Let's play Antique Road Show!

I missed Blue Monday yesterday
at Smiling Sally's with this
valuable vase.

At least I think it is...

Have any of you guys
ever seen anything like this?

She is 8 1/2" tall and there are no
markings on her bottom.
See the lovely little bow on her neck
and the bright gold accents?

Well, does anyone have a clue
about this blue beauty?

And speaking of playing... some clever gal out there in blogland made some flowers from recycled coffee filters. So I started saving mine. Just a little rinse in the sink and laid them out to dry. And this morning while having my second cup I grabbed the stack and started twisting and tweaking. Then attached them to an an abandoned wire flower thingy with some floral tape. Six blooms in all. Now that can't be right, I seem to remember some rule about uneven numbers. I better recount...1-2-3-4-5-6-7. Lucky me!
Now that's what I call goin' green!

And 7 recycled roses allows me to play
3 or More Tuesday with

Well... not me on the vase... but it sure is unusual!

I love the flowers! We don't use coffee filters anymore... ours is one of those mesh filters...

I'm gonna have to get creative if I want to craft with used coffee filters... maybe I'll start lurking in the breakroom at work!

beautiful job as always! STAY WARM! we're 29-hours away from the arctic blast (according to Bill on Channel 5)!

Sorry can't help on identifying your vase, but thanks for posting your coffee filter roses. I too saw these a few weeks ago and forgot where!
Love your header photo by the way.

I'm no help on the vase either and we also use a gold filter but you inspired me to maybe ask my neighbor for some filters to see if I can create a flower or two. Thank you for playing along with 'Three Or More'.
Have a wonderful day,

It seems that life has grabbed me too, Candy. I'm just getting around to my comments. I'm so sorry that you didn't get to link in to Blue Monday with this gorgeous vase; I've never seen one like it.

Your paper roses remind me of the song... and they're attractive.
