When I first moved to North Carolina, I bought a glass bottle of cheerwine and a bunch of crespedia. Kind of a strange, modern flower, but I hadn't seen very many back in Seattle, therefore it was a treat. Months later, for easter, I was given this vase from target. It always makes me think of the friends who have told me they were given flowers and ended up putting them in an empty slurpee cup or something. But this neat vase sits on my very bare computer desk now to give it a little life and color.
