Nifty Thrifty Finds

Once in a while, I hit the Salvation Army store just to look for things that I would normally not see in other stores. Usually, the price at Thrift Store is much cheaper too.

I spotted this blue watering can with it fun design and it is a must have. It has a certain charm to the whole thing, and already my mind was flooded with ideas of uses for it.

Since it had a large opening mouth, I thought of using it as a flower pot, or herbal plant such as basil to keep on my window sill.

Walking to another aisle I found this yellow watering can with blue flower! They have the same design, but just different reverse colors.

I pick these two watering cans up for three dollars, and thought of the saying, "Another man's trash is another man's treasure" was ever so close to my heart.
