Week 47 of Be Still 52... Unique vessels.
Mine is my great-grandmother's hair receiver. I only put petals in it rather than use it for a 'vase'.
This is what wikipedia had to say about antique hair receivers...
A hair receiver is a small pot, with a hole in the lid, kept on the dressing table in the Victorian era to store hair removed from brushes and combs. The hair was recycled in a number of ways—notably for stuffing small bags, about 8–10 centimetres (3–4 in) across, called ratts, used to bulk out women's hairstyles. Human hair was also used for stuffing pincushions and small furnishing cushions.
It was often paired with a matching trinket box or a powder jar or as part of a dressing table set, made mainly from porcelain, though glass, metal, and celluloid were also used.
I badly wanted to texture this one for a change. kk_waterfront14 and kk_avery texture.
My own preset aptly called Faded Peonies.

Here's one from earlier, still on the plant. I meant to count the flowers this year. They gave and gave. The last three are withering in the vase right now.
I have the pleasure of doing a guest post for Focusing on Life today. Won't you join me over there? I give some photography examples of 'shooting through'.
Linking up with Kim for Texture Tuesday.
