Dr Pepper decor

To go along with one of my favorite pictures of the kids.
We found a great local junk / antique shop and I bought one of these old soda crates.  Pottery barn has something similar here, but I like mine better because we found it and it cost a lot less than their ones.

Here it is on our sewing machine table.
even though it's from Oklahoma and not Texas, I still love this old weathered wood, and a place to out other found treasures

Have you seen the new TV series on the History channel - called American Pickers.

"Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz are just two ordinary guys looking for extraordinary things. American Pickers follows them as they scour the country's junkyards, basements and barns for hidden gems."

I am not interested in a lot of the things they are looking for on the show, motorcycles etc, but I love the concept that there is a lot out there hidden in barns and houses waiting to be re-discovered.  One man's trash is another's treasure?

Great find. The old drink crates are getting harder and harder to find. Thanks for sharing.

Anything with lots of little cubbies is always a favorite of mine - so many wonderful uses!
