... bucket, that is!
I found two original vintage sap buckets (the real deal) at V.V. the other day, they're quite large measuring 13 inches tall. I wasn't sure what to do with them but the pale pink paint that covered them had to go. It just wasn't the right pink.
So here goes...
All dressed up for the holidays!
I painted it an antique white, added a tulle handle and trimmed it with crocheted lace and some of those vintage mercury beads I salvaged from my feather tree.
I also modge-podged a page of antique sheet music with an appropriate title and added some of my fav glittered letters. I didn't want to go too Christmas-y so I chose the word HOPE as that has become my moniker of sorts. We could all use a little hope, don't you think?
Real glass glitter frames the sheet music and gives it that festive look. Because I have two, this one will end up in my shop.
So hubby and I have not one, but two parties to attend tonight. Go figure, we have no plans for the entire holiday season, and these two parties have to fall on the same night. I went to my hairdresser's this morning for a quick trim and had him curl my hair just for fun. Big mistake. Big! Let's just put it this way - Shirley Temple's got nothin' on me!
