The Old Watering Can

The Old Watering Can
Love this


A hand-stitched textile miniature mounted onto greeting card, a gift in itself to keep (and frame?) as well as a card in which to write your message. I have cut the tiny applique watering can by hand and stitched it into position with the addition of embroidered details. A little robin perches on the handle and I have embroidered little flowers. My cards measure 12 x 9 cm and come with matching recycled paper envelopes in clear protective cellophane sleeves. Each card is signed on the front and my studio stamp is on the back. Cards are made from stout 100% recycled card - blank inside. This card is suitable for many different occasions. Postage for additional cards only 20p per card.


Here in my own cottage garden I have a few of these old galvanised cans, and love the look of them. Some have holes in the bottom, but they still look lovely, and can rest out their days amongst the flowers - a fitting retirement for all their long years of service!
