My favorite things to use as vases are not made of lead crystal or fine porcelain.
My favorite things are old mason jars, sturdy stoneware crocks or shapely bottles.
I found this vintage soda bottle in an antique store for three dollars.
It totally completes this vignette on my mantel, in my opinion.
Limonata lemonade can be found in 6 packs at World Market.
After we drank the lemonade, a summer or two ago, I kept the bottles.
A yellow rose from the backyard plopped in this Limonata bottle
looks like a match made in heaven on my kitchen windowsill.
Not all labels are this cute, but if a salad dressing or olive oil bottle are shapely,
soak them in hot water and scrub the label off.
A new vase might be right in your pantry.
Well, it's almost Friday, friends.
Have a HAPPY, HAPPY Friday
and a BLESSED weekend!
