BIG is Beautiful...

When it comes to West German floor vases, I say, one can NEVER have too many. ( My family disagrees unfortunately  ) Now I also say, they can NEVER be too big.
I purchased my latest vase, on the right, from a garage sale on the weekend. It was dark when I arrived and the sale was open. The house had one of those super long, driveways and the carport was well lit. There seemed to be heaps of people already in the sale...BUGGER, I thought. AND THEN I SAW IT...in the distance, small at first, and then it got bigger and Bigger and BIGGER. I was willing no one to touch it.. STAY AWAY FROM MY PRECIOUS...... I stretched out my arm as far as I could and mustering all my arms strength I reached across a large table to another table....and it was mine...........YEY! 
Actually I need not have been so worried. The people in the garage sale were all the family, there was just a whole heap of them and I was the first customer of the day. I'm sure a few of the family thought I was a crazy woman, running down their driveway in the dark and clutching a vase to my chest. Don't you love the green inside ? 

Next to good size floor vases he really does look a giant.


 I hope you are all having a good start to the week. I have a goal to clear my dining room table of treasures  for Good Friday lunch... After today my family think it can't be done as the treasures are now all over the floor aswell....fingers crossed.

  1. That is HUGE! I love it! I also love the green inside. It's like a bonus.

    The family were probably happy to see it go. Fools!
