I had hoped to sell the china to pay for the passports! Back in the days when department stores would refund cash for duplicate wedding gifts, we traded our new china for an emergency fund.
My mom bought it back from a yard sale.
The yard sale baskets hold folded table linens. I thought the wicker looked a little stark, so I softened the edges with two delicate place mats.
You can often use less-than-perfect linens to line baskets without showing any of the spots or holes.
