Vintage Crock Pot

I have this vintage crock pot. It measures 24 inches high by 22 inches in diameter. It needs to be outside (I don't have room for it inside the house). It's been outside being used as something to hold the smaller pool toys. But..... I'd like to do something more creative with it. So I'm asking my blogger friends for some ideas.
It is my husband's crock pot. He bought this long time ago at an estate auction in Missouri. And he's been a bit picky about the ideas I've come up with so far. Filling it up with dirt and putting a plant in it is a definite NO, NOT EVEN. I can't wait to hear all your great ideas!

I was thinking umbrella holder, but you don't need umbrellas too often. hmmmm
What about keeping the dogs toys in it????
Will it hold ice and drinks for outside parties?
Thats all I got...sorry. :)

Create an artificial flower arrangement for it? I know there are more creative bloggers out there. It'll be interesting what others have to say.

I put my large utensils in mine..tongs...long spoons...maybe he could put his BBQ utentils in it...what about flags for the 4th of July...I like the idea of using it as an ice bucket....

Deb has an idea with flags for the 4th; you could use small gourds/pumpkins for Autumn etc. and decorate by the front door or one of the patio tables.

I'm with Deb. I think bbq utensils would look good in it.
