MY FINDS for FLOWERS - Using Repurposed Rustic Reused Reclaimed Stuff
Since my 15 minutes of fame on ABC's Good Afternoon America show, many of you know that I am a fan of using trash, estate sale & flea market finds in and around my house. Here are some of the outside "around my house" thingie-ma-boppers.
The red wagon was a great find for $5 at an estate sale. All I did was drill several holes at the bottom for drainage. I think my neighbors think I am a bit nuts for drilling a cute little vintage wagon.
A great place for my front porch flowers. I change things around as the seasons change.
Love my bucket filled with mini petunias. And yup, I drilled a few holes at the bottom of the bucket. See my drilling technique in the last photo ;)
A bright red toolbox from an estate sale is another way of me adding color to my front porch. Drill those holes! A fabulous picture below ;)
Had to have this vintage wheelbarrow - a fun place for some wave petunias. I just tipped my clay pot of flowers on it's side.
I bought this carriage frame a few years ago at an estate sale not really knowing what I would ever do with it. I am too old for more kids, and too young for grandkids! I finally made a decision ;)
I like the look of purple flowers next to galvanized stuff, maybe it's just me LOL ... this fit the picture! Holes drilled of course.
My wonderful picture of me showing you how I drill the holes! Camera in one hand, drill in the other - kind of awkward but hopefully it gives you the idea.
