Good morning! OOOh I like what you've put together!! That sap bucket= love! What a great find and yes indeed it's always the little things that inspire and add so much. I like your use of the key around the candlestick! Wondering what little thing is growing in the sap bucket.. very inspiring! I hope your day is great!

You saw a beautiful piece for your mantel...I would have seen an old metal bucket. You added a cross...I would have never dreamed it. I wish sometimes that I could see things through your eyes. I love the look.

Sometimes it only takes one thing to get us inspired. I need to do some tweaking at home myself.
