water can dressings

After reading a few lucky blogger’s raves about Terrain this last week, I had to peek into their new collection. While browsing I happened upon this very pretty watering can. Although, I would never think to buy a pure polished copper watering can, it did spark an idea…

I used our own (not so pretty, but clean) watering can to douse out a bit of dressing on an afternoon snack. Splendid! It worked and made a simple snack seem quite festive. It would be an adorable idea for a shower, or in multiples on tables for a spring wedding, even for tomorrow nights late summer dinner party (so fun!). I’m off to find myself much prettier cans to set out on the table.

    What a cute idea! I have seen some adorable watering cans, but this black thumb would never think of why I would need to own one. Love it!

    This is such a darling little can, and it’s just perfect for dressings! What a divine addition to a snack!

    The dressing must look so pretty flowing through the watering can holes!!! But be careful…you know how a lot of products say “not for food” etc.?

    WOW -I recently bought this very watering can at a second hand store for $10.00 – pricey for a used can, but knew this one was special! I have not, however, used it for salad dressing, although it’s small enough and certainly lovely enough to be table- worthy!
