Went Junking!

I found this planter at the Salvation Army for 80¢ and thought it was cute. For that price I didn't even mind that there was dirt in it! The planter is about 4.5" tall and 6" wide. Doubt it's vintage-says Made in Taiwan and has a scanner sticker $4.99, but has a good feel to it. I love the planters with a bottle brush tree and vintage ornaments glued to them, but with the opening of the sack being 3"x3.5" that would require a big tree! So for now I'll just tuck him away and hope to come up with a craft or fun idea before the holidays.
Any ideas?

My tip: Keep a list of "want to work on" or "need to find" items and re-read it on the first of each month,
or maybe looking at it when you go out shopping for fun isn't a bad idea either:@).

Have a happy day!

  8. I am another one who would fill it with goodies or gift boxes all wrapped. That's really cute! I did just a little junkin' last week but didn't see any good Christmas goodies.

  9. I'm sure you will find the perfect use for your little Santa. Now is the time of year to pick up little treasures like that. They all disappear when we get close to the holidays.

  10. The crochet post is a delight...especially The End. The Chicken Bombs are gorgeous.
    I would need time, too, to come up with inspiration for the lil Santa, but I think it will be terrific!

  14. What a cute find, Lynn! It does have a very vintage feel. I think, since it looks like Santa's sack, I would wrap up little boxes and fill the area up with them. Maybe you could find some other miniature things to add.
