I decided to use whatever I grabbed at random from a storage tote from the basement. One of the plastic container lids on the bottom of one stack was pushed slightly in due to the weight of the other totes, so I rescued the tote and selected three vases from the container. I had no idea what was chosen because I didn’t undo the bubble wrap until I set them down upstairs. All three ended up being made of glass.
Two stems of blossoms are at home in the weighted-base bud vase. Nearby are a folding purse hook and an antique Ingersoll-Yankee pocket watch.
I was in the mood to display some fabulous fake pink tulips anyway, so why not present them in a mid-20th century, Italian Empoli art glass vase? An opal sphere sits atop an accompanying antique candle holder.
A rocking glass dragon guards a solitary poppy. The yellow container is a contemporary art glass handkerchief vase.
