Many thanks to Red Hill General Store for donating buckets to anyone who wanted to participate in the Real Farmwives of America & Friends group! They were gracious enough to mail each and every one of us a bucket. They are different shapes, sizes, and even different colors! And, the best part is - you can win a bucket too! The Real Farmwives of America & Friends are having a give-a-way on their website and one lucky reader will win a Galvanized Embossed Tub from Red Hill General Store.
So, I happen to love buckets! In fact, my hub laughs at me because I LOVE a new bucket. I just happen to have quite a few sitting around - inside, outside, here and there! So, this was a definite yes for me - I knew that I wanted a new bucket!!
My bucket arrived just a few days ago and I was really excited! It's fantastic - I got the 2.25 gallon oval tub. It's a great size to use outdoors as a planter or a centerpiece BUT since it is new - I decided to use it 'in the home' for now and save 'in the garden' for later!!
I asked my kids to think about how they would use this tub and I got anywhere from a hat to a toy tractor bin, to a baby bathtub and even to a shoe! (You know who said that!!)
So, I thought about ways I could use my tub and quite frankly - I thought of a lot of them! Since I haven't had a whole lot of time with my new tub, I've only tried a couple so far...
I loaded it with fruit and took it to a picnic over the weekend! It was the perfect size and a great addition to an outdoor BBQ.
Then, I washed it out and decided to use it as a craft tub. We are currently re-doing our toy / craft room so I thought it would make a great addition to that room! My girls were SO excited to see this new tub in their room!
In fact, my kiddos will be using this tub for a project tomorrow - stay tuned!!
While Red Hill General Store did provide me with a bucket to blog about for this post, the pictures, ideas and opinions shared here are my own.
