These little vases are the perfect touch for creating interesting and colorful bookshelf displays. Take your purposeful bookshelves up a notch by creating cute vignettes. Grab a couple of books or hardcover photo albums, combine them with a colorful vase and an interestingly shaped photo frame and a small personal item and voila... Beautiful shelves that will become a nice focal point of your room. Scatter these vignettes from side to middle to side on alternating shelves. These vases are the perfect size to use on the very popular ladder type shelves since they do not weigh much and are small enough to actually fit! I Had to take a little off the rating since the antiquing was done too rough and in too large and well defined pieces for my taste.
