I noticed this small vase on her counter and I let her know that a shape like that would be perfect, not to mention the reflective surface. She quickly took out the pins she had in it and handed it to me. She said "It's yours." What a wonderful surprise. The red roses I purchased from her and I think they are just gorgeous.
