fresh cut flowers

I love having fresh cut flowers in the house... especially when I get to display them in my vintage 1950s head vase. The flowers make it look like she is wearing one big crazy hat. After searching around on the internet, I found a site (headvasemuseum.com) that has an archive and history of all different kind of head vases... apparently they are quite collectible. Unfortunately, mine is missing her lovely pearl drop earrings... but I love her anyways... she looks like she knows she has an awesome hat, and couldn't give a hoot about her lost earrings.

That is a really cool vase! I have never seen one like it, what a very cute idea. And if you ever do start giving a hoot about her missing earrings, let me know and I'll make her some new ones! :-)

I love having fresh flowers to and just brought in lilacs but they've faded quite quickly. They'd probably have more will to last longer if they were in such a cool vase!
