Another Watering Can...

I have a thing for watering cans.
  I didn't know it until I realized I had three of them.  I found the first one at Sally Ann's.  You can see what I did with it here.

Here is watering can number two (you'll have to wait to see number three in a future post.)  I bought this years ago at TJ Maxx.  I loved the shiny bright red color and as the sun fades it, I like it even more.  The brass nozzle has a nice patina to it now as well.

I decided to mosaic the top.  Here it is before I grouted it.

It was hard to find a dish that had some "red" in it.  After looking through my china collection, I found this plate.  The funny thing is, it's one of the first plates I ever bought for mosaics and that was way back when....

Here it is after I grouted it.

I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out.  I used a grout, my friend Chris gave me.  It's called Irish creme.  It seemed to have a red tone to it.

I have to say that I'm please with how it looks hanging out with my 'forget-me-nots'.

I wish the 'forget-me-nots' stayed in bloom all summer long. 

What have you been creating?
