Vintage Watering Cans

Every time you read my blog, you see some of my vintage watering cans by the potting shed.
They have been away for the winter and today I decided to clean them and get them out.

It looks so bare. The birds have done a number on my window box.

I put this window up 16 years ago when I put the shed up. The lace curtain is actually an old plastic lace tablecloth that was my Grandmothers that I reused.

Cleaned and ready to go. They all have their own personalities.

This is my favorite, I bought it on an outing with my Mom years ago.
This is the door handle to the potting shed


So very much work to do!!

Oh my, these are just wonderful. Can't you just see one on the kitchen country full of flowers. I've probably put them all over the whole house and the yard. Love them. Hugs, Marty

I wish I had a potting shed to decorate. And I really do like that watering can with the long spout.

What fabulous watering cans - you are so lucky to have the roses with them. I have my Aunts old one but sadly the rose was missing, I love using it as it is better balanced than modern ones.

I love your collection of watering cans. We had one like this when I was a kid. I am still on a search for one! They can be quite pricey. Love the handle on your shed too!

I always LOVE your watering cans all lined up in your header photo. Your yard is just amazing with all kinds of vintage goodies! Loved this post. Happy VTT!

Oh, how cute - the door handle! You've got a great selection of watering cans. I like your idea of the plastic lace for the window. What a cool shed you have.

Your photos are great today! Love old watering cans and I only have one. Go figure. Love the handle on the shed. I thought that window was a real window! Ha! Looks so good! HMMMMM...maybe I could do that. I have a couple extra windows hanging out here.
It's been another day of getting a few things done and much down time, but I needed it and it will be there tomorrow. It's supposed to cool off soon, and I think it's tomorrow, so I sat in the sun as much as I could today.
Hugs- Tete

Great to see your garden shed! Doesn't everybody love watering cans? I certainly do. You have a wonderful collection of them.

I love the potting shed. You are giving me ideas. My potting shed is still a work in progress. A third of it has been converted to a hen house. I like the bench and watering cans, and especially the lace curtain. Great idea. cheers. ann

The cans are cool but I really love the old window with lace. Yummy!

I love old watering cans. I have one that belonged to my 95 year old aunt. They do each have their own character.

That is so neat! I never would have guessed the window didn't have real lace behind it! I love the vintage watering cans! I haven't seen any anywhere for sale but I will be on the look out from now on! Have a great week!

Old watering cans....love 'em! I have one, myself. I should have put it away in the winter because the water froze in it and the bottom is now rounded and tippy. Your's look great!

What a wonderful collection of watering cans. I have a couple. They are hard to find in our area and when you do they are so pricey. Love your potting shed. ~~Sherry~~

Love the new Spring look of your blog.

Rebecca said...

I collect those too and am going to put mine out this weekend. It's one of the first things I do in the spring. I just love to line them up! Have fun!

Jane said...

You have a wonderful collection of watering cans. They look so cool all lined up together. I was at a shop yesterday that had a few but they were quite expensive. I love your shed too.
Have a great weekend.

I've always noticed the cans in your blog header and thought "It's a good thing I don't live on her street." I might be tempted to steal! :)

Gail said...

OMGoodness, I love old watering cans and you have quite a collection of them! I have a couple and would love to get more but they are just so expensive. They look so nice lined up at your shed.

Have a wonderful weekend,
