More Fun Finds

Hi, everyone!  I'm continuing to show you the fun treasures that I scored last Thursday and Friday in Columbus.  Some of these items came from the Country Living Fair, and some from the other shops that we hit during our shopping bonanza!  So here goes...I've been wanting one of these for awhile.  I've seen them called feed cups, or grain buckets.  I just think they're cool!  I got this one at Heritage Square Antique Mall.
Not sure what these are, but I thought they were SO cute, and fit in with my little bowling pin collection.  I got them from Polly at Georgie Emerson.
This cool bucket was also from Polly's shop.  Love the castors!  I put it beside the fireplace with some old maps in it (also from Polly)-I thought when it gets cooler, it would be a fun way to store some firewood.
This old crate came from Country Living and I love its rustic, imperfect charm!
 I just threw some dried hydrangeas in it, which I also just bought (I need to arrange them better-ha!) and placed the arrangement in the center of my dining room table.
Also from Country Living...this little divided drawer.
...and this old bicycle basket to hold magazines...
This fun little canteen came from the antique mall...
I've hung it over the shoe rack in the hallway.

I thought this rack was really unusual.  I filled it with some other goodies that I got on this shopping trip (old bingo cards, a wooden weight, and lavender from my friend's yard.)

And of course, the word that sums it all up...
Love it! :)   Well, that's most of my finds.  I got a few other things, but these are the ones that I've gotten placed (at least temporarily) in my house, and have gotten pictures of!  Thanks for stopping by and hanging in with me...have a fantastic week!
