Pumpkin Vase (Make that, Vah-se, If You're Fancy)

Hallow out pumpkin, fit in a glass container, fill it with water.

Endure smell of marigolds at will.


I can't stand them, but this is the last of our flowers, so I'd better get them while I can...

Oh that is so cute, Megan!! I love it. The flowers match perfectly.

Megan said...

ok, ok- i am not that creative. i should have mentioned that i've seen this idea for years in martha, real simple, random tv, etc etc. i'm sure it was martha's idea first- but i can't remember where i was first inspired to do it. but i know for SURE the first inspiration was NOT in my own noggin!

It is beautiful! I love the fall-ness of it all!

I do not have a marigold smell appreciation either but I can understand wanting to enjoy the last flowers... I always felt like shedding more than a few tears when my fall mums would die when we lived in Vermont. I really knew it was over when they kicked the bucket.

We still have roses in the bud stage down here... It is SO strange for me!

adorable idea. I think I might try it.

and is it sick that I like the smell of marigolds? We used to have a ton in the garden when I was a kid so the smell takes me back.

That is such a good idea!

I'm with you on the smell of the marigolds. I guess that's why they say to plant them around the edges of your garden to keep the pesky critters away!
Fun idea for a VAZ tho'!
