New Find for Baby

Less than a month ago some friends of ours had a sweet baby girl. When we went over to visit them, and meet her, I was impressed by this adorable basket that they kept her in while she slept. It almost looked like a Vera Bradley purse in bassinet form. I loved it. It was so practical, and completely adorable. They used it as a sort of play pen, than they could carry around from room to room, or simply as a safe-haven while they had dinner and she slept.

So, I made a mental note: Register for one of those cute basket things.

Well, before I could get to registering for one, I found this beautiful thing at a resale shop here in Charlotte. I thought about it for a day, and then decided to it was too good to pass up.

Can I just say I am beyond excitement thinking about putting my sweet baby in this beautiful thing?


The same basket is selling new on Amazon for around $50, so the fact that I got a hardly used one for less than half (paid $20) also makes me smile. 

I think it will be just perfect for some precious newborn shots, too.


  1. AWWWWWWW! SO sweet! I love it!

  2. What a great purchase! My mom always calls those "Moses Baskets".

  3. "Moses Baskets"! I like it. That's a great name for them!

  4. Ashlee, that is so beautiful. I love it.

    My father-in-law built a sailboat cradle for Caleb's sister when she first got pregnant, and now he's asking us what we want him to make for our family cradle when the time comes. I'm still trying to decide. :-)


  5. Hannah, that cradle sounds like a wonderful keepsake to have! I would have a very hard time deciding, too!
