A crafty tea basket with Fortnum and Mason

What a treat. I recently received this gorgeous tea basket hamper from Fortnum and Mason - who are the quintessential British company, founded in 1707 and still located in London's famous Piccadilly. Specialising in fine teas, jams and hampers (amongst many other fine things) F&M sent me this delightful hamper and asked me what I might use it for once I'd devoured all the delicious goodies inside ... 

Well before I get into that have a peak at what you might find inside. They make a variety of baskets for different tastes - some are wine-based, some are food-based and they vary in size and price. This is the F&M tea basket ...  which as you can see comes with a selection of 3 fine teas, a selection of jams, a F&M breakfast mug and (my favourite thing) a tea strainer! To be honest I've never been gifted a hamper before and I felt like a kid at a birthday party, delving my hand in and pulling out various bits and bobs! (what was that game called?) anyway, I can see the appeal of hampers now.

So once I'd emptied my hamper I gave it some thought .... it was too small to be a bed for Ralphy :-) so I was torn between making it my foraging basket (which it would be SO ideal for) or it would be my favourite wool stash basket! So it now sits, in pride of place by my sofa housing my favourite yarns. My winter knits thank you kindly Fortnum & Mason! What would you use your for??
