Over sized Glass Vases

My hubby went snowmobiling with his buddies today...so I took Starwars and went shopping down south at my favorite decorating store Tai Pan Trading (I LOVE this place!!!♥) I'm pretty sure we are moving soon out of town-so I have to shop carefully. Whatever I buy now-will be extra to pack in the van. But a certain item caught my eye...and always has. These beautiful over sized Demijohns bottles. I found lots of stock pictures here on the internet. People can usually buy them at Pottery Barn-but for a hefty price tag. Mine was $28.
I actually found one similar to the one on the left! It is so cool:) I like the feel of it and the weight.
I love the shape of these ones too. They feel cold and remind me of the ocean weight balls.
I love the creative ways people decorate with them. Of course, some are used on display with corks.

These giant bottles look so good next to a window with the light coming through them.
These lovely bottles just make me smile:) Awesome!!!!

Cool! You have so much style for decorating...How did you use them to decorate in your house?

I'd like to add them to my nautical beach collection-for color and light. *The turquoise blue is so popular right now (I believe) because of this coastal decor...bring the seaside-INSIDE!

Thanks everyone:) We are planning a move up to Salt Lake after school gets out. My hubby has been commuting for over seven months now. He's pretty happy with his new job-which is an answer to my prayer!

Very cool vases! I understand TaiPan in University Mall is having a Ladie's Night next Saturday during Priesthood. Supposed to have good deals. Not sure where you live but I know a commute to SLC from Utah County can be long! My hubs has done it for 3 years now! Not fun!
