Not sure if you can see it, but the trowel reads "Spring". I did spend $5.00 on the flowers, but they're SOOO pretty.
This is what I started with. I don't know if J.C. Higgins items are valuable, but I know they are a popular vintage piece. That label was for many Sears products back in the day, mainly their recreation and sporting goods items like guns, coolers, tennis. Rumor has it J.C. Higgins was someone who at one point actually worked for Sears -- not sure if that line eventually became J.C. Penney, but there might be a connection.
I first drilled holes in the bottom of the cart to provide drainage. I also added a scrap piece of screening before adding the dirt so it wouldn't fall through the holes.
This was when I FIRST thought I was done. But I rethought the yellow paper tag and decided to switch it for the trowel that I had stuck in the dirt.
And there you have !
But, stay tuned, I'm not done yet -- remember I still have that 1 mallet and 4 balls. Hmmm.....
