Beauty of a Vintage Watering Can

Oh happy day! There’s nothing better than finding something you’ve been looking for and it’s FREE.
The beach cottage garden shed was left in a total mess from the previous owners and after all this time we still haven’t gotten through everything. I’ve been wanting to find an old metal watering can but never thought to look in the garden shed…duh!
Lo and behold an old watering can was hiding behind some stuff on a bottom shelf.  Besides a disfigured bottom, the rest of the can had just a bit of age to it; which gave it the type of charm I was searching for.
My newest love is this watering can (don’t worry, I’m not going to name it or anything…I don’t think). It’s been moved from room to room in the beach cottage in order to find just the right place. It works in so many rooms that I think it will just visit them all; which is fine with me because its charm makes every room more cozy.

Liz rescued a gorgeous piece of driftwood from the beach recently and let her ole mom (me) keep it.  It has graceful lines so I had to make up a little vignette using it as well as the watering can.  A vintage starfish from my mother’s collection (I figure it is about 60 years old now) and the last of the cherry blossoms finished off the table nicely. Our French-style clock in the background looked great with it too, what do you think?
