Meet "The Girls"...

I found a couple of cracked vases at garage sales recently.  I decided they might be finished being "useful"...but they weren't done being "pretty".

 Flipped upside down they looked a like a skirt and a couple of arms to me.  How about you?

 I'm pretty sure my inspiration for these lovely ladies came from these little sugar bowl cuties by Betsy of MY SALVAGED TREASURES.
Don't you love them?

For now they are enjoying their new home on top of the hutch in my Great Room.  They might make their way to our booth...soon :)

  2. Hey there!! Lovely ladies!
    I have 2 pink matching vases that just will not sell in my booth...think I'll turn them upside down and use them as display pieces...never thought of it before! Thanks for the idea! Looks like you are having great yard sale fun! Best, Vicki
