Here, all I did was add 2 potted plants to a red wagon for instant character. The wagon has special meaning for me because it was my dad's when he was a little fella back in the 1940's. The old watering can adds a bit more patina to the area.

The old olive bucket adds even more character. I've had this thing all over our house, inside and outside. It's great for flowers in summer, flowering branches in the spring, greenery in the fall, and I've had it inside with throw blankets tucked away in it.
