While at my parents' house, I had a chance to sketch something belonging to my mother. She has had this sprinkler since I was little and uses it to sprinkle water onto clothes before ironing them. It is a simple thing, but something about the thick green glass of the old Coke bottle and the dented aluminum cap strikes me as really homey and well used.

My mother had that exact same thing and has been searching for years for another one-- The bottle isn't so hard, but where do you get the sprinkler top-- homey dents and all!?!
