"The crickets felt it was their duty to warn everybody that summertime cannot last for ever. Even on the most beautiful days in the whole year – the days when summer is changing into autumn – the crickets spread the rumor of sadness and change."
―E.B. White, Charlotte's Web
I have always kind of been on the lookout for floral frogs....you know the metal kind that Martha Stewart was showing off in her "good things" section to hold letters and postcards, etc. etc. Well, I never found one, but I was happy to stumble upon a glass floral frog. I really didn't realize they came in glass, but I think it is quite pretty, don't you? It's true use is to place it in the bottom of a vase and stick the flower stems into the holes to keep them stable. I assume the glass frogs are for glass vases and the metal frogs are for opaque vases??
Anyhow, I just kinda love it as is and will use it (maybe) for floral arrangements, but I'm kind of thinking it would be prettier holding a bunch of paintbrushes, or pens. What do you think?
