wonder-ful vases

Kelli of There's No Place Like Home hosts Show & Tell Friday.
Be sure to check out all the cool stuff being shared this week.


I have something interesting to share for today's Show & Tell. It's called WonderVase and I bought a package at the women's expo I attended a couple of weeks ago.

The package contains three separate plastic looking bags
that transform into vases.

Here are the instructions:

~fill with warm water
~hand form vase into desired shape
~empty warm water and re-fill vase with cool water
~place flowers in vase!

To re-use:

~empty vase
~rinse in warm water; smooth flat

The plastic is pliable when in contact with the warm water but then the cool water sets it and the vase then keeps it's shape.

You can decorate the plastic with paint pens or anything you want to glue to it. I thought they were pretty cool
and figured I'd get a lot of use out of them.

Just wanted to pop over and say hi.

That is cool. I've never seen that before.

Have a great weekend.

This is just so unique and pretty too. What a concept.

My show n tell in honor of mother's this weekend, is some of my mom's antique cooking implements.

Happy Friday!!!

Just Mom said...

Oh. My. Goodness! That is so COOL! What a space saver.

Simply Heart And Home said...

Very interesting and what a creative idea! Do they always stand upright or do they tip over easily?

Susie said...

I've never seen anything like these. Looks like such a unique way to display your bouquets!

Heather said...

Wow, these look really cool! If I had them, someone might have to start buying me flowers!

Kate said...

I love the colors in those. Great accent to the flowers!

I hope you have a Happy Mother's Day weekend:)

Constance said...

OMG!!! I just got inspiration for something my Grand-daughters could do for a Mother's day present for my daughters! (Since it's already Friday, maybe next year!) Those are WAY COOL!

SharonB said...

Wow so cool! I've never heard of them before, but they look really great and useful!!

Neat idea, and pretty too. Thanks for sharing:)

Tiffany said...

These would make great vases to have on hand for giving flowers away!

Barbara H. said...

I had never heard of these. What a unique idea!

MightyMom said...

that is cool as you frequently have just a few flowers that don't look good in a large vase! nifty

Jaderocks said...

What a unique and smart idea. I have never seen anything like it. I'm sure we would all have fun making new vase shapes.

Momma Roar said...

Those are very cool!! And they so unique too!

I hope you are feeling like you are getting a lot done!!! You do have some busy times ahead!!

Melissa said...

Okay... those? Those are AWESOME! I'm gonna have to check that out... how fun would that be?

Barb said...

I love it! I'm always looking for just the right size vase.

MammyT said...

Brilliant! I have this hallway closet that contains candle holders and vases of every conceivable shape and size and I can never find what I want without taking out half of the goods. This is amazing. Thanks.
