Old Rusty Buckets

What to do with an old rusty bucket????  Why add some doilies, lace, burlap and bling of course!

I lined the inside with some old lace curtain fabric using decoupage.  These have been selling in my booth mostly to brides or wedding planners.

Love the fabric label on this one.  It would be cute in a laundry room.

 Gizzie says hi to everybody.  She's been really busy bird watching through the screened in porch.
 That's it for today.  Remember to get out there and make, create, photograph, write, paint, craft, repurpose and find something wonderful and share it with us!!
