Vintage French Flower Bucket

Look at this great treasure that I found!
I just could not leave the antique store without it.
A vintage Florist Bucket
I am going to refer to it as my
"French Flower Bucket"

it is my favorite color of green
it is chippy
and the black band at the top and bottom I love!

Thinking of a Springtime in Paris vignette
with forsythia blooms in it.

What would you do with it?
