Found Another One

I told you, I find these old trash cans all the time.

Found this pretty one last week at an estate sale for $1.  Drilled holes in the bottom, sprayed with acrylic sealer and added plants.


Laurie Jackson wrote a nice article for the about thrifted garden containers.  Check it out here.  She included my idea about the trashcans in her article.  Thanks Laurie :->

That gave me the idea to start a Flickr group for Thrifted Garden Junk.  If you got any great thrifted finds that you have put to good use in your garden, please pop over to Flickr and join the group.

  2. It’s a small world. I like your post on Garden Junk, and I went to to read there too. I just started writting for the examiner, for Maine-it’s a small world! Thanks for sharing.


  3. This is gorgeous! I visited Laurie’s Examiner article, she has some lovely things! I’m also a writer for the Examiner but in New York City. I do budget crafting which this would also be a great idea for. πŸ™‚ I have a few of your posts book marked for when I need some inspiration. πŸ™‚ If you’d like to visit me at the Examiner here is my profile: I also have a blog! πŸ™‚ Just in case you have a free moment lol


  4. I must have missed these before – that’s a great idea! (And now I’m sorry I sold those trash cans at my yard sale last summer….)


  5. Suzy, thank you for the mention! And how funny that some of your readers are writing for, too! I’m going to go see your Flickr group now!
