A Buggy Bucket

My dear friend Jenny who lives all the way in New York wanted a bucket for her little boy Will. She wanted something to keep by the backdoor to put balls, bubbles, sunscreen, and all those other outside toys in. She said she had bugs in mind so this is what she got!

Perfect for a Tailgate

Every year the Junior Auxiliary of Benton holds an Annual Children's Benefit. At the benefit they hold a live and silent auction. I have painted children's canvases in the past to donate but this year I wanted to do something different. So I made some Easter buckets and this Razorback bucket. In a land that loves those hogs this was a great item and perfect for a tailgate!

Easter Buckets

Here are some of the buckets I made for Easter. I am lucky to have friends in the photography business who let me display and sale my buckets at their studio during their Easter pictures. They always have tons of customers during this time so it was a great opportunity for me! I made 40 personalized buckets over about a two week period! It was a crazy but fun two weeks!!

Where it all began

Christmas of 2007 I made these buckets for the kids so that Santa would have something to put their small presents. This is where it all started!

Welcome to Whimsy Tin!

Since I have had a lot of people tell me that I needed to start a blog for my buckets I have finally done it!! The one thing holding my back was a name for my buckets. Lucky for me I have a friend who is amazing at coming up with catchy names. The first name she came up with was Whimsy Tin but she was going to come up with a few more. The more I thought about it the more I loved the name so that is how my buckets became Whimsy Tin!

Thanks Sheree for the name!!
