a wonderful gift....

Todays mail was very exciting....as today I received this fabulous watering can and pair of urns from Catherine. Catherine found the pair of urns on-line and knew I would love them, but the waterine can she made herself in metal.Catherine featured the watering can on her blog,
http://kilmouskiandme.blogspot.com/ when she made it and I was blown away by it then, but to have it in my hands and see the detail, scale and finish is so wonderful! I thank you very very much Catherine, it shall be an item I cherish for ever. I only hope that my phoos have done justice to your work.
