A Tole Container & New/Old Bench

 Hi there friends...
I think I need an intervention of some sort because I can't seem to stay away from the flea market or antique stores!!
I've been on a good luck streak every time I go...and everything that's come home with me I've gotten amazing deals on so I couldn't pass them up!
~~~
Take for instance this large tole container...it was originally marked $100 and the owner of the space had it marked down to $30 because it was sitting there so long...
I got it for $25...(insert happy dance)!!
 I filled it with dried hydrangeas that I had in my storage room for over two years and they still look great!

 ~~~
 Next up was a freebie thanks to my mom...she brought this little beauty home for me...thanks mom I love it!!
Isn't this little bench so sweet...
I moved it in a few different spots but I love the way it looks tucked under my sofa table. 
   That's all for today...gotta go and finish up a painting project that I started!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
