I display colored glass vases on the check rails on some of my house’s double hung windows. Tuesday, while gazing out one of the windows,, I noticed that a green “lozenge” shaped vase had gathered dust. It had to be washed. As I dried the vase, I wanted to use it as the base for a dried arrangement. Right then and there I decided to use two more glass containers and make glass the theme of this week’s Floral Friday.
It turned out that the other two vases needed a good scrubbing. While washing and drying them I visualized the end results.
The small, hand painted red Fenton swung vase looks more luxurious because I wound a 20k gold chain around its neck. A springy metal stem echos the metallic theme and crowns the solitary rose.
A medium-size, contemporary, translucent mottled white vase is home to a few stems from a flowering bush. Ikebana is the inspiration for the design.
