Vases


While browsing for inspiration, I came across these unusual vases.

How ingenious to make vases  from used light bulbs!



Jars bound to pieces of driftwood.



I really have no idea what this was made from.   Perhaps pieces of  hollow branches, painted white then tied together.   Any clue?



And these:  a wonderful wall display of  hanging jars at various heights from a branch.

All the above images can be located on my Pinterest Page. 


All such cute ideas!    Although I've used pitchers, ice buckets and baskets,  here are a few others.   Mine aren’t new or unusual or even inspired, but I do like them.    

An antique copper kettle I purchased about a
100 years ago for a song.



A coffee can wrapped in burlap and tied together with twine.


And  precious little boy Ropers!  The best part is I know the little feet that walked in these.
 The sweetest!



I hope you will join me for
every Friday beginning September 2.

To my East Coast friends, please stay safe!


Until next time, Honey

  5. I can't imagine sawing the bottoms off lightbulbs without breaking the bulbs themselves, but they sure look cute, as do the other things.

  11. What a fun group of clever vases...the light bulbs especially a bright idea!!! I really enjoyed seeing all of your vase ideas since it's been so hot in Texas, I have no flowers to put in my cowboy boots. Guess a tumble weed or two will have to do. Great post.

  36. The photo of the old light bulbs with flowers in them is genius!! I have been known to use anything that will hold water as a vase ... Frappucino bottles look a LOT like old cream bottles ... it's a shame to throw away something so useful.
