Stem Vase – Are You Kidding?

I saw this image on Pinterest and did some research to find out it’s only 14 centimeters (less than 6 inches) tall and costs 40 euros (over $50).

Seriously, how difficult can this be to make? Not just tiny planters but large ones into which potted plants may be put.

We’re going to make some out of walnut. That’s right: WALNUT! And they’ll be FREE!

What have you found that’s seriously overpriced? Did you buy it?

Welcome to The Glade, where the second generation of renovations has just begun and the mania about our home, music and other passions fill our days and nights. We’re Charlie and Jo in the music world; Mary Jo and Charles to family; and JoJo and Charlie to each other. We are renovating a midcentury house in a Victorian historic district where we want to live there the rest of our lives. It's a 1946 house located in Maryland. We were married in this house. Thus far (pre-blog) we refinished cabinets, added a window seat (still working on the cushion), rearranged a wall in the guest house due to sink/vanity replacement, planted a vegetable garden, and other quick and not-so-quick fixes. So this latest zeal for construction is the result of my having lived here since 1997 and feeling a need to ready the house for the next chapter and beyond.
