Hello, hope you are having a happy Sunday. Yesterday afternoon we received a tiny bit of Spring rain. Afterwards the sun came out to play. I decided that I would give some of my yard art their annual Spring bath.
Today I wanted to share one of my collections. Why? Because I can! No, literally I mean I Can!
I love and collect oil and gas cans.
Most of them are housed in the garden. Right now they look kind of stark just sitting out there. Soon they will be nestled among blooming flowers.
It’s the tiniest things that make me love and want to buy each can.
Hubby thinks I’m crazy. But even he agreed that the OLSON can was a must have when our daughter, Kylee called and said she saw it in a store in AZ.
Had to have this one because it was red!
This one because of the shape and embossed writing.
This one because, “why not?” lol!
This one because it was small.
Recently hubby and I went on a weekend trip to Idaho. I spied this little oil can in an antique store. He just grinned and shook his head when I said I wanted to buy it. I mean look how cute it is and I love the red and grey color combination.
Imagine his surprise when I told him that the lady behind the counter told me she collects oil cans too!
This can I bought at a yard sale last year for $2. Isn’t it a sweet shade of blue? Did you notice the tad of rusted patina on the bottom?
My last mini can was given to me by my sil, Dustin. When they were moving to AZ he asked me if I wanted it. What’s not to want? It even has a label. Worn, yes; but still a label.
Wish I could tell you that cans were the only thing I collect. But oh no, you know me too well!
More collections to come. Another one of my collections is a can too! Here’s a hint, they hold water. Like duh, might as well have just said it, right?
I would love to hear what you collect.
Leaving you with some photos of the Spring blooms in my garden.
