These two items were at the recycle place. I couldnt see them going to scrap so I rescued them. The tea cart had black chippy paint on top of white chippy paint.  The watering can will stay as is.
I have the rusty, chippy painty stuff in my front yard but the back yard is more whimsical. Now Ive got an Alice in Wonderland thing going on so I painted the tea cart bright pink. But when it starts to get chippy it will start showing the black and white with pink paint. Awesome. I added a plate and tea set so Ill be ready if Johnny Depp drops in (hes the Mad Hatter in the movie). :) The concrete mushrooms in the background had ORANGE chippy paint from when my mother painted them in the 70s. Now theyre more whimsical.
The green object was bought at an estate sale for $5. I kept eyeing it and my husband said it was to hold oxygen bottles. Well I dont need oxygen (well, I guess I do but not in a bottle) so I told him I liked it for the color. Ive already used it to hold flowers in at a birthday party. But Im sure Ill come up with other ideas. And thats just another picture of the FREE watering can.

Here are a few things I got to work on while it WASN'T raining. And I'm headed to Round Top Antique weekend tomorrow. I'd rather make stuff then pack any way. So if any one is going to be at the antique weekend let me know.
