Wana See My Jugs ?

                                                     Surprised smile                                                      



I bet I knew what you were thinking  ?  Get your mind out of the gutter people lol !



I collect all kinds of milk, juice and water jugs . I get them from antique shops , thrift shops and garage sales !


Photo below is a Victorian wash jug and basin made back in the early 1800’s  I haven’t seen another one like it . I have had it for 30 years .













I seem to collect a lot of different things lol I told Papa we will have to get a bigger house soon lol !        

                                                What do you like to collect ?

                                             Until next time  , have a good day !

Hi Elaine..Well first I would have to say "dust" because that's what most of my collectibles have on them ; )
I collect jugs and crocks...the kind that Great Great Great Granddad would have used, some where for liquor, molasses,beer,and the like!!
Those crocks where for anything from salting down meat,pickles ,and making moonshine : )!!
I also have a collection of old oil lamps some hang from the ceiling and some a itty bitty ones...none have been electrified!!
I tell people to be careful when handling because of the antique dust on them LOL
Loved seeing your jugs ; )
Have a great Sunday

What a wonderful collection. I have only a small collection of Eeyore's that were given as gifts, I have too much stuff to have room for a collection, lol.

Lots of nice jugs in that collection. I collect all sorts of things ... teapots, tea spoons, buttons, bird ornaments, bird house ornaments, and more.

I love those jugs!! I have a few myself that I should use more often.

I collect dust and dog hair! :-) Oh, and I also collect Williraye figurines.

Hi Elaine.. Love your collection.. I did that for quite awhile but when I started the shop I placed most of them in it.. I do have a green one like yours that belonged to my Mom.. Love your 1800s one..

Hi Elaine,
I nearly fell out of my chair when I read the post title. Lol. Guttermind indeed. I really like your antique wash jug and basin. I have a reproduction one that I love to look at. I am a collector too. I collect everything it seems. I think I need to cut back and have a yard sale instead of attending so many of them like I do... Have a happy weekend.

Lovely Elaine, I used to have a few jugs myself... I've got a few different collections, but I am trying to purge because my house it too small too... it's hard to do though.... Cheers~
