I didn’t want to make yesterday’s post about Springfield too long, so I skipped the “Hey, look what I bought” portion.
But today’s another story.
Hey, look what I bought!
The sap bucket was $5 (dahlia not included). And the metal picnic basket was $15.
One of them bit the dust, so it’s not really attractive to those picky picnic basket collectors. I, on the other hand, found it be be “well loved”.
Neither of these items were bought with the intention of them being used here.
I tossed the dahlia in the bucket to lighten the load when removing things from my car that day. Between groceries, Springfield finds and flowers, my hands were full. When I got to the back porch, I dropped the bucket on the porch and laid the picnic tin on the shelf and took the rest of my groceries inside.
I came back outside with my icy cold Coke Zero and said “This doesn’t look bad”. There they stayed.
I call it accidental decorating.
Some of my best work happens when I don’t use my brain. Not sure what that says about me.
