The Rusty Bucket

Would you throw out a rusty old bucket....I. don't. think. so!!!!
 Especially if you add burlap ribbon and pretty rosettes!!!

And some brown transferware dishes!!!
Bet you would never throw this away!  
Now it's on it's way to our booth to see if someone else loves rusty old buckets.  I'm bettin they do!


I'm joining the party at Coastal Charm's Nifty Thrifty Tuesdays!

I love your old rusty bucket! It got Sissie's magic touch and now it's beautiful!! I am staring at an old rusty bucket sitting right on living room floor. Never sold at the one market I did it's sitting in a rustic red wooden tray with jute handles...that didn't sell on Etsy...go figure! I NEED to do something cute like you did! You are inspiring me!!!

Wouldn't do away with my old bucket for anything. Great uses! Love your blog. Found you while reading Bucket of Burlap. Yes, as you said there, 40 is young. 60 even looks young from 53. My how the years flash. I'm glad my hope is built on nothing less than Jesus blood and righteousness. Hope you'll visit my blog and follow me.

Cutest rusty bucket ever in the world! I love buckets! I swear..., i think if i found an old beat up tennis shoe on the side of the road, and gave it to you,
you could make it cute!
