There is only one thing that gets my heart rate up faster than the first blooms of spring...the first yard sales of spring!! I bought this old galvanzed bucket last year and finally got around to painting it this cool green color. It was missing something so I called on Barb (my artsy sister) and look how she jazzed it up! I can just see it with a big fat pink geranium sitting in it.
Just this past Saturday I thought I'd check the paper to see if any sales were advertised. I thought it would be a long shot-- but there were a couple. I bought this (heavy) concrete pitcher at an estate sale. I paid $18 (which is a bit much for me) but I really thought it was pretty. Actually I'm sure it was worth it; it is in great shape. I already have it sitting in its place of honor by my white arbor.
