Melancholy Tulips in a Haeger Vase

Fickle Spring! After a few truly glorious days of sunshine and warmth, things have taken a turn back towards winter. Complete with snow. My husband picked up some bunches of tulips to cheer me. I arranged them in this classical vintage  Haeger Pottery vase.

Perhaps because my mother grew up making regular pilgrimages to the factory store with her mother as a girl and thus has some nice pieces of Haeger, I’ve always had a fondness for the brand. I’ve been working to assemble my own modest collection over the years. So I was saddened to learn that after 145 years in business, the Illinois-based company announced a few days ago that it is closing. What a shame.
