Unique Vessels: Vintage Campfire Ladle

A couple of months ago I went antiquing with my mother-in-law and found some wonderful vessels. It is always so much fun to see what's out there. There were two vessels in particular that I thought were quite appropriate for me to use as unique vessels. I mean, look at what it says on the mug: "Things to do today: pick kids up, drop kids off, pick kids up, drop kids off"! Add: walk the dog, make floral arrangements, do the laundry, tend the garden, help kids with homework, help kids with music practice, and make dinner - then that is a day in my life. Flowers: snowball, cilantro bloom, ranunculus, poppy, geranium, thyme Kiana Underwood / tulipina.com

In and amongst all that I do, I make the time to fool around with unique styling. I'll bet this campfire ladle has seen many campfires, but never a bouquet of flowers! I really like how happy these little arrangements turned out. Once I was done, they occupied and beautified my kitchen windowsill for some time. Kiana Underwood / tulipina.com

This last shot is dedicated to my friend Will Taylor. I just finished his new book - which was amazing. So inspiring that I wanted to redecorate my whole house, but instead, I had to settle for these happy and colorful arrangements. If you haven't seen the book (or heard of Will), I urge you to check it out. Kiana Underwood / tulipina.com
