I’m so smitten with this J. Mendocino vase I got a few weeks ago. I feel like he needs a name. I just don’t know what that is yet. I don’t normally buy myself flowers but I thought it was an ok thing to do for my own birthday. A few months ago I first saw this little number on Three Potato Four, a great little shop, btw, if you haven’t checked it out before. I balked at buying one, in part because of the price, in part because I rarely have flowers, and in part because having just moved, I’m really wary of acquiring things that are a) not absolutely necessary and b) breakable.
Still, when I saw one of these on the Modern Economy Sample Sale at 40% off I couldn’t say no. The vase was marked down as “second quality” because of “minor blemishes.” I don’t mind though…they’re sorta charming, character building. Just don’t mention it to him, ok? He’s kind of sensitive about it. =)
