displaying summer flowers

i love summer flowers and wish i had room for a cutter garden. there is nothing like bringing the outdoors in at any time of the year to get that summer feel. i am always on the lookout for new, fresh ways to display flowers and love ideas for recycling the old into a new use.

beautiful Insolit vases designed by BĂ©atrix Li-Chin, featuring a mix of recycled and reclaimed materials
