~A Bit of Inspiration~

I bought a couple new lavander plants a couple weeks ago, but hadn't had time to get them planted.  I also found one of these old canvas buckets while junking and decided to put my lanander in it until I can get it planted in the ground.  These buckets are fun for so many things and this one has the letter "US" stamped on it so I'm assuming it was used in the military.  To find more inspiring posts and ideas, hop on over to Debra's blog Common Ground for her VIF party.  I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.  Enjoy! xoxo K.

  26. It made with only one material and because of it looks very simple and stylish. The belt of bag is very beautiful. I like the old canvas bucket.
