Thursday’s Treasures – Watering Cans

I’m a collector of things. There. I said it. I’m sure there is a 12-step program, but I’m happy with my collections and they haven’t taken control of my life, so far. So far…

I collect Santa Clauses, but I’m rather particular about the style, so that has kept my collection rather small. I also collect vases and had many in storage, or so I thought until I discovered in May that we lost many more items than we previously realized in a burglary. C’est la vie, right?

My watering can collection could hardly even be called a collection. I had one very pretty red flowered ceramic piece in storage and I had this piece with me:

I guess I had this one with me because it was more utilitarian, rather than decorative like the red flowered piece. Just goes to show, if you are going to have a collection, make it a useful one!

Last month I saw another watering can that I liked

My cousin Roberta helped me find the right shade of green/yellow/cream flowers when we were craft shopping last month in Phoenix.

Does two items make a collection?

    It does if you want them to! Pretty 🙂

    and ugh on the burglary – but now you get to collect more 😉

      That’s they way I’m looking at it, Missus Wookie. I may have lost many things, but now I have the opportunity to be selective and find a few things that will mean just as much as those old things.

    I’m not usually a fan of green flowers, but this lovely arrangement is very calming. I like it!
