Vase, $2

There comes a time in a woman’s life when she needs lots of little vases for all the little posies and blooms she’s given every other day. No, not the ones she’s given by a smitten boyfriend or husband when she’s young and adorable, but the ones she’s given by her offspring when they are young and adorable. The blooms are usually the heads of weeds picked in the garden or blossom-laden twigs collected from the school grounds and carried home in the bottom of a schoolbag. I decided to start keeping an eye out for small vases whenever I was at an op shop when I found one day that just about every drinking glass in the house had a flower in it.

  1. Guess what we're doing for the Candlebark Fete... A second hand stall! We're calling it "inspired by Amy".
    Also, I was really pissed off at the age for taking out Revival. How will I spend my Saturday afternoons now? Grr.
