This intricately carved cigar box makes the perfect bud vase!
An old brass shell casing holds silk flowers year round.
I have a zillion wooden spools, so I decided to make a few of them into silk flower vases.
An old flour sifter sits in my kitchen window and makes a great container for flowers.
I was originally told this was an old bed warmer. Its dated March 4, 1915. I guess it could be a canteen? Not really sure, but it does hang on the wall and is home to a few silk flowers...

Just a few of the things that have become vases at my house. Seems like almost anything can become a lamp, a clock or a vase!!
