This is the treasure that keeps on giving. I picked up this fabulous hoosier bin drawer at a tiny local flea market here in town. The old wood frame, metal lined bin and antique nails made this an item I just could not pass up. As with many items I bring home from market, I am not always certain what I will end up doing with it. I kept moving this drawer about Le Potager, tried filling it with plants, piling it high with antique terra cotta pots, poured dozens and dozens of large pine cones inside and nothing seemed exactly right. Then, almost magically, a long forgotten back-ordered item arrived.
The hoosier drawer and the rooster... the perfect marriage of old and new. This nesting style rooster fit perfectly inside the drawer and left just enough room to add embellishments. Here I have added holiday pine, berries and pine cones for a charming festive look. Changing the nesting materials seasonally makes this a timeless accessory. Both the subject matter and the style create a look that can accent many different decor styles. I am happy to say that the hoosier drawer has found its purpose.
