Glad And Special …Floral Friday

It was time to rearrange and re-stack the storage totes in the basement this week. While doing that chore, I checked the contents of a few of the totes. Thank goodness for that decision because a few vases I haven’t seen in years were revealed. To celebrate the rediscoveries, it seemed like using gladiolus stems might be a good type of flower to link the three project vases.

The two-handled “Southern Living at Home” vase has retro styling and a mellow green faux-aged glaze. The yellow and pink two-tone glad partially frames a nouveau-traditional arrangement.

I had completely forgotten about the light-grey Royal Haeger “swordfish” vase. Two short red gladiolus stems highlight the swept-back styling of the floral elements.

The late 1920s Art Deco glass vase with chrome plated base was one of my very first vintage purchases back in the day. The floral variety is built around a short, white glad stem.

The Blue Jay of Happiness quotes writer Samiha Totanji.
“This is for all those devils that disturbed my soul.
This is for the darkness that dimmed my mornings.
This is for all those twisted hearts that killed the flowers
used to bloom in my chest.
Thank you!
Because of you I could see the light once again, recognize the
good things when I got my eyes on it, and appreciate the right
ones when they finally arrived…”
