Croquet Balls

Years ago I saw old croquet balls in a bowl. I can't remember if it was in a Country Living magazine or at an antiques shop. I have always wanted the balls, but they were always so expensive...I was running to our Home Depot one eve. and saw a big sign that said "FREE" so I glanced over...WOOAH!! low and behold a croquet set. I grabbed them up, when I got home I saw the the posts were broken , well, now I have my balls!!! I just love them, for now they have a home in my wagon.
I gave my shoe a bit of a new look with different buttons on this side.

Laurie, You mean you haven't made a pin cushion out of that wagon yet?
;-) That would be SO adorable!

I've passed up a couple of croquet sets - too expensive. I'd say it was your lucky day!
