I added a few items to my galvanized container collection on the armoire in our family room.
Michael's had these numbered pots for $8.95 (Canadian $) EACH but on another trip I noticed them again, this time in the clearance section for 90% off. For 95 cents each I decided to pick up numbers 0-9.
I love the little burlap squares with painted on numbers.I
I love naturals mixed with the rustic galvanized pieces and rusty barn stars so when I saw this wheat sheaf at the grocery store floral shop, marked down after Thanksgiving (Cdn.) from $14.95 to $3.49 I couldn't resist it. I have it placed in my vintage galvanized sap bucket (a yard sale find) but I may try to rearrange things a bit and see if the wheat sheaf will stand beside some pieces.
The tall galvanized wire basket is filled with pinecones that I like to use almost year round for texture.
The old milk bottles and large mason jar are gathered in a short galvanized bucket ($4 at a craft sale.) The galvanized watering can was a yard sale find a few years ago for $1 and I love that it still has the sprinkler head.
The numbered pots might move to a different spot because I think they are blocking too much of the larger pieces. Don't laugh but I decided not to paint the top of the armoire blue and at the time I didn't realize it would be noticeable in photos. Oops.
My favourite part about this vignette is that I can see it from the front door, from the family room on the right and the kitchen of the left. Now I am looking for an old grain scoop because a collection is never quite finished ;)
Our son is with his Dairy club at The 90th Royal Agricultural Fair in Toronto this weekend and we are looking forward to visiting too. Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you enjoy your weekend.
Hanging out at these great parties...
