Tulips Make Me Swoon and EWW What A Display Vase

Do I consider myself lucky?  Do I consider myself blessed?  Am I thankful?  Do I work at it?  In one simple word:

Yes to all of the above.  

I do consider myself lucky to have been the winner of Heidi's first giveaway from "Show Some Decor" giveaway winner. You should go check out her blog here and also go take a look at the many gorgeous items she sells with her "Willow House" business here.  You'll love her blog because it's just fun and full of great decorating items.  And she's such a loving, caring person that you're sure to like.

I just love this bowl!

"Isn't this vase gorgeous?  When I first saw it, I fell in love with it.  And this is no little vase either.  It measures 61/2" diameter x 14" tall and holds 10 cups.  Now that makes a statement.  I love the simple elegant shape that stands out in a room.  I can think of a dozen different uses for it too.  Not only would it display any cut flower beautifully but think of  how pretty a display of crocus' growing in pebbles would be.  Christmas, well that's pretty obvious ~ beautiful Christmas ornaments.  Filled with acorns or pine-cones it whispers fall.  How about filling it with miniature pumpkins and gourds for Thanksgiving, or even a candle tucked in a bed of candy corn.  What about a candle nestled in anything from wonderful smelling coffee beans, pebbles, sea glass or even jelly beans for Easter.    

Oh', I've just inspired myself to go do something beautiful with it.  Now I just need to decide where to put it.  The counter, the table.  Maybe I should just spoil myself and enjoy it's beauty in our bedroom or even the bath.  Oh' Woo, what about filling it with Robin's Egg blue speckled soap eggs., or bath salts with a scope.  Oh' I really have to go and get busy!

Share some spring inspiration with me.  I'd love to see what you've done lately and I always love to read your comments.  So tell me what you've been up to so I can come and check it out.

Wishing you all a week of joy......Tracy :)

BTW - does anyone know the correct spelling for EEEWWW  (pronouned like ooey gooy good)?


  1. Congratulations on your beautiful WIN. Yes, it's just too much fun. But, how much better to be on the giving side. I'm nearing my 100th post so I think it's time to be thinking about having my first giveaway. Now, what to give? That will take some thought.

    Have A God Filled Day

  2. Thanks, Tracy! I was so thrilled that you won-- I know you'll do something fabulous with this gem. I love the height of this piece-- makes it easy to display tall things. I've got some forsythia clippings in mine now and they're in bloom! So refreshing.
    All the best and come back for more giveaways in March when I celebrate 4 years in business and one year blogging at Show Some Decor. :)
    Hugs to you-- Heidi :)

  3. Hi Tracy! Pretty Vase!!Lucky you!!I love that bowl too!!

  4. COngrats on your beautiful win!! eeewwww!! or how ever the good eewww is spelled!! LOL

  5. Hi Tracy,
    Wow! You scored big time, and I can't think of someone who is more deserving of some yummy pampering than you! And yep, I love beautiful packaging too! I used to laugh at my grandma when she would fold up wrapping paper to re-use. But I "rescued" some beautiful wrapping paper from a bridal shower at my church. It is great for altered books though.

    Hope they get Nadine's blood sugar levels under control soon. Take care and have a great weekend!
