A "Creeper" Tin Pail

Happy Saturday. I hope you are all enjoying your weekend. For today's post, I have an altered tin pail from the Target dollar spot. I was very surprised to see these there because they are larger than the minis they usually have. And I know these larger ones cost several dollars more. The shopaholic in me wanted to purchase at least 10 to have on stand by but the rational side of me beat me to a pulp and said NO. lol.

I originally created this to give away as an Easter Tin Pail. In the past years, these have been all the rage. It seems as no one really wants to buy the overly expensive, fluffed up cheap baskets from the supermarket, etc anymore. I mean, I don't blame you as to why you wouldn't. I don't. But there is something nostalgic to them every time I see them. Aren't they for you?

OK so I was saying, it was originally created to be given away as an Easter gift but I loved it so much that I decided to keep it and use it as a mini trash can for my mini scrap area (lol).

I think for many, she might not be the cutest because of her expression but to me she is because of her expression. She just looks so annoyed, angry, giving you attitude, being sassy but I think that's what is so great about her. And she reminds me of my sister, who at first sight was like Uggghhh, lol.

Very cute, I love her attitude!

My Husband and I still use the same Easter baskets I bought us when we first met over 20 years ago! I just don't have the heart to get new ones!

love the pail! That's a good idea to use it as a trash pail because I too have a mini scrap space lol.
