This is my wash tub dressed for winter! I went to the woods and cut some pine branches and red twigs, added the star and snowflake and now it greets my guests. (cant believe we dont have enough snow yet to cover the cords from the snowflake!)
Santa will help with greeting the guests for the holidays.
The snowshoe hanging to the left of santa came from the Christmas sale at Snowman Hill-Thanks Krista, I love it. I will remove the Merry Christmas after the holidays and leave the snowshoe there until spring-which we all know in Minnesota is a long time from now!

This is my first post thanks to Krista at Snowman Hill who said I should join the rest of the junkers at Junkmaarket Style (went to her Christmas Sale the day after Thanksgiving-what a treat!). The wash tub was a gift from my sister Wendy, thanks to her husband Mark for thinking of me and diving in that dumpster-what a guy! This is where it will spend the winter on the front walk, whose knows where it will go in the spring, maybe the deck filled with herbs?

Just put a rubber plug in the bottom and fill it with ice and you've got a beverage cooler. We went to a family picnic reunion and the hostess had a vintage wringer wash machine sitting in her yard under a tree filled with ice and all the water cooling on it. Very fun and resourceful!
Welcome to the site. I'm glad you found it, it is a blast!!!

SnowmanHill writes: Welcome Diane! I'm so happy I could talk you into joining. It's so fun to make new junking friends and see what everyone else is doing. I love your wash tub. Sooo cute! I really like the huge snowflake as well. It was so nice to meet you at my sale. I hope to get up to your house and see all the wonderful things you've done too. P.S. The snowshoe looks darling in your display. Take care-Krista Posted: 3:39 pm on December 4th

We are all big fans of Krista's snowshoe wall hangings, so you are one lucky lady. She posted one a few weeks ago for us to see. It looks like it may be just a tad different from the one you purchased. http://www.junkmarketstyle.com/item/3757/snowshoe-wall-hanging-with-old-mitten

Thank you for sharing your ideas with us! I can't wait to see more of your posts.
