing great room here in the End of Rainbow Valley.Hope this basket can be its new home.
