Old and New Buckets Plus a Few Sneak Peeks: Friday's Find #304

Thank God it's thrifty Friday, Friends! Today's fabulous finds are a small assortment of buckets I scored plus a few sneak peeks at how I plan to use them. First, I was happy to score this pair of old buckets with their naturally aged patina at a nearby yard sale...

Last week I shared the first of two posts featuring summer clearance items from Hobby Lobby at 90% off! I'll be sharing the rest of my bargains soon, but for now, I wanted to share several mini buckets I found--the cow pail was .50 and the others were a whopping .10 each! A Hobby Lobby is being built in our small town, and I can't wait!

I promised a few sneak peeks! Here's the larger of the old bucket pair. The smaller one nests inside to hold potted vinca. The "bee's knees" sign was another 50 bargain.

Here's how I used the mini buckets. I'm sure you can sense the theme. ;)

 I'll be featuring both in an upcoming tablescape post next week! Stay tuned!
