Alphabet Challenge V - Vase

The letter
today is



is for
VASE


NOUN
vases (plural noun)

  1. a decorative container, typically made of glass or china and used as an ornament or for displaying cut flowers.


Here is a vase I purchased for
a dollar at the Dollar Tree.
With a rubber band and a can
of frosted spray I made it
a bit more decorative.


Here a shorter version of the
one above.


Jars make good vases.


The descript of a vase
says that basically an type
of glass containers can be
used as a vase.


Even just a simple litter
jar.

But apparently even a metal
pitcher can be used as a vase.



Decorative painted vases
are really pretty.
Painted this one of a
6x6 piece of tile and it
sits to this day in my
older brothers home.


These next vases are some of my
favs. I was introduced to a local metal
artist here in Tennessee a few years back.
His name is Major Hall. An amazing man.
Check out his work here.


Anyway in his home he has two
very cool vases that he made.



At this point I am thinking that you can
use just about anything as
as a
VASE.

Thanks for stopping in on
the V day,

I love that first one. You did that yourself? I heard that was a pretty easy project. It turned out great.

Yep, anything that holds water ... or not. :-)

Since I don't have any fancy vases I've always had to improvise when I've gotten flowers. So long as it held water it was good enough for me

My new friend, Pam, girl is there anything that you can't do? You are amazing!

And, now I'm gonna want to try the frosted glass using a rubber band! :)

We don't have many vases in our house, I'm not sure why. You've got some nice ones.
