Not to Be Taken with a Grain of Salt
My Secret Garden Tip of the week is one of those simple ideas that adds a lot of charm to your cut flower arrangements. =)
Most garden enthusiasts enjoy bringing the flower garden inside for a touch of beauty.
Sometimes when you go out to cut flowers, you find small blossoms that don’t fit into a regular sized container. They are worthy of being clipped and showcased, but they are just too small.
The solution – (passed down from other cleaver ladies) is a miniature vase created out of a salt shaker.
You can find stray shakers at junk stores, antique stores, or if you are like me…one of the pair was broken…which left a “Lone Ranger”.
Here is a picture of a Peace Rose that was able to make the cut since it had a little place to be. =)
This cost – $0.00 since I had a stray shaker that needed a purpose.
Look around for other items in your cupboards that might make a charming little vase. You will be pleasantly surprised at what you find.
