My new ‘Fringe USA’-esque vase

I finally caved and bought myself a $12 bunch of cherry blossoms branches at the local grocers here in the Blue Mountains.

These blooms somehow last longer than most other branches and I am so happy with them.

Stupid silly me, I sold my one large pastelly pink vase at the recent garage sale so I had to go get myself another large vase. I got one for $5 at the local St Vinnies store which did the job but looked completely ICKY.

But today I had to pick up a wigwam for my daughter from Bed, Bath and Table here and found they had 15% off storewide! So I happily paid less for my wigwam than RRP and picked myself an early birthday present, a glass Fringe USA-esque vase.

These are my favourite Fringe USA vases.

I first fell in love with them via Ruby and Rose Interiors‘ online store a year ago, but due to their prices I couldn’t afford them (not to mention shipping for such a heavy item!). The beautiful pieces of glassware are fired at 180˚C with a thin layer of lacquer applied over the decals to protect them.

This is my new vase, the Walnut Bird.

Tip!

Place a rubber band around your vase to prevent ants from getting there.

Makes me so happy and it invites Spring 2011 in! :)
