Trash Talk


This decorative Turquoise trash can was sitting outside of the Red Cat Antiques from last Saturday's post. I thought it would be more suited for a garden but it was still being used as a trash can.

Allison said...

Hey, this is a great idea! I have jars of old buttons, and I could surely find an old flower pot for the kids to decorate in this fashion. This is wonderful. Thanks!

If I ever put one like that outside the condo in lieu of the horrors we have, I think it would be gone in 5 minutes!

Wow, that is a great arty trash can!! I would be anxtious it might get stolen... but it would be easy to spot who stole it.. :)

Wie man doch sochen "unschönen" Dingen wie einer Mülltonne noch etwas schönes abgewinnen Kann.
Nice design!!! Greetings

A very creative and ornate trash can!

Kathy said...

I love it! Is turquoise the official color of Santa Fe? If not, it should be.

Randy, I'll just call you Hawkeye from now on. That indeed was a Singing in the Rain Poster. Another one just around the corner before you would enter the door was African Queen.

Even such a trivial object could be nice! Weldone, Randy!

Truly creative trash can!

From the looks of things, a timely treasure. It's a wonder someone hasn't stolen it yet. But I guess the time was not right.

Okay, I'm through. Nice find, Randy. Hope you have a great day!

(Those are watches attached to the can, right?)

Wow!

Carola said...

Normaly I wouldn't say a trash can is beautiful, but this is. Wonderful blue. It's an eye catcher.

Sharon said...

Wow, that's a work of art!

Lúcia said...

If I saw one these somewhere I would hava doubts if it was really a trash can. ;-)

Magpie said...

Too pretty for trash! What a great find.

Jarart said...

Wouldn't it be great if everyone turned their old tin trash can into a work of art!! Great find, Randy.

It's nice that they dress it up a little bit. I do agree, it would fit well in a garden.

Woot! If I lived nearby...I would have to admit I'd be tempted to run with that can!
It's a beauty:)

JM said...

The coolest trash can I've seen. I bet it would last just one night here, the next day it was 'gone with the wind'! :-)

Kate said...

Turquoise is definitely the colour of choice!!

Carola Bartz said...

Gorgeous trash can! Lovely to see how trash can be so beautiful.

I see this done here too, but inside cans not outside ones.

Halcyon said...

Ha ha! I like the title today.
Do you think I could find a bin like that somewhere? Love it!

We could do with colourful rubbish bins here to cheer up our gloomy winters.
