If you came to my house right now, you’d see 50′ and 100′ garden hoses strung out all over our front yard and backyard. It drives my husband crazy, but I have no desire to wrangle these unwieldy, slick beasts all the way back to home base when I’m just going to have to pull them out all over again to water the garden the next morning. I’ll admit, though, it looks a little ridiculous to have two giant green mambas strung out in the grass, but I’m not changing my ways. That’s why I was overjoyed when Anna shared with me the chicest garden invention since paisley printed watering cans. I’m talking about Hose Clothes, people.

Water Hose ClothesA sassy leopard print covering for my gangly, green monstrosities? MEOW! We partnered with Dirt Couture (my new favorite online store, btw) to give away one handcrafted and mildew-resistant Leopard garden hose cover. To be entered for a chance to win, simply leave us a comment in the field below before 12/11c Monday, August 29.

This week’s question: What ugly household necessity should Dirt Couture produce covers for next? The boring, black cable TV receiver? Utilitarian washing machines and dryers? How about the metal fuse box?

    I love the air conditioner idea – but what about covers for the pool filter?

    Would love to have a hose that not only waters, but might even scare away some critters that think my garden is their dinner buffet!

    This is an amazing idea!!! Women are always trying to personalize every little thing we can because it makes it fun for us! lol I know a few women who would love getting outside and showing this chic hose cover off when watering the lawn ;)

    We live in an apt at the moment (saving up to buy our own home), and anyone who's lived in an apt and has those ugly stacked washer/dryer units, knows what i'm talking about when I say that making some sort of "cover" for these to spice them up and personalize them would be amazing!! Can't wait to see what other things they come up with!!!!

    Very cute idea! I would love to cover my ac unit outside. An inside I would cover my washer and dryer for sure to make them look great.
