Last Picnic of Summer?

Last Spring I bought an old bucket at a tag sale. I remember these in the 70’s and these buckets were used to hold all manner of things from sewing, knitting, toys, and anything really. Well, I had the idea to spiff it up some and then use it for picnicking.
Here’s the bucket and lid. Pretty pathetic, huh?

I could have done the shabby thing and the chalk paint thing but it didn’t happen. I wanted something nice and clean and new looking for a picnic. So I spray painted the bucket with white spray paint. Then I used an electric staple gun to staple on some picnic looking fabric, red gingham what else?

And here it is….

My granddaughter and her friend help show it off along with our Texas rescue dog, Bunny. Looking for food, Faith? Nope. Maybe this weekend…

And here’s the old time match to go with it, the Coleman juice jug. This is old. I remember making Kool Aid in here to take to the beach.

Would this post be complete without a Photos Scape Collage? No. I love making collages in Photo Scape.

Best wishes, my friends, for a lingering summer and summery weather.
