I love everything about rusty springs.

I cut an extra large rusty springs in half and screwed them to an old piece of drift wood.

After inserting 2 thin glass vases into the springs, 
I had the perfect rustic little vase stand.

The only thing that could make this vase better
is the very cool vintage tag I created using a graphic from Angie at Knick of Time.
