Happy Hour : Spring Vases

Have you noticed? White vases are suddenly everywhere. Springtime fresh, white vases bring a modern, crisp look to any room. And, they're easy to find - you'll see in dollar stores and IKEA. You can even make them yourself but more of that in a minute. First, let's look at how great they can look in any room.

Thanks to Jennifer for bringing this springtime look to my attention. Here's her amazing spring mantel - white pots filled with plants from Trader Joe's.

Around here, our living room mantel with a small jade (a gift from Kimberly) and a round vase (99 Cents Store) filled with Turkey Buzzard feathers left on our deck.

Now for the fun. For this Happy Hour, grab a can of white spray paint to create your own white vases.


Old florist glass vases are the perfect candidates for a spray of white.


Ceramic vases transformed after a spray. Most everyone has some mismatched ceramics - if not, find them at tag sales.

Here's to a fresh life for forgotten vases. Hope you enjoy your Happy Hour.
