Unusual Vases: When Almond Jelly Looks Sweet

Remember when I went "vase" shopping in the canned food section of Uwajimaya in Seattle?  Well this BEAUTIFUL almond jelly can was one of my selections.  I couldn't resist the pink ombre-effect can.

When I was passing the floral department of the grocery store, I found these unusual carnations and raspberry roses in separate packages in the clearance section. Could any flowers be more suited to my new vase? I don't think so. (However my peonies are about to bloom, so stay tuned!)

I put a plain drinking glass inside of the tin (to avoid any water/rust) and Voila! It looked so pretty it inspired me to pull out my 3 pink lustre teacups and sandwich plates. Who wants to come for tea?
