I didn't know they existed........miniature vases

I had always thought it was a good idea......but I had no idea someone actually thought of it. For some time I have used small votive candle holders for smaller type flowers with short stems, or even for a small flower or two. But even then, a votive candle holder didn't always work.

Today, while browsing through quite a nice store with of the neater knick knacks of the world, I found these; one and a half inch miniature vases. The pic doesn't give these half the justice they deserve, but let me tell you, I went to buy one, and then thought, geez, I really should get two.

They really are the coolest little knick knacks I have seen for indoor plant fanatics in a long time. I have always wanted small mini vases, for say the odd African Violet flower you want to show off, or the odd short stemmed flower you want to pick outside. Not only are they a perfect size, but since they are vase like at the top, they keep the small flowers centered, and in a bouquet-esque bunch.

I am so happy to have found them, and I couldn't wait to show them off to people that would actually appreciate them.......the family I was with at the time, thought I was nuts, like they always do when I talk plants.

Dropping by to let you know that I mentioned your blog today on my blog, though it's hard to explain what the "mention" involves. The relevant post is this one.
