Test Tubing

A perfectly rusty crusty test tube holder and four vintage test tubes have been turned into a display for flowers.  I hand stamped a little birdie onto each test tube and made a tag that reads "THRIVE" out of vintage pants drawstring material to give it a little extra flair.  I was thinking this could also be used in the office with paperclips and other small things in the tubes and pens, markers, scissors and such in the other openings.
