No Vase for a Spring Bouquet

Good evening everyone.  I really didn't get anything done or redone this week because Spring is here and there is so much to do outside.  Planting and trimming and cutting lawns and painting and the list never ends.  It really has been enjoyable to be outside and doing things after the long hard winter we had in Michigan.  The lilacs are out and they smell so good and they are so pretty.  After working outside it is so nice to bring some outside in and the lilacs just fill a room with such a lovely fragrance. I had cut some lilacs and brought them inside and discovered that I didn't have any vases up at the camp.  I looked and looked and still couldn't find any vase but I did discover an empty Kroger small coffee can.

So I filled up the coffee can with water and put my lilacs in it and set it on my fireplace.
I think it looked quite good and fit with the camp feeling and a little blue goes a long way.

As you can see my fireplace isn't quite finished, the painting is done but I still need a fireplace insert.  It's coming....
But aren't the lilacs in the blue coffee can pretty and they did smell wonderful.
Even when one doesn't find a vase another container works just as well and gives an extra dimension to one's decor, what do you think?  Until next time......Dianne......
