Some Pickin' Treasures

For 3 weeks my husband and I took off from California and went pickin' in 13 states.  It was so much fun.  I am amazed how friendly people are and so willing to invite strangers in their home to look through their stuff!   I do have to say, my favorite was in Kentucky for their 400 Mile Garage Sale.   They have this every year along Hwy 68.

I found so many things, but for now I am going to share with you some cute garden decorations.  I picked up the items during my pickin' and just bought the flowers at home.   These ideas are all under $10, including the flowers.

I bought a vintage rusty chicken feed tray.  I put some .25 cents plates in it, filled with dirt and planted some annual flowers.  It is hung on my fence to my chicken coop.
 

 This is a vintage chicken waterer.  I planted flowers along the water tub area and hung it on a rusty old hanger.


I am hooking up today with Beverly at How Sweet the Sound for Pink Saturday.
