Thank you to Thoughts From Alice for featuring this post!
Happy March! Hope you're having a great weekend! We're getting bombarded with another snow storm (sigh.)
My mom and I were out treasure hunting for the shop last week when she spotted this old dairy creamery can. I can't believe that I had walked right by it and didn't notice it! (That's why it's always great to have a second pair of eyes with you :)
I've seen these before of course, and I've liked them, but one has never grabbed me enough to buy it...until now!
If you've been reading my blog for any length of time, you know that I can't resist anything with rusty, chippy patina! And this has it, plus it's this great cream color!
I also love the removable lid and chain. (I might add flowers to it at some point.)
You can barely see it, but it has the word 'Borden's' stamped onto it, toward the bottom.
I decided to put this on a little table that's right inside our front door.
I forgot that I had recently placed my newly acquired cow on this table too (I just got her and the tray on our trip to Arizona last month which I wrote about here.)
I had to chuckle to myself when I realized that I had a little theme going (hey, what can I say, I'm easily amused!)
Here's a better look at this little sliver of wall. It sits between the front door and the hallway windows.
This old, chippy mirror has been hanging here for awhile. Now it echos the patina of the milk can.
This area is right across from the stairway which you can see reflected here.
I got this adorable burlap rosette adorned with a little bling from my friend Lori's shop and added it to a plain white lamp to jazz it up a little.
I bought this little table a long time ago for a steal. I love it's lines and quirky paint job...the top was left natural and the legs are painted.
On the bottom of the table I stacked some books to add a little interest. The covers have been removed and the spines are stamped. I bought some, and when I needed more, I made some!
The shoe is cute-a tiny child's size.
So that, my friends, is the story of how I channeled my 'inner dairy farmer'-ha!
Guess I shouldn't quit my day job!
Hope that you enjoyed it!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
And if you're being buried by snow, either go outside and build a snowman or stay inside and snuggle by the fire like I am! :)
