No, no flowers here the gardens in the central USA! How about you? Right about this time of year we usually suffer snow on the ground, but seems global warming is in our favour this winter. All the recent snow and ice has disappeared, but we are doomed for more I am sure! Every thing in the garden is brown and dismal.

I thought you would be tickled with that spiral thing! You seem to have a flare for the unique! I am pretty sure it is blown glass...kind of looks like a test tube that went awry! I can only get a single bud in it. Another treasure found at a garage sale for five cents!

My actual fav of that group is the white crackle bud vase in the back. Followed by that green vase. I get the most use out of those two come daffodil time! Daffs in the spring just something I adore! ANd at daff time, I alwasy end up breaking out theemason jars because I become very short on vases!


I absolutely love your half and half vase on the other thread! That is so gloriously unusual! I am into earthy colors.

Im still digging for the mcCoys...seems that has got me behind in putting Christmas away so ya'll are going to have to bare with me! I have a lovely frog by McCoy! It has got to be my absolute most favored of the Macs! And I ran into my bridal treasures and well, you have seen one thing leading to another around here!

So whats your next treasure??

I was thinking, could you get a freesia bulb in there? fill the bottom bit with stones, watch the bulb grow in the spiral thing!

BUD vases!! everyone laughed at me when I didn't know what a bud vase was when I first started posting LOL.
Oh yes my half an half vase, that one is very tall, so I need long stems for that. Glad you like it, Thanks for reminding me I have it!!!

There's not much going on in my garden, greenery and a few chinese lanterns still hangin' on.
Snowdrops are usually the first to flower here, around the end of the month.

I like teapots!! although I don't drink tea, but they make good vases for our cafe'. Got any teapots??
This one has it's own cup underneath.

Here's another of my little-used vases. It's very small, 6", and doesn't hold much water. It's metal with silver plate. My boss gave it to me when she was clearing out her family's house many years ago. Her FIL was a two-time nobel prize winner, so it has a little provenance. I hope it doesn't loose anymore of it's silver plating.

Well, the good news is is the McCoys did not go out with the trash. The bad news is is they are tucked in the farthest corner of the storage room behind a huge pile of other things that I cannot move. OY.. Well thankfully we found them.

Guess I will be trying out that bow maker today though.. my luck, I found some ribbon!

Hi Sally, Thank you! How are you? We haven't heard from you for ages!
Did you take any pictures of your other vases yet?
I must do some underwater arrangements soon, they are such fun to make.
Have you made any recently?

Blossom, nice vases! I love the red and blue ones.

Terri, I am much better today so far. Hubby and I went to do errands, to lunch and then to the Art Museum. I will take a nap with my little doggie soon.

Hubby will have to plant some flowers for me late this evening, ha. I will supervise.

Hi Blossom, all nice vases, like the shape of the plasic ones. The little bud vase on the right is quite unusual!
Lucky you! nice friend you've got, Thanks.

Hi Sally, glad you are feeling a little better and had a nice day out. What flowers have you got for hubby to plant?

Nice finds! Good you have a good storage place.

Hubby just took out some dead or not happy flowers and put down some pretty mulch. He will plant the Vinca we bought a couple of weeks ago. Tomorrow eve.

I was out trimming and helping a bit. I had to come in, just felt bad out there. I was supervising and he kept saying, bye... see ya.. thought you were going inside. HA! I am really picky. I love to do it myself and hate to see things I would do so perfectly, ha. :) It looks nice. He had to sweep also, now he is back inside getting clean. He is very sweet.
