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?

    love, love, love the hose. Seeing this just makes your imagination go wild with all the items outside that will soon need to be covered. I would like to see a pool cover make of some fun fabric.
    Now pick me as the winner of this fun item!!!!!

    I would like to see some decorative hose reels. I love the fact that they can be reeled in & out of sight, but hate to look at the bulky tan reel box. But then again, if I had a gorgeous hose cover like this one, I wouldn't have to reel it in! lol
