~ A Thrifty French Farmhouse Find ~ (A Repost)


As you all probably know I LOVE thrifting
A few of my favorite thriftshops are Goodwill and Value Village


I usually go thrifting a few times a week if I have spare time while running errands etc
I was so excited when I found this vintage zinc flower bucket at Goodwill



And for $1.99 I had to bring it home with me
It is perfect for dried or fresh cut flowers and fits in perfectly with my french farmhouse style
If you've never tried thrifting you should visit a local thriftshop and see what you find


Thanks so much for all of your sweet comments on my bistro chairs in my last post
I hope you are having a wonderful week
Hugs,
Rachel

The bucket is great! I love it! I was just thinking I needed one, then my oldest and dearest bestie brought one to my 40th birthday weekend, with a huge bouquet of amazing flowers! She said I could keep the bucket for a while (she got it when we went to a flea market that Haley's Cottage had a few years ago).....I am so excited!!
Definitely want to get together and will call you soon! ;-)
