I think they're fabulous flower buckets.

Alyssa Grace said...

I personally think they would be really cute on a window display with either fresh or even paper flowers!!

Kathryn said...

Could they be milking buckets? Kathie L in Allentown

Janet said...

I'd go for flower pails too - I'd have said milk pails but no handles.

Nancy said...

I think they are from a florist or maybe even blueberry pails?

Judy said...

Love your teal metal containers...I think you should add some decor...beautiful fabric, greenery, something floral, an interesting piece of architecture...to make them pop!

mascanlon said...

Just the yummiest color, some sort of flower pot me thinks!

Deb said...

I'm going for flower buckets -

Heather A said...

I, too, am going with milk pails.

I'm an official follower of your blog, and like you on FB. Hmmm - are they for displaying flowers at a florist's?

Sandy said...

Could they be for collecting maple syrup from maple trees? I love the color! Thanks for the opportunity to win some beautiful fabrics!

gill said...

Great colour!
Are they for collecting the syrup from sugar maple trees??

Lindsey F. said...

Milking buckets? The color is fabulous!

Robin (RsIslandCrafts) said...

Maple syrup buckets? Love the teal color :)

Peach Rainbow said...

With your clue I guess they are used to collect maple syrup :D

quiltzyx said...

Hmmmmm. They seem to have a bit of a pour spout, so I'm going to go with sap buckets. They are very cool looking - maybe even better with some fabric coming out of them - if they weren't up on top of the cabinet! :D
They would also make some awesome sand castles....

Marcia W. said...

They look like those buckets that are hooked to maple trees to collect sap for syrup. They look too small for turpentine buckets. What do I know - we don't collect for maple syrup in Florida! Plus, we never used this kind of container to milk our cows.
I would use them to hold sewing supplies and markers.

Snoodles said...

I started to say they were for pouring pancake batter on the griddle at some huge pancake house, after I saw your hint! LOL I guess I'll have to agree with those who say they're for syrup, but I don't quite get how they'd be attached to the maple tree? No handle!
They're a lovely color, anyway!
