Peonies are one of my favorite flowers, next to sweat peas. The carefree shape, the scent, the colors and best of all as they start to wither away they become more beautiful. I was so excited to pick-up a small bunch and then found the perfect vessel for one of the fully bloomed peonies.
I was baking and used my last drop of vanilla extract and as I was about to toss it into the recycling bin my arm swung back and I immediately removed the label, washed it and and stuck the striking stem into the glass bottle. The amber shade makes the peony look so romantic and timeless. I could stare at it forever. If only..
Recycling pays big.
