Galvenzied Thingies

Coloradolady welcomes you to the first November Vintage Thingies Thursday. Please take the time to visit for a great vintage feature.
Back in 1990, while working in Dallas, there was a big flood. This bucket was given out as reminder of this terrible occasion.

This is just a plain old galvanized bucket I picked up somewhere.

This is a vintage (White) mop bucket with wooden rollers. I have had this since the 1960's. It would still get the job done, but it definitely is not used by me anymore.

This is a very old Rain Bird small, lawn sprinkler.

Hi LV,
Love your galvanized treasures, especially the lawn sprinkler. The buckets are so charming too. Thanks for sharing them with us and have a great rest of the week.

Hi LV, your vintage items are fun to see. I am quite disappointed that you don't use the wash bucket. Smile.
Happy days to you my sweet friend.
Love, Jeanne

The wash bucket hurts my back just looking at it! LOL The flood bucket is haunting but neat "souvenir."

Great vintage finds. I wish I had the mop bucket for my string mop. The wooden rollers look the best.

I just found three plastic buckets I have for mopping! They were hidden away! I like the galvanized bucket better. I was on vacation in 1965 when a huge flood hit my hometown. I am afraid of large bodies of water so I am very glad I was away. But the devastation is still clear in the minds of many who lost loved ones.
I am glad you are back!

Those buckets are handy...and cute too!

I would like to invite you to my weekend linkup. It involves anything related to homemaking: recipes, sewing, decorating, crafts, DIY, a story about what you did today, etc! There’s a button at the top of my sidebar you can grab to help you to remember to come back each week.

Love these! I found a galvanized bucket at an estate sale that said "The Mrs. Keep your cotton pickin' hands off!" I bought it of course. That woman was a kindred spirit.

Hi LV, I love the old galvanized buckets. I even love the new ones but the old ones are so full of character. Great collection.
Great Halloween post, looks like you had plenty of decorations and spooks in Colorado.
Have a great evening LV.
