A lovely vase

I ran across this creamware vase on eBay. I love to see these with tulips in them.

On a side note, if I read the words "chippy" or "cottage style" on one more eBay post or antique store tag, I think I'll be sick, so I'm not going to describe this dear little vase that way... I think "shabby chic" lost its street cred about six or seven years ago when you started being able to buy repros at Target. Not that I don't love buying entertaining and home decor items at Target. I do buy there, you just need to be careful. I generally also stay away from repros of anything. Target is for modern pieces. If I want vintage, I'll buy vintage.
