my love for johnny-jump-ups and pansies knows no bounds. they are some of my all-time favorite little flowers. so cheery. so sweet. so little. with that in mind, i’m making little thumbprint vases now to hold just one blossom at a time. they’re bisque on the outsize…glazed inside and hold water….but only a drop or two…just enough to quench the thirst of these wee blooms.
i make ’em in a flash. they are, how shall we say….rustic. yes. but they’re also cheap at $3 a piece. i add a little flower her or there or an embellishment stamped from my collection of old butter pat molds.
