Glassy …Floral Friday

For the final Floral Friday of 2021 I wanted to utilize three of my current favorite glass containers. So, the cobwebs were removed; the containers were soaked; and finally were polished dry with a microfiber cloth.

The fire-orange Blenko bottle received first dibs. Beach sand was poured in as the mechanical stabilizer. Then a weathered elm twig came into play as the armature to brace the arrangement.

A golden spray of small flowers completes a swung vase by an unknown glassworks company. The warm tones add visual warmth to the chilly year-end climate.

A contemporary variation of the chemistry flask displays a rich, red magnolia solitaire.

Have a safe and happy New Years.

The Blue Jay of Happiness quotes ancient Athenian orator and statesman, Demosthenes. “As a vessel is known by the sound, whether it be cracked or not; so men are proved, by their speeches, whether they be wise or foolish.”
