This washerwoman stays in my garden all summer washing the clothes. It's great fun to watch her scrub when the wind blows. The kids alway get a kick from it. It was made in Spofford, NH at Walston Woodwork. They sell many different styles and I think I need another!

    Thanks. No, those are zucchini that have taken over my garden. I have many recipes I have developed to use them up!

    I remember seeing that one also, Steeltoad63. Someone also had one with a donkey kicking a man in the backside everytime the spinner went round!
