Mother's day promises

I treated the MOTHER OF MY DOG and cat to the best of everything yesterday AND there will be more to come:  she said vaguely the other day "this watering can STINKS...could you make me one???" and there is only one way to answer that:  with silence!  The wheels begin to turn and you think "well, if I made an elephant creamer-pitcher (more on that this week) with a watering can spout....HUZZAH!"

SO, yesterday I am sneaking around and having fun listening to noisy rock and roll and produce.....THIS.

That is very cute. What a lot of work went into that!

Now that's a cool way to celebrate mothers day!

Waiting to see it glazed!

Michèle Hastings said...

How unique! Everyone will want one.

Barbara Rogers said...

That is the cat's meow, sorry Spike. Well, it is definitely a superior watering can! Whoo hoo!

I love it! Think you'll sell them in your Etsy shop??

Trudy said...

It's lovely, but can she lift it?

I was thinking about the selling part, as in "this thing is so big and so much work went into it, we are talking, like, a 70 dollar watering can" :)

Busy Bee Suz said...

Oh my dumbo...that is the cutest little watering guy ever!

Hilary said...

That's brilliant.. and so very cute.

Karen (formerly kcinnova) said...

I'm glad you honor the mother of your furry children. :)

Claudia from Idiot's Kitchen said...

Yes, everyone WILL want one. I think you'd better prepare yourself for that! Fabulous!

BSOB said...

Whoa Dude, this rocks, Elephants would be proud

TexWisGirl said...

congrats on your POTW, too!

Joanna Jenkins said...

Whoa! That is one awesome watering can!!!

Congrats on your POTW from Hilary.

Oh my, so cute! What does it weigh? Could a person take one home as carry-on luggage on a plane? Perhaps a cat watering can? Thinking ahead to my June trip....Ithaca is still on the list but I think Syracuse has been replaced by Troy.
