My Vase

Here are some pictures of the beautiful vase that I bought with the money I won in Suzie the Foodie's contest way back in July; I'm only now getting around to posting the picture of it. Here it is filled with stargazer lilies from my garden. It is gorgeous, and definitely more than I would ever spend on a vase myself, so it is a real treat. It's really heavy crystal, and looks beautiful no matter where you have it or what you put in it. Thank you again, Suzie!

What a beautiful vase! Hey... I can't help but notice a bonsai. I've been looking at them... and have heard they are hard to maintain. Are they?

PS: What are bloglines?

Yay!!!!!!!! And I agree, it's GORGEOUS! I think that is the perfect choice Olivia. So happy for you!!! I am so very happy you won and the vase got to you just fine. Congratulations.

I'm so glad you all like it! Me, too :)

and EB, yes I have two bonsai in the nook but they are not real--people who visit also think they are real as they are quite realistic. I like low maintenance things!

Love to you all,

It's a very lovely vase and the lilies look beautiful in it. And I'm loving the books all around too! And the Angel, and the incredible view from the picture window. Looks like you have quite a nice sanctuary there!
Have a nice weekend.

Thanks, Mary. I'm glad you like my nook. I spend most of my time there--probably 4-12 hours a day on a normal day. It does indeed feel like a sanctuary. xoO
