Let’s celebrate May’s symbol of rebirth and love with all things GREEN!! There is always time to select fresh flowers or flowering plant for Mom and those who have mothered you!! Vases and cachepots of every shape and size add interest, character, a bit of your own personality and even transport us all over the world. Some are sculpture – art simply on their own. Memories of a trip, of childhood, our heritage…are wonderful to relive or be reminded of the love who gave us such a perfect gift!!

The Finnish Artist Alvar Aalto’s Collection is classic…perfect for the mid-century modern design lover, minimalist and today’s Bride and Groom. This classic, designed in 1936, brings new meaning to “Antique” It marries beautifully with traditional decors as well. Art Glass and Crystal are sooo beautiful. Some vessels have no need for flowers at all! Their artistic beauty is complete! I have a major passion for them…and have collected them always. My Museum background and Italian heritage ultimately influence my love of Art in all forms.

As you may know, I love Real – Natural – Genuine and Antique! So not a fan of FAUX!! Of course, caring for plants sometimes is a bit much – yet Mother Earth and Nature still call! Green and plants seem to give life to a room. You might enjoy these Boxwood Topiaries and even dried blooms! They are luscious, charming solutions and gracious additions, literally for any room! You can always enjoy a bit of GREEN!

      Hi Pat…
      Not sure which of the “tulip” vases you refer…Baccarat Vase at my home or the Alto Vase = mid century modern shot.
      Both come in various sizes 6-12″. You can always trim your tulips, as they grow with time and light! They stand up straighter with a penny in the water…
      Enjoy Mother Nature in every size and color!! xoxo MMK
