Why can't I just throw it away?

Do you ever have one of those items that probably should be thrown away, but ya just can't do it?  I have this vintage English trug with remnants of original green paint that has been slowly deteriorating over the last few years.  I just can't throw it away....

I think it still has a couple'a good years left!!


  1. I do the same thing! So good to come by today and see your holiday decor and all those pretty paper whites! Have you filled the cupboard yet?



  2. I think it's got some life left in it too! I will hold on to things forever, and then when I finally throw it away, I wish I had it again! OY!

  3. i totally agree!
    It is a keeper!!

    you could line it with some birch bark or something and still use it. put some burlap over the birch if it is not your thing.

    a lovely piece!

  4. I have a problem throwing things out...well except for that hat:)) I think that basket has plenty of life still in it!
    Good night!

  5. I SO understand Susie!! It has history, character and look how wonderful it looks with the plants inside!!!! hugs and love, Dawn

  6. It looks beautiful! So glad you didn't throw it out. I have "made" myself toss things and later regretted it. Sometimes it takes a while to get inspiration for repurposing a piece. Blessings! Nita Jo
