I love getting flowers and taking photographs of them as well. These flowers were for Valentine's day and I couldn't find a vase. We used an old Poland Spring water bottle and cut the top off. Turned the top upside down and there you have it, a makeshift vase. I find that most things can be reused or upcycled to other helpful items. Always look around your home to see what can be of good use. Old jars can turn into button holders or sewing kits. Corkscrews can hold string or ribbon. Get creative and recycle at the same time.
