Where Do You Find This Stuff?????

That is the question I'm asked all the time. Where do you find all this stuff???? Well Let me tell you...You have to kiss a lot of frogs to find your Prince.

This morning I found a Prince, at least in my mind.

What is it you may ask?????? It's a military water bottle carrier of some sort

It appears to be fully insulated, has a wonderful carry strap, a perfect US on the side, a wooden bottom.

What's it good for you ask???? Well I'm thinking that a flower pot with a wonderful plant growing out the top would look great in it. It could also be good for transporting items that need to be kept cold.

Who cares what it's good for, It's just fabulous on it's own!!!!!

What would you do with it????
BTW, Where is everyone, traffic is up but comments are zero. I'm beginning to feel like I'm talking to myself. Update: Guess there has been a problem with blogger and the word verification process on comments. I've removed it so now you should be able to comment again. I'm glad it was a technical error, I was really wondering what was going on.

Don't forget about the Red Shed Sale this Saturday
The Red Shed Girls in Grapevine Texas
See their blog for all the great info

It looks like it is from Desert Storm days. I remember living on base, when everything went from Khaki Green to Khaki Dusty. I would use it for 4th of July, lined with a plastic tablecloth, holding my homemade ice cream tub insert filled with ice cream and have flags and sparklers popping out, with an apple pie or peach cobbler right next to eat...dang, now I'm hungry... Where did you find your Prince, lol. It is a great piece. Lezlee

I'm hear! Been reading, drooling, but just not commenting a lot. I'm planning a junking weekend to New Orleans at the end of July. Only live 40 miles from there but with RL always enterfering, some things have to be planned!

Hi Margo - hope you have a wonderful weekend. Thanks for your comments on my garden! It's been alot of hard work this spring and summer but I love it!

I'm not sure what kind of bag that is - never seen one of those. I think I'd keep it and use it for a cooler instead of putting dirt in it - it'd get all gross. Quite a conversation piece - or use it for a giant Christmas stocking!!!

Way cool. ~Mindy

What a GREAT find. I'd be carrying it around as a purse for awhile just to show it off. (My kids did that whenever they got new stuff, they would call their friends to have them come see their new stuff)Then I'd move on to using it for a picnic or something. Who knows. But I LOVE IT!!! Thanx for sharing.

I'm here! Lately, I find myself taking quick glances at all the blogs and not commenting. We all know you're there. Maybe it's the summertime thing. Great piece you found today. Susan

OK, I'll be the first! I'm here! not sure what I'd do with it but I love it! I think if I didn't use it to carry something cold, I'd stuff it with a feather pillow and use as it - so cool! BTW - where DID you find it? :-)

Margo, that is one really cool bag, I does look like a cooler, and I love the material!!! I wanted to thank you for visiting our little studio, and for your sweet comments.... Blessings~~~Daphne

I agree, it is fabulous! I love the flower pot idea.

Farmchick said...

Hmmmm....I would likely use this for a flower. I love odd containers for plants. Also might use it in my son's room for storage, etc... He loves military stuff.

Looks like it's up and working now! Love, love, love the bag. Definitely a prince!

Just found your blog and love it. I love that bag and I would use it as a camera bag (as it's padded). I wish I could find stuiff like that.
