My favorite flowers and vase!!!

This vase had my eye from day one. I saw it in Safeway floral dept, in Madras Oregon. I was on one of my many road trips to see my kids/grandbabies. While stopping to use Safeway's restroom, and get a Starbuck'sto keep me awake.......I saw this amazing vase. The floral shop had the vase filled to the brim, with flowers, stones and a huge ribbon bow. They wanted $25.00 for the whole thing.........bccause I buy the cheapest possible, this would not work for me. ;-) I looked at our stores here in Washington, they did not even carry the vase. THEN on one of my many road trips, I stopped at Madras, for the usual, and low and behold, before my eyes was an EMPTY vase...........for just $9.99. I SO GRABBED IT UP..........and we have enjoyed it since. My hubby buys me flowers from Walmart or Safeway, when he goes to town. I LOVE FLOWERS. These orange flowers are my favorite. They are tiny rose buds, from Walmart $5.00. :-D
