Veep over at Veg Plotting signed up for my pay it forward post a few weeks ago. My Post was part of a meme that I signed up for at Jan’s Blog, Thanks for 2 Day. It was a simple request and one that I really loved doing. For the first couple of people who sign up at your blog, you send them a hand make gift with no strings attached. They don’t send you a thing in return. At first, I thought I wasn’t going to be able to make my trademark watering can for Veep. She was the only one who signed up but she lives in the United Kingdom and I live in the good old South. I wasn’t sure how I was going to get it to her.
I normally make the large watering cans and that was going to cost $70 to get it to Veep. But then I had an idea. If I could find a watering can just a bit smaller—it would be doable. Well….as you can see….I found a nice little pea yellow can. Veep said she liked bold colors. She told me that pastels are for wimps. It was plain when I started with it. I don’t say how I get the design on there. Sorry but a girl has to keep some things a secret.
There is a packet of seeds on there of my favorite Envy Zinnias. I hope that passes customs. I made a little plant ID poke so she will not forget what they are.
Sometimes I use these watering cans all decorated like this in some of my arrangements. I color coordinate the flowers and greenery with the colors in the can.
Veep, I hope you like it. I loved making it. It will go out in the mail tomorrow. It’s going snail mail so I’ll let you know the ETA. Hugs to ya.
