Hi Kim, I think your head vases are adorable, I can't wait until my daughter comes home so that I can show her. What a wonderful thing as you said to have one of these turn up at your door filled with a little posy. I have never these before. I'll have to check up and see if the florists over here used them as well it's a great idea. I can't choose a favourite, I love them all. With my love for all things afternoon tea, I have started to collect tea cups and saucers. I love the look of a white vintage tablecloth, pink David Austin roses or peonies in a vintage vase, tiered yummies and a collection of all different cups and saucers. This is the best eye candy for me. By the way, I love your white and green plate with May written on it. May was my Mothers name. Have a great day. Trish xox ;)

Hi Kim, I just popped back to let you know that I found some Head Vases here on E Bay I think they are Beautiful. Trish

So glad you have spotted some of these "little ladies" on ebay. They would look so pretty alongside your teacups, pretty linens and tiered desert trays with delicious treats. I hope you spot one (or several) that you adore. Say hello to your daughter for me. As a florist, I am sure she will love the history of the head vases! I am glad you love the May teacups, saucers and desert plates. I am drawn to things that have my mother's name, too. Her name was Lillie---and guess what? Her middle name was Mae. Aways happy to hear from you, Trish! Have a "bluebird day" today! xoxo Kim

Hi, Kim, thanks so much for stopping by the beach post today. So nice to meet you too. I'm a big lover of antiques & thrift shopping too, so hope to see you around often. I've always thought those head vases were fascinating.

I haven't seen a head vase for sale...but I actually have one from the '60s that I got when I was in the hospital. I don't have very many things from my youth...but I have a head vase! I'll have to get it out of the cedar chest to take a photo of it! lol You have so many wonderful collections! I would love to see more photos of your home! I know it is lovely! ♥

I would love to see a photo of your head vase sometime! Thank you so much for the nice compliment. I am planning to do some postings in the future on my home. You are so sweet! Happy St. Patrick's Day! Hugs, Kim

Hi Rhoda,
Thank you for taking the time to visit me at my blog. I'm glad you love antiques and thrift shops, too! You just never know what you will find. I bet there are some great little places to browse in your neck of the woods. I'll stop by Southern Hospitality again soon! I have added you to my list of "nests to visit" so that others may pop over to see you. Have a wonderful day there in beautiful Destin!
Happy St. Patrick's Day! Kim
