Personalized Wedding Vase by MaidOfClay - An instant heirloom based on sentimental value alone, this would make a lovely gift for the bride and groom as a rememberance of the day. First, the vase is hand thrown on the wheel and the names are etched into the clay. Then, the names and date are painstakingly hand carved.
Pinner said "When my sister was married last year, I took the roses from her bouquet and rooted them by cutting off the heads, making a clean cut on the bottoms, dipping the fresh-cut bottoms in rooting hormone, and putting them in a pot that was half Perlite and half soil. This year, on her first anniversary, my sister received a gift that could never be replace: 12 rose bushes from her wedding bouquet."
