I am not sure what this vintage bucket on three legs was originally meant to store, but I can picture it it holding anything from magazines to umbrellas to knitting supplies to hats and mittens to a large potted plant! I had fun painting the ocean scene with a lighthouse, beach, island village and seven hot air balloons. The views are loosely based on southern New England locales. I photographed every one of the balloons in the sky at festivals in Connecticut. The bucket is all wood with the exception of the two metal bands. The divider inside is easily removed. It weighs 7 pounds and stands 20″ tall (not counting the handle). The bucket is 10.5″ deep and tapers from 12.5″ in diameter at the bottom to 11″ diameter at the top. It is currently available for sale at $125 plus shipping and handling.
This hand painted wooden pot is 5″ tall and can hold anything you want like a 5″ plant, or your colored pencils (not included), or pretty hand towels in the guest bathroom, or utensils and napkins on the dinner table. I had such fun painting a wide range of flowers on it. There are a dozen varieties of Pansies among the 16 hand painted blossoms, plus several buds, fading flowers, leaves, seed pods and one burst open seed pod. I painted a lovely fat honey bee and a lady bug. Pansies are very special flowers! Not only do they have a multitude of faces and colors but they are very happy in the cold! I set them on the front stoop while snow is still melting! Yay Spring!!
