I have a collection of cream coloured bottles and jars that I often use as vases - I also often use them as props - sometimes empty sometimes filled with something interesting.
The bottle on the left is an old sake bottle that I never had the heart to throw away and I have kept over many years.
A few of them are French honey and mustard jars bought over time and then also used as vases. Others are vintage jars and bottles bought at London antique markets for a few pounds. It's a great feeling to recycle beautiful object of really no monetary value.
Here is an antique Dundee Marmalade jar and some others that I don't know what they were used for. All have that distinctive crazing and beautiful patina that happens to old china.
What holds the collection together is that they are all of a similar colour and I thought it would be fun to feature them in my series - Vases, Vessels and Vintage.
The cream colour is very easy to combine with all kinds of different coloured flowers. The one that I have used to make the flower arrangement in is one of the old French mustard jars. The flowers I have used are five pink tulips, five pink hyacinths and a few stems of Eucalyptus leaves.
This is the second in the series called Vases, Vessels and Vintage - the first one was called Kähler Vase and Grass.
Have a Wonderful Floral Day!
