In the April issue, HGTV Magazine poses one last decorating question for your favorite HGTV designers. What’s a fun way to use glass vases? No flowers allowed.

“Roll up all your extra strands of ribbon and store them in a simple cylindrical vase. Pretty on a bookshelf, table, or desk.”—Meg Caswell, Meg’s Great Rooms

“I fill vases with sea glass from the beach. I like that when you look at them, they trigger nice memories. Best of all, the contents are free!”—Anthony Carrino, Cousins on Call

“We’re tea drinkers in our house, but we like all different kinds. So I put individually wrapped tea bags in vases, separated by flavor, then line them up on the countertop.”—Vern Yip, HGTV Design Star judge

    Where is the vase that Genevieve purchase her vase with the lemons and limes? It is simple, but retro at the same time.

      Hi Althea although not exact, I did find similar styles to the one that Genevieve used. Fortunately we've just acquired a Home Goods store ( I know that some of the HGTV designers use this store for their design finds) so I lucked out and found many similar styles plus others that would work as well. Also try Pier 1. If all else fails search "glass footed vases" online.

      Good Luck!! and Happy Shopping :)
