Good things come in BIG packages

I am so excited… 🙂  I won a contest for an Aalto hand-blown vase at the lil bee! It came today and it is so sweet!  Thank you so much Melisa, I love it!  I always love receiving a package in the mail and this was extra special.  I really wanted this vase because I am trying to begin collections of beautiful things for my home with J!  So needless to say, I was over the moon when I won this contest.

Please pardon me looking like a mix of a marshmellow and Gollum.  The end of the day is never good.

So, in summation, I am very excited! (As I am sure you have realized.) Thank you again, Melisa!  I will leave you all with the question: Do you think I should display the vase or use it for flowers or some combo?  If you think flowers, what kind do you think would look best in this type of vase?  Hope everyone had a lovely, lovely Monday!

  1. So happy you won, Beth! It looks like it is really pretty in person. Personally, I’d fill it with some bright flowers in one color, like all pink or all yellow. But I bet just about anything would look pretty in there, reflecting off of the blue. Congrats again!

  3. That vase is AMAZING!!!!! And I don’t know a lot about flowers to suggest what would look good in it! But I think it would be a great statement piece just as it is 🙂
