Stylish Collectible: Why not put that quirky collection to good use? Whether you collected marbles as a child or accumulate corks as an adult, either can be used as a vase filler for a floral centerpiece. Find a large, clear hurricane or vase, fill two-thirds of the way with corks and arrange your favorite seasonal flowers for a simple and unique centerpiece. Design by John Gidding.
