Jeanine's AMAZING Watering Cans!*!*!*!

OK ~ for weeks now I've been soooooo stressed about getting "SHABBBY" (my car) in the garage BEFORE Winter hits us here in the Midwest... I went to Round Top/Warrenton - TEXAS this Fall INSTEAD of having my usual ChiPPy!-SHaBBy! FALL SaLe... So much work goes into my sales that there was NO-WAY I could do it after I returned... I sure have the inventory for our 2010 SaLe on Saturday, May 22nd... (click on pics to enlarge... click on comments to leave feedback...)

Some of you might not know, put my "Major Collection" is ViNtaGe Garden Items... I started collecting them in the early 80's when I lived in Nevada - the Desert of all places... I have over 400 Vintage Watering Cans in my collection... It's rare that I buy one anymore - it has to be something pretty special if I do... Shape/form - color - patina - & size are all taken into consideration... These cans are hanging from poles in our garage ceiling... It's sooooo fun to see them when I drive the car in!*!*!




Since we don't have a barn, I try to set up some type of display in our garage so I can enjoy my ViNtaGe Garden Collectibles... I always mix in architectural salvage & concrete pieces...





View coming down the steps from the house - into the garage...




The colored watering cans on the tiered bench stand are some of my "crude" favorites...



I just LoVe the Old White Wire Gate I picked up a few weeks ago... Other Vintage Garden items I collect are Seed Cabinets... Seed boxes... Sprinklers... Rakes... Hand tools... Seed Packets... Orchard Signs... Flower frogs... Seed Jars... Concrete Statues & Garden Advertising...






I LoVe these Old APPLE SIGNS!*!*!
These Watering Cans ALL have labels...




Most of my cans are American... My cute smaller-sized cans are inside the house...
