In a Vase on Monday

This Monday morning I have here a collection of small vases that I purchased at auction. I am afraid I have been bitten by Cathy's meme of putting something into a vase on Monday. It is great fun to see what everyone puts into their vase.
Of course winter can be challenging in this part of the country. Everything outside has been frost bitten so I am featuring one of my air plants in the tallest of this group of black vases. The black vase does show off the air plant. 
I hope everyone can find a bit of something to show off in their vase today and you share it. Let Cathy and others know about your vases here.
Happy Monday everyone.

  4. The air plant was a great choice for the beautiful vases. I've always thought it would be fun to go to an auction.

    1. You should go! Auctions are a lot of fun and often you can get some good buys.

    1. Kris, my daughter gave me a couple of Tillandsias for christmas one year and I have been hooked ever since. They are such fun to watch them grow and not any trouble.

  7. Oh, I thought they would be quite hard to grow. Is it still growing in the vase? The vases look like Bohemian glass, I have seen some which looked similar but dark red. It's great fun finding vases at auction even online.

    1. It just sits there on top of the vase. It is quite happy there. Some of the vases are called Black Carnival Glass and some are Black Amethyst. If you put the black amethyst ones up to light you see purple.
