EGGcellent Easter: Beautiful Baskets for Easter or Home by Sprinkle Me Happy {Review and Giveaway}

I am so thrilled to have been able to review this GORGEOUS basket from Sprinkle Me Happy!  I'm all about anything that has multiple uses, and wanted to find an Easter basket for my little girl that didn't scream "Easter!" and could be functional throughout the year.  This basket is perfect!  It will be beautiful and functional for hunting Easter eggs next weekend, and when all the Easter excitement is over it's going to look just as beautiful on my kitchen table (it just happened to match our kitchen wonderfully!).  Most Easter baskets are pretty much used for...well...Easter and that's about it.  Little egg shaped or bunny baskets, etc. are adorable (don't get me wrong!) but I wanted something different this year.  As cute as those seasonal baskets are, you are likely going to get a different one next year anyway and this year's will sit in the closet until who knows when.  EG's bunny basket from last year has been sitting at the top of her closet since then!  
So on my quest for the "perfect" Easter baskets I stumbled across these lovely fabric baskets from Sprinkle Me Happy.  
She uses designer fabrics to construct the baskets and, might I add, the construction is superb.  A beautiful print on the outside is accompanied by a coordinating fabric on the inside.  A coordinating bow is also added for a little extra "whimsy".  There are designs to suit anyone's taste, including one with puppies that would be so cute for little boys.  A firm, but soft, stabilizer is added for support and allows the basket to retain it's shape.  The pinched corners also add a nice, finished look. 
 The handle is nice and sturdy and stays up when the basket is sitting on it's own, so that it always looks beautiful.  The size is just
 right also.  It will be the perfect size for EG to carry on her own and collect Easter eggs, and also the perfect size to use in the home.  I just love these little baskets and the only thing I wish is that they came in even more sizes so that I could use them for all of my storage needs (soon to come...right? LOL).

I can think of a GAZILLION uses for these baskets beyond Easter.  They would make great gifts on their own or filled with goodies to make a gift basket (think bridal showers, Mother's Day...).  I'm going to use mine on my kitchen table to hold napkins after 
Easter.  
I seriously thought about using it on my desk at work instead, but I'm afraid it may walk away and I would be very sad if that happened!  They would be awesome in a little girl's room to hold books
, accessories, etc.; your bathroom to hold hand towels (as pictured), lotions, or accessories; or the baby's room to hold diapers, wipes, and other changing essentials (would make them easily portable around the house!).  What can you imagine putting in one of these baskets?

Take a look around Sprinkle Me Happy and I'm sure you will find a basket that tickles your fancy!  While you're there you can check out the other great items she has for sale.  They include adorable chalk boards, towel wraps, and travel rolls.  Thanks to Sprinkle Me Happy for "sprinkling a little happiness" into our home this spring!  For details on how you can receive 20% off of your own purchase, see below.
