I was inspired by this beaded milk bottle (wine carafe?) with the cute single stem. Since I have trouble passing them up canning jars at yard sales I used this one with the wire and added some glass beads for the 'water'. I figured the fake flower would probably become a soggy fake flower if I used real water. Or the kids would knock it over with one of the many balls that seem to bounce around our bedroom on a regular basis. Just an easy peasy little touch that makes me smile when I see it. Cost: canning jar .25, glass beads free from a friend, fake flower .75 Bowring sale.
