review {baskets from CSN}

You may remember when I posted about my {unique oppurtunity} to review something from one of the CSN stores...well, the baskets have arrived and I've been putting them to good use!

{my camera wouldn't cooperate, so I didn't get to take any pictures; mine are the baskets above, but with the Leaf Vine liner}

I really love to use baskets - they are so much more attractive than plastic bins! I knew that I'd be using one of these baskets {the smaller one} on my dresser as a catch-all for my perfume, lotion, mousse, combs, ponytail holders, bobby's great to have one place to put all of those things.

These baskets have the fabric liner, which I love. It's especially nice because I don't have to worry about my bobby pins falling through the basket. :)

The smaller basket is plenty large enough for all of my "stuff", about 11x11. The larger basket {about 13x13} doesn't have a job yet, but I know I will find a way to put it to good use!

My only concern about the basket is this:
The seams of the liner show the stitches, like when you sew something right-sides-in and the push the seams too tightly when you turn it right-side-out. Does that make sense? However, I don't think that will be an issue, it's just something I noticed.

Overall, I really likes these baskets. Many thanks to CSN for making this review possible!

**I recieved a set of these baskets for review purpose. I was not compensated in any other way. All opinions are honest and my own.**
