On the way to my daughter’s house is a junk store.
It says “antique store” on the door, but it’s definitely not a well-styled antique store.
It’s crammed with stuff, it’s old, dusty and musty, and it’s on a not very desirable corner of a busy street.
To top it off, more often than not, there’s a closed sign on the door.
Still, I do crane my neck to look in the window whenever we drive by it, you know,
just in case there’s an irresistable treasure.
On one such drive by, lo and behold, I spied an old watering can.
I’ve been wanting a watering can for the plants and patio planters,
(that I don’t have yet, but plan to get for our new patio),
that the sprinkler system doesn’t reach.
And since I need a watering can, why not one with some personality?
On my next drive by the junk store, it was open for a change.
I pulled in and asked the price of the watering can in the window.
Then I offered the owner quite a bit less than the asking price,
and she said, “close enough.”
A watering can with personality for even less than an inexpensive one at the local garden center!
I do plan to actually use it outdoors for watering plants.
But in the meanwhile, it does look kind of cute indoors holding flowers too.
Friday’s comin’ so I wish you all a…
HAPPY, HAPPY FRIDAY EVERYONE and HAVE A BLESSED WEEKEND!
