ViNtaGe GaRdeN - Not Tooo SHaBBy Tools-Of-The-Trade...

I've been "eyeing our garden" ALL DAY LONG...  This little ViNtaGe Garden Vignette developed unexpectedly as I brought out this and that from the GaRaGe while working on my SHaBBies!*!*!





 The BEE SKEP is a more recent addition to the Garden this year...
The dealer I purchased it from said it was Vintage, and from France...








 This Long Handled Vintage Garden Tool still retains the Manufacturer's Label... 
and it's MADE IN USA!*!*!




 This is one of my FaVoRiTe ViNtaGe Watering Cans...




The Sprinkling Rose Head is the BeSt!*!*!
Soft, gentle wide spray...
