As much as I hate to admit it, my brother's idea worked

Sitting around at Christmas, my brother came up with the idea of painting syrup buckets used to feed cows as planters to sell in our booth. At the time, I thought, "yeah, you have no idea how little space we have. Plus, I don't have time to make anything else."

This past weekend was our first event since Christmas. The first thing to sell, before we even finished setting up our booth was two out of three of the buckets we had painted up.

I'm not admitting this though. Dad can tell him. ;)

While the strawberry bucket hasn't sold quite yet, I have an order to make one in the same colors accept with a watermelon on it.
