galvanized containers and a re-boot

hello... is anyone still there????

I think this is the longest blogging break I've taken in, well, forever. It was  unplanned, but much needed. Sickness, exhaustion and a creative drought just kinda took over and forced me to unplug for a while. I am happy to be back though, and looking forward to catching up with all my bloggy pals!

Oh and in case you visited the shop in the last few weeks and found nothing in my space, I'm sorry for that too. I hope you haven't given up on me completely and you will be happy to know that I was in yesterday filling it back up with all kinds of goodies. March has been a great sales month for me so far, which is awesome, but when I was in yesterday and noted only 1 piece of furniture in my space and just a couple of smalls I couldn't help but feel a twinge of guilt and disappointment with myself for not keeping up.

Okay, now that my little housekeeping updates are out of the way, I wanted to talk to you all about something very close to my heart. Galvanized containers. There are about a million ways to incorporate these little wonders into your home and there are about a million ways that I have used them. I thought it would be fun to share some of my favorite ways I've seen people using them. Galvanized containers = a world of possibilities! Enjoy,

Another idea for an old sewing machine table base! Fabulous galvanized tub filled with hostas sitting on the sewing table base.

111675265732402709 galvanized laundry sink  Hey this would work and be oh so unique.  Plastic utility tub , good bye :)

I dream of having a utility sink (can you believe that this furniture painter is without one of those essentials) and when I dream of my future utility sink it is most definitely a galvanized one. I would also love to make a pendant out of a big wash tub, unfortunately I don't have a spot for something like that, but I sure wish I did. So how about you, are you a galvanized container girl too? How do you use these little beauties around your home???
