Simple Spring Centerpiece

In my efforts to reduce the amount of waste in our home, I am trying to make conscious efforts concerning the items that we buy. Less waste, less clutter and more beauty in our home are what I am attempting to achieve this year. Living this way is a continual work in a progress but I loved how a simple glass bottle and a few tulip blooms turned into a beautiful thing.

I made a stop in at one of my favorite health foods stores yesterday, I was thirsty and so I picked up some Kombucha in a glass bottle. I emptied the delicious contents of the bottle and then pondered what it could be used for.

I am not a hoarder and I don't own a single vase. No, not one. It's an item that takes up space in my home, rarely gets used and I personally don't like storing items that I rarely use. I like items that are multi-functioning, so most of the time you will find freshly picked flowers in a mason jar. Except for today, it's a Kombacha bottle and several other vintage soda bottles.

My sixteen-year-old daughter is a bit more of a collector than I am. She recently got the rootbeer and coke bottles as a gift. (side note: how awesome is it that she was over joyed about a recycled gift) She allowed me to use the bottles for the purpose of a vase, to hold my beautiful white tulips.

Glass soda bottles and a few dollars for some beautiful white tulips is where I found simple beauty in a simple thing this week. Eventually the Kombuacha bottle will be recycled but until then it makes a beautiful vase. What items do you have in the home that you can repurpose to create a little simple beauty?
