This vintage medical water pitcher is one of my favorite junk pieces.  The old label on the front says SCHOOL OF NURSING.
I hung the vintage syringe on the handle of the pitcher.  A red cross image is used as a get well note.
When Georgia told me she had a vintage syringe I knew I had to have it.  A package of LIFESAVERS fits perfectly inside the syringe case (a little junk fun!).

I used a vintage medical water pitcher and vintage syringe with case (courtesy of Georgia) to create this lively little get well bouquet.

Janis, now that’s a great vintage water pitcher. Who wouldn’t feel better receiving a gift like this. My god that syringe looks like something you would frost a cake with. Look at the SIZE of that thing!

I almost freaked out as much as JennyK…almost.

georgiamoon writes: Janis, what a great and creative idea to put the medical items together to make a charming "Get Well" bouquet. It is lovely and would make anyone feel better...especially if they knew they didn't have to get a shot with THAT syringe. Still a little scary to me. Interesting, but scary. I'm glad to see that you are getting some use out of it and the Nursing School pitcher is to die for. Love it, Georgia Posted: 11:28 pm on August 12th

Absolutely wonderful. LOVE the uniqueness of the piece. Even the Lifesavers are a good addition to the theme. gailmarie Posted: 7:48 pm on August 12th
