This is a pickers bucket that i picked up at an estate auction this fall. I was going to use it for a tree base, but the bottom is canvas and I couldnt get the tree to stand up.

After decorating all those trees for the shop, I have finally gotten around to decorating my home! This is a picker's bucket that I picked up at an estate auction this fall. I simply put some evergreens, some ribbon, a jingle bell and some old ice skates with it and now I have a nice decoration for my fireplace hearth!

Thanks for sharing!

Love the pickers bucket and those skates make me sick that I didn't keep mine as a kid. Love the red with the galvanized metal and it looks great with the colors in your hearth. Very festive!!!!!
