What Is It?

My mom brought me an awesome piece of blue and white pottery over the weekend...


I love the design.


I loved it even more when she told me she had purchased it in Williamsburg, VA years ago.
Oh, colonial design, you say? Um, yes, please!

I ooh-ed and ah-ed over it before asking...


..."What is it?"
If you already know, you are way ahead of me; I had no clue.


Drumroll... It's a pot for flower arranging: the holes are symmetrically placed to ensure a perfect arrangement. (Symmetry in the 1700's was crucial.)

I clipped some things from our yard to turn the pot into a centerpiece...



I used some roses...


 ...two types of veronica...


...and azalea stems for some greenery.


I love the history of the piece.  I also am a fan of anything that makes a cute, quick, easy centerpiece.
Thanks, Madre!
