We've been working our fingers to the bone doing yard work.
This past weekend was so gorgeous, we spent the entire two days outside
and I have been doing some work myself the last couple days as well.
I wanted to show you something I picked up over the weekend at Home Depot.
They had onion plants for sale and they were in these cute crates.
I asked an employee what they do with the crates when they're empty and
he said they throw them away. So of course I asked if I could take one
and he said I could - he only looked at me a little bit strangely. : )
The red lettering is what really caught my eye.
I started thinking of things I could do with it.
It's not terribly sturdy so you couldn't use it for anything heavy
but I think it's cute enough just on its own.
It has a little wire latch if you want it to stay closed as well.
You could use it indoors or out.
It looks kind of charming with a potted plant sitting inside.
If you have a potting bench, it would work well for
storing small gardening tools.
So many possibilities.
Of course the best part is that it was free.
|Kitty loves to be outside with me when I'm working.|
So the moral of the story is that if you're at Home Depot
and you spot one of these cuties, it could be yours simply for asking.
The second moral of the story is that if you have teenagers and they are with you,
don't even think about it - they tend to frown on this type of behavior! ) :
Thanks a bunch for visiting!
