Wow Us Wednesdays 11 and My Fresh Cut Flowers

4.20.2011

Hello everyone and welcome to party #11. I can't wait to see what you have to wow us with this week, but before you do I want to show you a new flower vase I ordered a few days ago and how I filled it with flowers from my yard.


 This is the picture of the vase that I ordered on the website since I forgot to take a picture before I started filling it with flowers. Isn't this neat? It is actually a blogger that sells these. Mary Ann of Verbena Cottage has a shop on her blog now. I just discovered it the other day and when I saw this I  had to have it.


It just happens that the only flowers I have in my yard right now is verbena. How appropriate since the vase is from Verbena Cottage Shop.


I planted these flowers last August and they have gone crazy this year.






I just love how this vase looks old and worn on the metal and handles and it comes with the flower frog for easy arranging.






Now I want to see what you have to wow us with!

Post edit: it looks like that vase is sold out. I don't even see it on her site anymore and another blogger said she believes she purchased the last one. Farmhousewares.com on my sidebar has one like it that has three sections. Here is the link farmhousewares.com
Just found a vase just like mine at this website and it is cheaper, too. http://www.timeless-settings.com/home-decor/decorative-accents.html.

  1. Wow! I adore that vase! Going to have to head over and take a 'look-see'! The Verbena is gorgeous -- I've never planted it so I'm thinking I have to check it out and see if it will tolerate horrid Chicago winters! Thanks for hosting!

  20. Kim, the verbena is a gorgeous color. Isn't it a good feeling to be able to go out to one's garden and snip a few blooms to bring into the house? That's a great idea for a vase. I have some vintage jars with flower frog lids that are similar. I'll check out Verbena Cottage. ~ Sarah

  66. Oh my goodness. All these years I thought those were my purple garden phlox! Go figure - I had to double check by researching online and they really are Verbena! So I guess I had Verbena all these years and never knew it. That vase is so perfect for them, I need one!

  71. I love your new vase. In fact, as I started reading, I thought that I'd order 2. One for myself, and one for my mom for Mother's Day. Bummer that they're sold out =(

    ReplyDelete
  72. I absolutely adore your vase. Have been eyeing something very similar for a while :-)

  73. That is a cute, cute, cute piece Kim and your flowers look fantastic in it. Thanks for hosting the party each week and for sharing your new flower vase/holder/frog.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Wow Kim, you started an avalanche of demands for that vase. It is so unusual, antique-looking, and useful! Wish I could get one. They seem to be sold out in both places. Linda

    ReplyDelete
  75. I love your vase...it is perfect for any wildflowers that you might have growing. Your verbena color is so vibrant...gorgeous!

    ReplyDelete
  76. You always find the cutest things! I just ordered one. I'm going to send a picture to my sister to see if she wants one. Her birthday is Monday.
    Thank you for hosting. I'm not linking up this week...busy!

  77. Hi Kim, craziest thing! I checked Timless-settings and they were "out of stock". For some reason, in checking around the same site, they came up with "add to cart", so I did. I ordered it, got a confirmation email, and a fedex saying it had been shipped from Athens, Ga and would be here TOMORROW - go figure! I am so excited - it's such a handy and charming piece - with flowers OR empty. The shipping is about $6, so the ebay price shipping would be better, but, hey, I'm just happy that the "out of stock" item suddenly became "in stock". Thanks for following up. Linda

    ReplyDelete
  78. Oh this is my kind of vase Kim!!
    I love the frog style top which is great for keeping stems in place!

  91. Kim, I don't know if I'll find a vase or not, but I'm going to look for my mom. She has Alzheimer's but still loves to go find flowers and some weeds to make arrangements. I'll always remember her beautiful natural arrangements. Thanks for sharing!!!

  93. Kim...what a cute vase and really never thought of picking verbena and putting it in a vase like that! Might have to try it. First I have to plant the verbena :)
