Seasonal Toys and Books


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.


  1. i am all about holiday traditions, but halloween has always been a tough one. such a cute idea!

  2. I do the same things with books -- pack them up with holiday decorations so they are more special when you pull them out each year... I'm really enjoying all the ideas on your blog!
