Pink Sat, a talk with myself, and a watering can

Beverly at How Sweet the Sound is hosting Pink Saturday. Since I've been participating in this, I am always looking for something pink to photograph and write about...and I'm always looking for something for my screen porch.
I found this pink watering can at Tuesday Morning. So I bought it and killed two birds with one stone as the old saying goes!

I didn't buy it at first. Have you ever seen something, not bought it, then went back later and bought it? That's exactly what I did. I had a conversation with myself about the watering can. It went something like this:
  • you're only buying this because it's pink
  • well, it really is cute and would look cute on the porch
  • well, why don't you just think about it, and come back
  • if it's not there when you go back, it's not meant to be
  • oh, there it is...guess you should treat yourself to it!
When my daughter saw it, I thought she would say something about how cute it was. I wasn't sure if she liked it or not. She just looked at it and said.."but you really don't like purses that much do you?"
So, whether she likes it, you like it, or anyone likes's mine now and happily perched on a table on the screened porch. The only thing that is important is that I like it! Right?
Hope everyone has a happy Pink Saturday! And, go out and buy yourself something pink.
Thanks Beverly for all your effort!

I love that watering can...and I'm not a fan of purses :) I would have bought that can even if it didn't hold water LOL!

I always have those conversations with myself. The hardest part is if you have the conversation and allow yourself to buy it and you go back and find it gone.

Nice purchase.

take care,

Diane, I 100% agree with your method of rationalization.

It's a watering can, it's a purse, it's pink, it's pretty, and you wanted it. I believe that covers all of the requirements.

Happy Pink Saturday!!!

That is so true! I have done the same thing, talk to myself, leave the store and return later. The can is too cute.

Mya said...

That is so funny. Yes I have done that so many times. I will think about what I didn't buy until I go back and get it or it drives me crazy. I think it is adorable.

Diane, I absolutely adore the pink watering can! You have marvelous taste. I need some items on my porch. Just got 2 small chairs and a small's bare. Of course, I still need to finish my landscaping, but I've been too sick lately. (sigh)

Nevertheless, you made a GREAT choice. =-D

Oh how unique!!!! I ove it and I am not a 'pink' person! lol (all though Beverly keeps telling me I have more pink than I think! lol) I loved the post on rescued plants and the black pots and the end results were beautiful! Have a great weekend girl!

I love your pink watering can, too! I love impulse buying. My first hunch about something is almost always the right one and I almost ALWAYS regret it when I pass something up I had a "hunch" on! Very good selection!

Happy Pink Saturday!

I love that pink watering can Diane! It's adorable! I do that all the time..walk by something...then talk myself (not outloud..well maybe alittle!) into buying it!

Diane, a pink watering can, I adore it. I have watering cans and I am always using my juice container to water my plants. Now I know why. I wasn't motivated to use just any watering can. I need a pink purse watering can. Smile! Good for you for buying something that caught your eye and the pinkness of it didn't hurt.

Think pink, Jeanne

Well, I like it. I think it's darling and I'm happy you got it. If it makes you smile then it was worth every penny you paid.

Hi Diane! I absolutely love it! It is quirky which I always like. Sometimes daughters just don't get it. I have had that same conversation many times on a daily basis and have wasted time and gas going back to get something! Enjoy it, Jeannette

It's so cute Diane! I love the shape and it looks big enough to hold a good anmount aof water so it's functional.

I often have "talks" with myself about buying things also!

Hugs, Pat

I love it! I think it is so adorable, and I would love to have one for MY screened in deck! In fact, I know a few people who would love to receive one of those for a gift, I just may do some Christmas shopping early! Thanks for sharing it with us!
