A creative and clever approach for your vase.


Linda - this is an absolutely delightful way of thinking out of the box. I am so thrilled that you felt motivated to create it for a Vase on Monday - thank you so much for sharing it. I am intrigued by the enamel box as Bilston is in the West Midlands of the UK and known for its enamelware, and I am wondering when the connection with Battersea originated because that is in London...must look it up out of curiosity

Linda from Each Little World

Cathy — ​The box came from a dealer in the U.S. and I bought it by mail in 1976. She sold a number of similar type items by mail and would send out a printed catalog. ​The bottom of the box says "Halcyon Days" and "Bilston and Battersea Enamels" below it.


That is neat and a clever idea. The buttons, wonderful! so fun.

Ha! I love this, Linda. I have gobs and gobs of buttons I've saved over the years. I've never come up with the right idea to use them but you may have just provided one.
