The Olive Bucket

Everyone, including me wants one or has one. I was lucky to go to HyVee and find this now on sale out in their garden area for 50% off. It was only $20 for a very large size.

I found a 2qt. canning jar in the basement, first adding water and at the bottom of the bucket, I put a mixing bowl upside-down to raise the height for the jar.
I ran out to the garden and clipped some large leaf hostas and daisy's.
I first tried placing it on the dining room table but it just wasn't right...
So I moved it to the living room mantel.
I also switched up some of the summer decor...
