My mom recently aquired this ugly pumpkin basket for free and passed it on to me (because I love stuff like this). I decided it made a fun basket to keep in the living room to store our Halloween and then Thanksgiving toys and books. Starting last year, I began storing these items with the holiday decorations and I think it will make an exciting tradition each holiday to unpack the toys and books. Now I need to find a big ugly Santa basket.
Note: Don't worry, we have two copies of Where the Wild Things Are. One will remain out year round.
