Red Vases …Floral Friday

The cold but bland stretch of Autumn has arrived in the Great Plains. It’s time to bring out the glowing warmth of red containers. They add some visual enhancement to the home.

A mid-century vintage Anchor-Hocking ruby red vase moors a handful of stems with yellow blossoms. The balance between structured and freestyle shapes gives the composition life.

I had to bring out the big ol’ “O” vase. Light green daisy mums in the vase opening add a touch of whimsy.

A contemporary, cylindrical glass vase collects the elements of this modern Ikebana. The overarching idea is energetic serenity.


The Blue Jay of Happiness quotes astronomer/electrical engineer, Steven Magee. “I improved my sleeping circadian rhythm with red and infrared light exposures.”

  1. Nice! πŸ™‚
    autumn is my favorite season!
    I kind of like all of them, actually, for their change and contrast. You know?
    I like the cold bluster of fall with its warming bread and soup and holidays. Cozy.
    Winter is what MAKES spring so eternally refreshing and WONDERFUL, you know?
    Summer is wonderful too with its life-giving sunshine 🌞.
    I love your flowers πŸ’ and funky vases.
    Imagining them in your tidy organized basement. 🌻

  2. Real good. You don’t see a giraffe on a table every day, but it’s right at home. Ditto for a big O.
