Find of the Week:

I love the antique vibe of this 13-inch tall metal pitcher. It reminds me of the kind of thing my grandmother would have used to water her flowers. You could use it for that too, but it would also make a great place for a bouquet of wild flowers. It comes in different colours and cost $4 at Dollarama.

See past Finds here.
