Open Post: Hosted By Martha Stewart’s Basket House
Candy Spelling and that broke-ass “wrapping room” of hers in the former Spelling Manor have nothing on Martha Stewart’s standalone house just for her basket collection! Even though Martha couldn’t get her hands on a proper margarita glass to drink out of at a public panel about a week back, she DOES have a huge collection of baskets of all shapes, sizes, and purposes; and they’re so well taken care of that she posted about the new metal roof she just had installed on their residence.
Martha casually dropped an Instagram post about the renovation and cleaning of what she pretentiously called her “little basket house,” (I mean, it’s a shed, though) as one does. via Today:
Over the weekend, the queen of organized crafts revealed she’d recently done some renovations with an Instagram post shared on April 15.
“My little basket house needed a new roof,” she explained at the top of the post, which featured an image of her standing in a shed and holding up a set of baskets while surrounded by plenty more.
Most people in the comments were impressed and intrigued.
“Can I move in?” one user commented on the post facetiously. “I’m told I’m a basket case.”
“Wonderful about the new awesome roof,” another replied. “I’m stuck on there being a basket house and (there) being so many baskets to warrant their own home. I love it so much.”
“Wait. A house just for her baskets?” yet another fan wrote. “This is Martha Deluxxxxx. Only she would have something like that.”
So she followed it up with another post about her collection:
She must’ve thought that “basket containment renovation” was a prevalent problem to be solved, so she even wrote a blog post about it, making sure to begin by explaining to us poor, simple morons what a basket is. via The Martha Blog:
Basketry is made from pliable materials that bend and form shape. Some examples include pine, straw, willow, various grasses, threads, and fine wooden splints. I have hundreds of baskets in my collection – some are rare and antique, some are vintage, and some are more contemporary. Last week, I had the timeworn cedar roof of the Basket House replaced with a longer-lasting standing seam snap lock roof system. Afterward, the structure was cleaned and all the baskets were re-organized and returned.
And we got a better glimpse of the exterior:
The basket house is cool, but she needs to give the people what they really want: a tutorial on how she ventilates her reclaimed clapboard blunt barn!
