My Favorite Vases

If you've been reading this blog or followed me over from My Wren's Nest blog, there's no way that you can miss that I LOVE flowers. They just make me happy. Over the years, I've collected many vases, but it seems like there are two that I find myself filling time and time again.

In fact, I have 3 or 4 of the hobnail milk glass vases (all the same) just in case I happen to break one. It's the perfect vase for the tall wild looking arrangements that I like to put together and the white color sets off every flower that goes into it.

This is actually one of my most favorite arrangements. I gathered a little of this and a little of that and just kept adding. I love the odd combination of the Autumn Joy Seedum and the small cabbage with the old fashioned Snapdragons and a touch of Bovardia. And roses are always good.... pretty.

My blue vase is a bit taller and the perfect color of blue pottery. It's a nice heavy vase that can handle the heavy blooms or large branches of the cuttings I like to take around the house. Just got it out and filled it this last week with lilacs....

Such a happy maker. What about you? Do you have a favorite vase that you find yourself filling again and again?
