The rose

Several years ago Wade and I had gone to a Medieval fair. He bought me this metal rose and I never did anything with it. It just sort of laid on a table and then ended up in a cupboard during Christmas.
There is also a vase that he had before we were married. I always told him that it was the ugliest vase ever. Not too long ago I had pulled the vase out and put something in it. He said "I thought you said that was the ugliest vase you ever saw" I told him it was but I was still going to use it.

Now the rose and the ugliest vase ever sit on my dining room table.

Today is my first day back to work. Wish me luck.

  2. I don't LOVE the vase but it is not the ugliest I have seen. the colors are what turn me off not the vase.. they don't go in my house. but with the rose in it, looks nice and does it have a name on it? if so run a search, it might be worth a few bucks, it looks expensive, like a name brand... OMW I found it on etsay and it is on sale for 25.00 checke it out. https://www.etsy.com/market/yellow_green_vase here is the description and I found it by typing vintage yellow green glass vase...

    Exquisite Vintage Green and Yellow Calla Lily Art Glass Tall Vase, Murano Glass Style, Jack in the Pulpit, and now I am off to search for a red metal rose.

    1. Maybe I've grown fond of it because I don't think it's as ugly as I used to. I wasn't going to admit that to Wade though.

  9. My mom had a tiny little maple china cabinet that I always hated. Now, I have given away or sold almost all my furniture but that little china cabinet.....it is a cherished piece to me now. Just like your vase/rose. Thankful you made it thru the first day back to work. There will be many "firsts" now but you have us (your blog friends) praying for you along the way. xo
