The Multiple Uses of a Trug

My parents gave us a gorgeous basket as an Engagement gift.  It sits on the china cabinet in our conservatory, near the front door.

Last year, I used it every week to collect vegetables from their garden.

The harvest from our small unit garden this week.

This year, I have discovered that it is a very versatile basket indeed.

This week?  Folded laundry.  it fits Munchkin's gear really well!

Perched atop my old dolls pram, with the peg bucket beside it they are at just the right height!
Last week?  Pegs.

This past winter?  The assortment of 'things we really need to give back to various people and keep forgetting about!'

I wonder what use I will find for it next?  Do you have any of those multi-use tools around your place that you just love to use for one thing then another, and another?

Hmmm - that question has me thinking... I love it when a gift becomes so practical.
