Once again, at lunch I ran over to Marshall's Home Goods and found a couple of great items.  First, this wonderful bright red bucket.  It's a glossy, brilliant fire engine red and the second I saw it I knew it had to be at the farm. It's also really large, hard to tell but it's like twice as big as a regular.

Then I saw this set of burlap baskets.  When I first saw them, I thought they were neat but almost didn't give them a second look.  I'm glad I did though...

...because they are printed with these great graphics  showing 20lbs, 10lbs, and 5lbs.  I'm hoping that one day, we can fill them with produce from the fruit trees.


  1. I like shopping at Home Goods too but its not as close as yours. It's a special trip for me. Sounds like spring stuff is there I may have to make a trip. Nice bucket. Not sure I'd have a use for the baskets.

    1. p.s. I thought Home Goods was a TJMax company. Didn't realize it was part of Marshalls.

    2. Home Goods, Marshalls and TJ Maxx are all under the same parent company. Trust me--I am surprised my credit card hasn't melted because of it, haha

  2. I often keep an eye on my local goodwill store & there are sometimes some great buckets end etc. and then I just paint them. Great find.

  3. Home Depot has some great galvanized buckets in the paint department that I plan to drill holes in and use as planters this year in parts of my garden. I know you love Home Depot, and if you like buckets....:)
