   No Rosie, it isn't a rule that you can't put cut flowers into vases, but NOT in my house!!! I HATE cut flowers, they belong outside in my view!!!lol! Just my personal preference.

No Sue, I didn't know that....very interesting....I loved them.
The glasses you mentioned....did they look like they were covered in sugar, with coloured bands round them?
A bit like these?

We had them too....in the 50's!!

John....you can buy me choccies instead, then I will forgive you.....no flowers indeed!!

To Lustrousstone;
I did not want to be with the (D) word, I just wanted to say it again and again a big burden for me when I think "now I must go against the rags put in action"


To rosieposie;
Flower pot is my solution.


For this reason I give my Wife only potted plants, we were lucky to have many porcelain tea & coffee mugs for our cut flowers.  :t:
Here we see not the deposit.

But sometimes when I come Home, I get a fright when she once again Orrefors vase has taken or as in this image with tulips. But she is Sweet and my heart, so I forgive her.  :kissy:

Glas Vasen - thanks you for sharing all your lovely glass displays - and your affection for your lady.  :-*

(Every christmas my Dad gave mother a potted plant. Every christmas, mother flung it across the room.
Ahhh, the old "family christmas traditions".....)

Rosie yup, like those, but shorter, with a narrow base and slightly bulbous top part. Small hands had to grip them tightly because of the size, which meant feeling the horrible stuff almost to the point of pain.
Cheers, Sue (M)

Here are (some of) mine. There is more on display and more in boxes and cupboards. The scruffy two shelves are ebay stock (some of it) and the books are a goodly proportion of my glass books.

The Jobling salad bowl is damaged, so I'm not worried about water marks.
