So- I returned the others and paid a little bit more for the new, but overall I'm completely satisfied.
Jessica & Andrea gave me a gift certificate to Mac's for my b-day and I loaded up on the flowers to finally get these baskets up and out of the garage.
It may not look like much now, but in a few weeks these babies will be cascading like no body's business, or so I'm told.
I might also mention that I have been looking for a great watering can for years. I would always find one but I wasn't ever willing to shell out $40 for those that caught my fancy.
Then I randomly found the perfect one at Applegate Nursery a few weeks back. I quickly snatched it up and smugly showed Jeremy my purchase for under $5!! (I'm not even kidding).
His first and only words were "How are you going put water in it?"
"WHAT are you talking about?" I said.
He promptly showed me the bottom where there were four rather large holes in the metal.
Why didn't I notice? Because I was too fixated on the beauty and the dirt cheap price tag.
I was devastated, but since my father-in-law can "fix" anything it wasn't a total loss. He fixed the holes, I was redeemed for my mishap, and I LOVE watering the baskets with my charming watering can.
I feel truly Martha.
