Flowers in Vintage Containers


My daughter picked up a $6 bouquet at the grocery store and made an arrangement for each room in the house, using some of our vintage pieces.

  1. Wow, those went a long way, didn’t they! I really love that first pitcher. I used to collect ball pitchers, and I had several flat ones like that, too. That one is particularly nice.

  2. I love these old containers. I have some old bud vases that once belonged to my mother. This spring I’ve been regularly filling them with daffodils, grape hyacinyths, and other spring flowers –and they really brighten my house.

  3. I have a blue refrigerator jug like that. It was something I bought at a yard sale before I was married. I just liked the color. I guess they have value. Mine still has the cork around the stopper. I enjoyed your pictures of vases.
