Valentine's Day is tomorrow but I already received a wonderful surprise from my daughter and her family. A dozen beautiful tulips.

When they came I panicked. All my pretty vases are in storage during our remodeling. What can I do with these flowers? Then I spotted a recent thrift store find, a white mason jar looking vase? jar? I'm not sure. In the tulips went and frankly, I love them this way.

When I called to thank Jessica we laughed about not having a vase and when I told her about the jar she said that it sounded perfect. She knows my taste. So here I share my jar of tulips and they couldn't be more beautiful.

Thank you, Jessica, Matt, Alexander and Brendan. What a lovely surprise.
