Flower Vase

Hey there everyone! It is time for my first post…whose excited?! I am!

Since we have moved into our house (almost 2 years ago) I have been meaning to find some vases or baskets of some kind to put some fake flowers in to decorate our house with. Now I am all for real flowers, I love when Hubby brings home some pretty flowers for me to have. But let’s face it they only survive so long, no matter how diligently you water them. And yes I do water them every night, even though Hubby says that I just eventually kill all the flowers. Back to the project…So my Mom was cleaning some stuff around her house and she found this pink fiesta type vase and she asked if I wanted it, I said yes.

At first I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with it and then I thought hey that could look cute with some fake flowers in it and I could put that in the bathroom by the tub so that when I take a bath I have something pretty to look at. So I happened to be at Michaels (a very dangerous store for me to go into, because I will buy EVERYTHING!) and they had their flowers for 50% off so I thought why not grab a couple and see how they look. So I found me three pretty flowers that I thought would look good in the vase, a purple, red, and yellowish white one.

The Flowers

I first tried to cut the stems down with some regular scissors not knowing that they had some wire in them so off I went into Hubby’s office, where he is working on making his own Quad Copter or something and found myself a better cutting tool. It took some grunting on my part and the clasping of both hands on it but I finally got the flowers cut the the length that I wanted them to. I must say I am pretty happy with the finished product.

I know it isn’t something huge, but since I have been trying to do this for almost 2 years now it was a pretty big deal for me. Especially since I have the habit of coming up with tons of ideas and never doing them. Hubby was pretty impressed with the flowers and I think he wants me to put them somewhere they can be seen more instead of just by the tub where I am usually the only one who sees them.

I hope you enjoyed my first post and that I get some regular readers/followers. Please comment!
