This weekend I was helping my mother have a little barn sale, when I rediscovered her vintage salt and pepper shaker collection. She had kept all of her favorites, but couldn't justify holding on to these little beauties.
You might remember that my mother's collections are vast, and I am always trying to help her with a little purge. However, I suddenly recalled Resurrection Fern's lovely thimble vases and went to rescue these little vessels from an imminent sale. I've loved things in miniature form since I was a child and making bouquets, big or small, is always favorite. This 20 minute activity proved to be one of the highlights of my weekend! Sometimes it's the little things...
My daughter loved it for all of the same reasons...gathering beauty in small forms feels so right to children.
What other vessels could you repurpose into mini vases? We're off to search for more. Maybe a glass one like this or even one of these. Please let me know if you come up with some other ideas for holding flowers. Remember to pick an assortment of little blossoms for this tiny project!
