This is a little fancy for a hearth basket. Probably should have left off the topknot. The handle has one of my unusual wraps. In some ways it reminds me of a spider web. Use to find them inside the fireplace. ( If you didn’t use it to often!)
I’m not sure if people would have trouble filling if with logs or fat wood. It could be used for a floral display or to keep some nice comfy throws to sit by the fire with. Or even a place for a small dog to take a nap in. It’s 2′ x 1′ x 14″ H. Large enough for quite a few things. What do you think?
