Vintage Thingie Thursday - Vintage Wash Tub in the Garden

Thank you Suzanne over at ColoradoLady Blog for hosting Vintage Thingie Thursday!

Today I am posting a picture of an old Vintage Wash Tub with a old Vintage Wringer that I have in the garden. Every year I plant annuals in it. The Wringer has a date stamped in the wood from the 1890's on it. I bought it years ago at a sale up in the Mountains.

I have ALWAYS wanted one of these...I found one a few years ago at a flea market, did not want to carry it around, went back to buy it and it was gone...it was cheap too....yours is lovely...I love the flowers.

Have a great VTT and a wonderful weekend.

Love it all planted. Can you imagine the work our grandmothers had to do just to do some laundry? I'm glad I don't have to. Mimi

Ah - - - I remember taking BATHS in an old wash tub like that when I was a kid and our house didn't HAVE a bathtub!!!! Fortunately, my parents DID NOT "run me through the wringer" to dry me off!

Love this photo! So lovely. After housing dirty clothes, I can imagine that tub is happy as a clam with beautiful flowers spilling over its side!
