Thanks y'all for coming,
bucket of southern
cotton in my dining
is just too shabby for this gal!
handy at Haley's wedding...I
used it to hold the birdseed
that we all had so much fun
throwing at the couple
as they left the party.
I'm looking for some that is smaller
and has wire in it...anybody know
where I can find some?
