a keepsake

35mm Film, Pentax K1000, Kodak 400 Gold.

I noticed this unique flower vase on a table at a tasting room in Napa.

I kindly the owner if it were for sale – I’m sure she would have wanted me to purchase the wine, but of course – I was thinking of having this in my home.  She agreed, and we walked directly to the post office to have it shipped.  As you can imagine, I was terrified that it would break in the mail.

Definitely worth all of the effort.  I love being able to uniquely display my flowers like this.

And yes, I posted the hassie version previously, but I love the 35mm version just as much!

And, thanks so much for all of your kind words on my previous post!

    I noticed that before and it is so cute. And what a reminder of what a nice trip you had. I’m TRULY amazed that it survived the shipping – the post office can be brutal. Glad it was well-packed so that you could share with us :-)ReplyCancel

    OH my, I am completely smitten with it too. Were you able to find out more information about it from the restaurant owner? Like the company or artist that created it?

    Gorgeous set of images…ReplyCancel

    […] mixed media art, drawings, polaroids, etc.  Each image inspires me.  And the vases I found at a wine tasting room in Napa Valley have found their way to this […]ReplyCancel
