You know you were singing that unavoidable Miley Cyrus song, so don’t pretend otherwise. It’s catchy, and more, the message is one I’ve seen more and more people take seriously: there is something worthwhile in buying yourself flowers. I’ve been a big fan of it since becoming an adult, and though I don’t do it at every grocery trip, I try to once a month or so when the outside world is not yet flush with fresh flora. Though I keep my flowers in a giant terrazzo pitcher, I can’t lie: I’ve been tempted several times to snag a bookish vase to add to my window.

Whether you’re already in the habit of buying flowers or like to grab them occasionally – frankly, even if you don’t get them at all – you might like to find a bookish vase or two for your home as well. Find below a fun range of bookish vases, any of which would make a nice statement. I can see these being useful on bookshelves or desks, too, to store all of the little ephemera that collect (pens, markers, paper clips, and so forth).

Get ready to give your home a little spring refresher, book lover style.
