My latest thrift store addiction is seriously inexpensive little glass jars and vases. Festooned with flowers and greenery and sprinkled liberally on a table, they are cheap gorgeousness readily available to any thrift store shopper. I stole this idea directly from Nigella Lawson, and since discovering it, I’ve not looked back.
But when you do have the good food and good people together, adding flowers sure doesn’t hurt. I started gathering small glass jars and vases on my trips to thrift stores and totally love the way they look all scattered on a table. They look good all by themselves or grouped together.
Sometimes I like to fill all of them with flowers and instead of piling them on the table I scatter them throughout the house: bathroom, kitchen windowsill, entry table. It’s a lovely, unexpected bit of freshness and color and always makes me smile.
It’s taken me awhile to collect all of these. I always stop by the glasswares section of any thrift store to see what they have in terms of little glass bottles and jars.
These little vases are also the perfect size for displaying the flowers a loved one picked for you while out on a walk.
