Marry Form and Function.

I love sculptural vases or pots. I find that most times I am drawn to the ornate, geometric, or colorful designs. However, pure white and simple sometime wins. On a flea market trip in NYC last year, I passed over a beautiful small, round, multi-colored floral pot that was being sold for $50. The guy would not take $40 so I moved on. The price tag was a bit too high for me that day (must have been dropping coin on lots of other goodies in NYC that weekend). What was I thinking! Too small? Too busy? Too much moolah? I’ve been picturing it ever since. Here are a few that make any day brighter and any flower that much more beautiful.
