Late last year, a pair of old Anchor Hocking bud vases I had on display in the kitchen were smashed. And no, not in a fit of passion either.
A gust of wind blew over a picture frame that was leaning behind the vases...sealing their fate. Bam, crash, shatter and they entered bud vase heaven.
(I felt like Deb from Loyalist Cottage who often features a broken item of the week on her blog.)
The vases weren't terribly valuable, but I was still sad they broke. They were a matching pair that had been passed on to us by a friend when he was clearing up his Dad's house. He knew I liked to collect coloured glass.

Bud vases are kind of handy, especially when you still have little ones picking flowering weeds which you are obliged to display with pride near the kitchen sink. Dandelions are the flower de jour.
So, I found two controlled bubble vases which would act as a substitute. Again, these aren't valuable but I love their sunny yellow disposition.

I have no idea of their provenance but they could be from the 60s...who knows? They're happy and I like matchy-matchy bud vases...to display the weeds and other bits from our garden.
How do you display your sprigs from the garden?
