Today my husband and I spent the day antiquing in a cute little town about a half hour from home. We spent a few hours shopping and then stopped at a Cracker Barrel for dinner on the way home. Such a fun day!! We picked up some great stuff, but this is by far my favorite:
|An old pickle jar|
|It has a great lid and wood handle|
I love, love, love this jar!! I've been looking for one for a while; I was lucky enough to find one that was a good price, and (Bonus!) it has a red lid and handle, which is perfect because it will match the other stuff on my front porch. And it's BIG! It can hold lots, which is perfect for what I am going to use it for. I also found a small old metal scoop. The two just seemed destined to go together.
|Small metal scoop|
I tied a piece of twine around the scoop's handle.
I got a 12 lb bag of birdseed, filled the jar up, and hung the scoop from a piece of the metal that is holding on the jar's handle.
|Really happy because it fits in great with the other reds.|
I'm so thrilled with pretty, squirrel-proof way I can store birdseed on my porch now. Hope everyone is having a great summer!
Thanks for stopping by,
