    the metall and wood heart immediately attracted my attention as the metall buckets did. Fill it with flowers or firewood outside or use it as a bin or a container for towels in the bathroom.

      Yes! And I love planting things in the buckets for a very rustic, casual look in the garden. Thanks for the great ideas!
