ChiPPy!-SHaBBy! ViNtaGe Garden ***around my home***

OMG!*!*!  The weather here is Wisconsin is FINALLY warming up!!!!  My eye tends to re-visit my vintage garden displays...  re-arrange...  & yes 'WEED-OUT"!!!  I bet you'll find some exceptional watering cans FOR SALE in my booth at the NORTHWIND PERENNIAL ANTIQUE GARDEN SHOW IN JUNE!!!

 "Funky" wooden Flowers... Old metal garden markers... Old wooden garden markers/stakes...


This ViNtaGe Garden Sprinkler IS THE PRIZE of my entire collection!*!*!  My husband surprised me just a few years ago on my birthday with this AwEsoMe ~ 2-die-4 FIND!*!*!


I honestly have about "400" watering cans in my collection ~ OMG!*!*!  If you've ever been to a SaLe at my house, you'd see the majority of them hanging from our garage ceiling!!!  All my favorites ~ mostly smaller-sized ones are in the house...  If I had to pick "JUST ONE" Favorite Watering - this one would be it!!!!  I LoVe Everything about it!!!   Form... Color... Patina...


We have certain areas in our home that are an "open concept"...  There is a special ledge in what I all my "Garden Loft" where I have a lot of vintage garden displayed.  On this ledge are a few of my favorites...  This one here is an old hardware store tool display for the DOO KLIP hand cutting shears...  LoVe It!!!


A better view of the ledge area...  This spot is REALLY HIGH UP... The center - Old Truck Door is from "A Green House/Garden Center" - long gone - in Milwaukee...

  4. OMG, YOU HAVE THE BESTEST STUFF EVER! IF I EVER FOUND A GARDEN SPRINKLER LIKE THAT, YOU'D HAVE TO PREY IT OUT OF MY HANDS!

    LET ME KNOW WHEN YOU HAVE ANOTHER HOUSE SALE. (I PROMISE, IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE SPRINKLER!) I THINK IT WOULD BE FUN TO TAKE A TRIP TO CEDARBURG.

    HAPPY EASTER DEAR GIRL, JUDY
