It's rare that I don't try and improve upon something...
Whether it's fashion or decor.
Typically bud vases are used to salvage a broken flower and candles are held in votives or simply left in the vessel they came in....Unless you're me, of course.
I can't leave anything alone.
Maybe because I strive for a unique/ one-of-a-kind look. It's just prettier and more fun when you add your personality and taste!
Plus, I carefully choose my decor...From my silverware to furniture. I have a "Must love it" policy before deciding on it...So why wouldn't I try and use my carefully chosen treasures whenever possible?
I bought this interesting tropical flower from a farmers market this weekend but on the way home it broke from it's stem. I filled a pre-war style champagne glass with water and placed the bud in.
I think it looks even more elegant like this than on its stem bunched in a vase.
