Last weekend a nearby antiques mall was having a sale if you paid for your purchase with cash or a check. I decided to stop by to see if the etched glass bowl that I've been admiring for months was still there. It was and I fell prey to temptation. Earlier this spring we got a new coffee table that is glass and stainless steel so I've been bringing out anything glass or shiny to enhance the new table.
I knew this bowl would look stunning on the table. And because it is sited lower than most "vases" you would be able to see all the gorgeous patterning. Thus my arrangement is minimal: Clematis 'Niobe', a few cherries and a pair of peaches. I shot this photo down on the bowl so you are looking through the glass table. That's the table edge at the right side of the image.
This picture shows more of the design details on the bowl which is reflected on the table top along with a bit of the garden that is doubly reflected from the window behind the couch.
