Flower Containers

One of my passions is  to go antiquing,  am I am always on the lookout for unusual floral containers.

Old glassware is especially useful to create a charming floral arrangement.

A single mis-matched sherbet gets a new life as a rose vase.
 Fancy stemware is perfect for flowers or tea lights. 

Old canning jars are perfect for casual displays of flowers.

Another favorite- old celery vases and spooners- 

Unusual baskets!

 Beautiful old pottery pieces

Wine bottles and demi-johns

Metal Victorian planters have so much character with their details.

A turn of the century planter with a violet in residence.

Garden urns brought inside.

The old stone French garden cone container.

Ironstone and copper

Vintage silver trophies and sea shells.

 A nautilus shell is the most beautiful container.

Confit pots and olive jugs

Old wire containers

My all time FAVORITE- a vintage horn and silver trophy!  When I found it, it was completely void of any silver finish.  So I sent it out to be re-silvered - it was so worth the investment!

Happy hunting!
