quick little project

a few months back, i found these pails at michael's, clearanced to 5 dollars each.  finally, i bought some stencils and painted numbers on...and placed them on top of my oh-so-bare kitchen cabinet.







and then i snipped off a hydrangea and found a glass baby bottle that i still had in the cupboard



it's funny how many hydrangeas and peonies i see around blogland - they're beloved by so many people, it seems.  and it's easy to see why...



this tote was just laying around here after i rescued it from the thrift store - and i finally decided to use it for my gardening supplies



i forgot to use my seed packet holders when i planted our square foot garden; love these little things!

I love what you did with the pails! I love hydrangeas, and thanks to my brown thumb, I have artificial ones in the house. Wish I could grow them in south FL!
Thanks for the lovely images.

Those pails were not $5. What a steal!
I love your pictures of your hydrangeas!

Mary, what a great idea with the buckets. I had a set at TJ's all picked out, and ended up putting them back. Now I'm wishing I got them. ;-) Hydrangeas are my fav, unfortunately the ones in my yard are not looking so lovely.
