Have You Ever Had A Wood Bucket Fall Apart?

A quick stencil (23..my favorite #) and a vintage hook...How easy is that?  Can you think of something to hang from this?
I got a little fancy here by adding a drawer pull and a curtain ring to hold notes.  On the bottom is a door latch for hanging stuff!
Ive also been having lots of fun scanning and copying vintage images to make tags.
Here Ive added a vintage bottle with wire, and made a wire handle.  I call this a root starter where you can just add water and cuttings to root, or fresh flowers look great too!

Who hasn't had a vintage wooden bucket fall apart?  Forget trying to put them back together.  Here I've repurposed the slats in several different ways.

Clickart writes: Hi! THANKS for your nice comments about our flood damage (funny how the wedding made everything OK...for better or worse, right?). We are actually going to celebrate our anniversaries on each first Friday in May from now on since we met up on a First Friday Art Walk in a nearby town; we'll have a different date every year!. I look forward to keeping everyone posted on what we make of our little setback and we've already made some progress. I also look forward to seeing what you have in store for us, too!
