Vintage Wheelbarrow

I am always collecting gardening themed items. You can imagine how happy I was to find a little wheelbarrow at an antique store in my hometown.

If I find a vintage metal wheelbarrow I have to bring it home.
I have red, green, white, but not a blue one.
It was $5 "as it" was the "as is" because of the rust?
It makes it have more character.
(yes that is some pyrex I bought for $2 in the background0

The wheel is yellow

They are great to display things in. I had just bought these little carrots and the made the perfect paring!

It will stay on the Hoosier cabinet for now, then out to the Garden cottage.

I love that little wheelbarrow! I've never seen one so small. I have to say I would have had to snap it up, too!

Love it, Ann. I love that it is weathered and aged. I just remembered I picked up a little light aqua one last year and it is out in my potting area. I need to go get it! xo Diana
