Urns and Buckets

I have a thing for urns and ice buckets….especially in silver …..

Thrift shops have yielded most of mine….

Sometimes they have pretty details….

urns 4

And I don’t care if they’re all tarnished either.

This really big one was an especially nice find….in pewter…

urns 5

I mean…seriously, is there any better container for flowers?

urn 7

Not by a longshot……..

Unless you want to put them on the porch…

Then, an enamel bucket is good…..

    I love silver urns, too. (I painted one last year and now regret it.)

  9. No you cannot go wrong with urns and buckets and you’ve reminded me I have a fabulous one under my deck! The hydrangeas are gorgeous! Did you see the urn Tina did with the moss in it? So pretty as well!

  12. I love silver and the patina you get with it. It always adds such character.

  13. Silver buckets filled with hydrangeas? I’m in, I love the look!!

  14. I love urns and buckets too. They are great for decorating in any season. Love the pewter one. Very different.
