Sunshine on a Stem

I was recently shopping at Ross and came across this precious tin bucket with handles for the low price of $6.99.   Loved the colors and the worn look of the tin and since sunflowers are my favorite flower, this baby came home with me!

In this close up you can see the watering can.

Here you can see the wording “Sunshine on a stem” and some random numbers.

While I loved the tin as is, I felt that it needed something.    I  spent hours creating this floral arrangement  got lucky and found this pre-made sunflower arrangement at Old Time Pottery for $14.99. 

Ta Da!    It fit perfectly!

The final touch was the addition of the bunny on a stick that came from Pier One.

I am so happy with the way it turned out….it really makes me smile and I think it looks pretty darn good for under $25.

Thank you for stopping by and visiting.    I will be partying with these awesome, talented women and hope that you will visit them also.

I really need that bucket. So so cute. Perfect with the flowers. I saw a blue one from Hobby Lobby on someone's blog yesterday. I am going on the hunt. Thanks for joining WUW.

Greetings from Southern California

I believe God put me on earth to accomplish a certain number of things and I will live until my work is done. Visiting blogs is high on my list of things to do. I recently read there are about 20 million blogs worldwide. Right now I am so far behind I don't think I will ever die!

God bless you and have a nice day :-)
