As some of you may know, I tend to be fairly smitten with galvanized tin. I love that stuff! It starts off shiny and new, and in my opinion, after it has some years of use under it's belt, the look gets better with age. I especially love the patina of old tin. It's excellent.
I also love using things for something than what they were originally made for. Case in point:
A galvanized metal feed scoop. Throw in a mason jar (of course! How can you go wrong with a mason jar and anything galvanized?!) with a candle, and voila! Perfection. It lets off a really great glow when it's dark out. I love it! I had to steal this scoop from the chicken feed, but hey, a peanut butter container works just as well, no? (At least that's what I told the Girls!) It would also look great screwed to the wall, or with a few different sizes, as part of a bigger display.
