Sweet Little Cow Pail

Shortly after we moved into our home in Texas this summer I needed to make a run to Home Depot for a couple of things.
When my husband found out my plans he told me he saw an Ace Hardware right down the street from us and suggested I may want to go there instead.
Since it was closer I decided to go ahead and check it out.
Well let me tell you, my husband made a BIG mistake suggesting I go to this store.
It turns out well over half of the store is home decor!!!!
Really, really, nice things all beautifully displayed.
So about once a month
 (when I need to regain a little sanity after being with my three year old all week)
I decide I really need some spray primer or ant spray or anything something.

I then browse around to my hearts content!
On my first trip I found this adorable pail made to look like a vintage evaporated milk can.
So cute!!
Right now the store is decorated for Christmas and let me tell you, it rivals anything the big department stores do.
It has some of the most amazing Christmas decorating I've ever seen.
I tried taking pictures for you guys, but my photos just don't do it justice.
So thanks for sending me to Ace honey!
mu ha ha!!!!


  1. Your milk can is adorable. Aren't you so glad that he informed you about this store? Ha!

  2. So cute! What a farm fresh feeling! :) I wish our local Ace had goodies like that, but our Ace does have two "store cats" so it's always fun to go in.

  3. How cute! I think there is a ACE Hardware in my travels. I might just have to drop in there and see all there pretties! Thanks for tip and hope you have a wonderful weekend, Gail

  4. Ace is the best kept secret. I think I could do lots of Christmas shopping there for sure. Love their clearance bins, too!

  6. Love the sweet little can! Our ACE only has home improvement stuff. BOO!

  7. Wow I will have to check out our ace.They have cute decorative things in ours too! LOVE that sweet little can!

  8. Hi Lisa, who would have ever thought an Ace Hardware would be such a treasure trove? We have one here in town (I think) but it's been years since I went there. I'll have to give it another look. Hope it's as well stocked as yours! And I love that little cow pail! Have a great day!

  9. Ace Hardware eh? I don't know that I have ever been in one. I'm going to have to go check it out. Love your can.

  10. LOL! He will never send you to the hardware store again!!!!
    Your find is so adorable! I had no idea Ace was the place for home decor!

  11. We had a fantastic Ace near us in Edmond, OK. Haven't visited the one here yet. Your pail is adorable! Smart move buying that.

  12. Sounds like a fun place
