Every farmwife has her trusty bucket that she uses around the house and garden.  Her bucket is ideal for putting things in or used to accomplish tasks around the house in.  Whether it’s used as a decoration in her home, used outside for gathering food and flowers from the garden, or used temporarily as a toy for the kids, a good bucket is priceless on the farm.

Today the Farmwives share uses for buckets given to them by Red Hill General Store’s Bucket Outlet. Join me as we take a peak inside some of the farmwives homes and gardens and see what they were using their buckets for.  You can always visit them individually and stay a little longer by clicking on the links and be sure to check out our Give-a-Way at then end of this post!!!!!

    As a side note, I actually washed out paint buckets to save when we painted our house…makes good compost/scrap saver on kitchen counter because it has a lid. Thanks and have a good dayl

    each farm wife had very neat ideas for buckets enjoyed visiting the sites and seeing how they used their bucket. very creative. Loved the floating candle arrangement on a Latte’ with Ott, A

    I also agree with SIG…nature Notes. I’d probably carry my personal garden tools in my bucket.

    I’d say it’s a tie between 2 Maids a Milking with the fruit (so pretty) and Whose the Grown Up with the utensil idea. I need to do that with my utensils, my drawers are packed!

    I visited all the blogs and got a lot of great ideas for buckets–Goodeness Gracious had the funniest post–very clever. My favorite use was the barley and candle centerpiece because it held such significance to their family.
