Carriage Oak Cottage

As the winter doldrums have really started to get me down, I find myself counting down the days to daylight saving time. The spring makes me think and dream of vivid, poppy colors. Which is why I love these vases, created by Kristin Malaer of Raleigh, North Carolina.  

Kristin loves to play with color and texture and therefore chose to cover these glass vases in her own mixture of stucco and cement. The result is something unique and intriguing to the eye. This set of three would look lovely on my front porch, side by side, filled with spring flowers...sigh.  

Kristin is a busy bee, getting ready for spring herself as she now has hundreds of colorful vases to choose from on her site. Sounds like a good plan to beat the winter doldrums... Enjoy the weekend y'all.
