While working on this blog I came across so many different and beautiful vases, I felt compelled to share some of my finds with you. Also I find myself becoming more of a flower and plant person now that I grow a bit older, no real particular reason, they just smell nice, feel natural and look beautiful (I tend to treat them better, too.) On my recent stay in Bodrum, I had even planted my own beanstalk, as I love to eat organic and try to take matters into my own hands as much as possible. It was incredible to watch how fast they grew and how cool it is to grow your very own little products.
Below I have assembled some really unique and interesting ones. Find more information by clicking below the pictures.
