Queen Bee Watering Can

LOVE my newest stencil!  It arrived last week from Maison de Stencils which is my favorite source for unique stencils.  This stencil is definitely destined for a pillow as soon as I get around to making one but in the meantime I just love what it did to this great galvanized watering can that I bought today from a new shop that just opened up here in Greensboro, NC a few weeks ago.  I met the VERY nice and friendly Lynn at Rustic Romance and I am headed back there tomorrow with my camera in hand to take some photos of her shop and will be posting them to the blog in the next few days.  I just love finding new places to shop that are filled with fun things to keep my eyes entertained.  Stay tuned for more details on this fun new shop.

In the meantime, let me show you my new galvanized watering can that I purchased there today.  Something about old garden tools, don’t you agree?

They have personality.  Much more attractive than the plastic green cans of which I have four.

My goal is to slowly replace all of them with something like this one.

So, after I got home and I was admiring my new watering can, the idea hit me to see if I could fit my stencil on to the can.  With some very strong tape and some outdoor craft paint, I was ready to roll.  Or should I say pounce?

I am delighted with the way it turned out!  Très joli n'est-ce pas?

I am linking up to Common Ground’s Vintage Inspiration party along with Potpourri Friday over at 2805, Friday’s Unfolded at Stuff & Nonsense, and Home Sweet Home at The Charm of Home
