Maple Syrup Buckets

 planting succulents, herbs and flowers in re-purposed 
containers and canisters is no new idea. 

but for someone who didn't grow up in vermont, 
these maple syrup buckets are. the hole at the top of them is doubly intriguing. 
a while ago i was trying to come up with a clever way of 
sorting out the mail that comes to our apartment. 
what about three of these, different colors, attached to the wall by their nail hole?

these multi-colored buckets, which are my favorite, from Pip and I
