Antique Store Finds

Hi! I had mentioned in an earlier post that I had found an unusual vase at a local antique store. I actually found two :) I went back two days later to get the smaller one! It looks so much better as a pair.......don't you think? The lady at the shop told me that these were used to store lavender! What a lovely idea.The color, the design ad the rusty iron stand......it was love at first sight! Everybody loves a bargain and these were  inexpensive as well..........Yay:)

I love the peonies in my new vase sitting happily by my window :)

I have the exact same vase and holder except my glass is clear and there are little wooden handles on the holder! I got mine at our local thrift store for a few dollars and I actually HAVE dried Lavender in it! Thanks for letting us know what these are.
