Turns out Galileo didn’t invent his thermometer, but don’t tell anybody. Best to keep quiet and just order this version, which would make for a great showcase piece in your family room, study, bedroom or desk at work. Ancient technology meets colorful modern art. Measures 12-3/4" tall x 1-7/8” dia in clear glass with (5) globes filled with red, green, orange and two shades of blue liquid that float up and down to indicate the temperature. Marked between 64 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit, in 4-degree increments.
Bend Me, Shape Me
The flat vase is 10-1/2" tall and made of thin formable plastic, flat enough to keep in a file folder, or to fold and put in your pocket when you're carrying roses somewhere. Fill it with warm water and mold it to the shape you want, empty it and fill it with cold water to hold that shape; add flowers. Ours are a lovely white and green, blue, or red floral pattern.
Or lampy flowers, we're not sure. We do know these ceramic lamp finials (the thingees that hold the shade on) are sweetly colored bunches of flowers, about 1" dia x 3" tall. Our each is a box of (4) including (1) each with yellow chrysanthemums, yellow daffodils, rose, purple and yellow tulips, and rose and purple somethings which we think may sort of be pansies. All have green leaves around the flowers. Very pretty, but we suggest you do not use them with a hi-tech decor.
