I have family coming into town this weekend to visit us and see our new home. As I was getting the guest room ready, I realized I was missing fresh flowers.
I don't have the time - or the money - to go buy cut flowers for a guest bedroom so I had to use what I have on hand. The previous owners left me a yard full of weeds that I have been slowly chipping away at. So - I used what I have - weeds.
I got the painted glass vase at Hobby Lobby last weekend - it was on clearance - Originally $19.99 but was 70% off so I got it for $6! It matches perfectly with the Iron and Board Holder that I made for $5 that now hangs in this beach themed room.
My weed vase really does give the room that something extra.
I moved to the Point Beach neighborhood in Milford, Connecticut in June of 2018 - these are my experiences of owning a new beach home and relocating to unfamiliar territory. ~ Shelly Straub
