watering.

Exploring the watering can.

I admit, I spent way too much money on this can, way back when. When we had more disposable income I guess. I believe it cost $35.00 at an antique store.
It was a valentine's day gift for Alex... A sort of romantic-symbolic-cheesy sort thing...like we both like to garden/watering our love sort of thing. Plus it was probably a little of a for-you-for-me sort of gift as I totally fell in love with it's dinged up edges and big spout head.

When I excitedly told my Dad about my score he really squashed my enthusiasm by insinuating I was an idiot to spend that much money on a used watering can. "You were ripped off" I believe he said. "You can get a new can for $5.00 anywhere."
"But... I don't want a $5.00 can. This way it is more symbolic... Don't you get it???"
"No... I don't see why you need to pay that much for a watering can. That is crazy."
pause. "You were ripped off."

Alex liked it. Or so he said...
Lil likes it.
I still think it was worth it...

I Love her tutu! She is sooo cute! And you can tell your dad that you can not find a watering can for $5. I have looked. They are all expensive. Most good watering cans do go for about $35, which is why I only have cheap small watering cans that I have make 15 trips with. I say well spent $35!

Do you water with it? If you water with it, it is priceless. Imagine if you couldn't water anything! That would be terrible!

Cute, cute pics! Love the tutu, and love the watering can. Such history it has ... love wondering whose garden it once watered, other than yours ...
I'd say it was/is a great deal!

Nope, that Dad guy isn't a moron, he just tells it like it is. :)
