Very into Vases

One thing you can always guarantee finding at any market or thrift store is a vase. They are there in their abundance - the good, the bad and the very ugly. I have dodged many a peach lustre mermaid or mint green swan but wasn't able to resist the following sweet vases...

This beautiful bamboo and ceramic vase was $3 in Red Cross.

This is one of my faves - a lovely wooden organic blobby vase - $4 at a Church sale.

I love the simplicity of this Country Road vase - $2 in Vinnie's.

Another favourite - $2 in Vinnie's.

Don't they make a lovely pair :-)

This teeny tiny bud vase is the most beautiful shade of green - 20 cents in Vinnie's.

These wooden vases work well together - $3 each.

I love the subdued grey shade of this one - 50 cents at a Church sale.

Now all I need is somebody to buy me some flowers ;-)

That is a heck of a lot of vases. Loving the wooden vases - they look very strokable!

I'm looking for somebody to buy me flowers too!

You have a very good eye! These vases all have wonderful shapes and curves. Love the way you displayed them on your mantle.

Absolutely beautiful collection of vaces. AND I am -completely- in love with that art above your fireplace. Is it an original painting?

P.S: I could not find a way to e-mail you. Can you email me at There's an opportunity I wanted to ask you about...

Thank you!
