That’s Some Big Old Garden Urns

raorback, quilts, quilt camp 040One of the stops we made was at a doctor’s house right outside of Jackson. He had posted on Craig’s List a pair of huge garden urns for sale. The guy I was with was going to check them out for a friend of his. Well, when we got there they were out in a side field close to the fence. They were rusty and were really big. You couldn’t tell how really big they were until you got right up on them. They were HUGE!!! Ten and a half feet tall and 4 feet across the rim. Now I have never seen anything like these in that size. The doctor paid a bunch of money for the years ago and he wanted a fortune for them now. But, that was their business. I was just along for the see. You can see my friend behind the urn and he’s over 6 feet tall. Those were whoppers.urn 2Urn 1
