Today’s projects began with my decision to clean and polish a vintage Indian brass vase. After four applications and buffings, the vase looked presentable again. The two remaining vases were slightly dirty but cleaned up in a jiffy. Assembling flower projects in clean vases is an activity I enjoy.
The brass vase now contains a mixture of camilias and roses with a duo-tonal theme.
A blue, art-glass cruet-shaped bud vase contains a ball-type dahlia and bud. Sand was added to provide stability and weight.
A striped, ceramic department store vase displays two varieties of lilies.
The Blue Jay of Happiness quotes George Orwell. “It was a bright, cold day in April, and the clocks were striking thirteen.”
