Vintage Garden Stuff: July Edition

Bad to the phloem!

What a month for junking! I’ve lucked into a few really amazing finds this July.

First, I found these vintage manure bags.

I know, I know. Nothing about manure bags screams “Hang me above your velvet sofa!” but…

They’ve never been used and I love the graphics so, why not?

This photo blows because I snapped it with my Blackberry- I left my camera cable at work

you know you're green with envy

C'mon, admit that it's awesome...

And then today- I ran into these bottles of fish emulsion from the 60’s. I scored 10 of them for $1 each. I’m either going to put them in my china hutch or line them up along my mantle. I love the graphics, again- and thankfully… they have been “de-odorized”


Fuzzy photos will be replaced in Aster-time

I’m working on a vintage sprinkler addiction too.

Have I gone too far?
