No it's not sterling silver. Darn. But I've been looking for a cute flower vase like this for a while, so for now- silver or not, this is perfect.
It's hard to tell from the picture but it's colour was really dull- and not in a nice patina sort of way so I gave it a quick coat of metallic silver spray paint that I had lying around.
Luckily all it took was one coat since that's all I had left.
I love cut flowers but I'm not good at maintaining them. So I think it's worth it to invest in a few beautiful fake flowers. (I can hear some of you cringe- sorry!) The ones I got are mid range (from Pier 1) but you can get ones that look identical to the real thing. The plan is to one day invest in some peonies. Some light pink and white peonies would look awesome in this cup. So romantic and feminine.
I also found the cutest little glass cups perfect for mini terrariums! I spotted them just as I was heading to the cash register and there were 2 of them so of course I picked them both up and my friend and I made friendship terrariums! =)
Isn't that one cute terrarium?!
The "all you need is love" canvas is a little DIY project I did back in February. Check out the post here.
