Vintage Collecting No. 8 ~ Flower Frogs

Welcome friends to Part 8 of my ongoing series about vintage collecting.

Now let me show you a few examples of flower frogs from my collection.

I fell in love with flower frogs when I was a little girl.  My mother had a large clear flower frog that she used in a crystal bowl to hold roses.  I thought her bouquets were so beautiful.  The flower frog above is like my Mother’s.

These frogs called hairpin flower frogs.  Trust me you don’t want to get anything except flowers near them or you will have a tangled mess.

These two frogs are of ceramic.

Someone glued this frog to the bottom of a bubble bowl I found at Goodwill.

This lovely flower frog vase has a mate.

I love to put them in the foyer with fresh flowers.

I found this leaf-shaped frog on ETSY.  It is one of my favorites.

My collection includes a couple of colorful glass flower frogs.

This type frog is a cage flower frog.  I keep one on my desk to hold an American flag.

 

Here are a few ways I’ve used my flower frogs for things other than holding flowers.

I used flower frogs to create a little Christmas Tree in the kitchen.

They are wonderful to hold items for display.

My husband’s school photo displayed in a flower frog is part of a Valentine’s Day vignette.

Thank you for joining me today.

  1. That leaf shape! I’ve never seen one like it either! You have quite a collection Sharon. That ‘blue willow’ pair…you could use them for toothbrush holders in the bath…nice big holes. Your Christmas tree tower is cute too.

  2. Ooh, Sharon, that leaf frog is so cool! I also love the pair you use for flowers. I like using the little plain ones for photos and postcards too. Fun collection.

  3. I’ve done a Christmas tree with my frogs too. So cute!

    I have maybe two bins of floral frogs, I haven’t seen in 20 years, and I have a half dozen figural ones. I really should dig them out, but they took up so much space and little hands and glass are never a good idea. Great subject for a post, Thanks, Sandi

  5. I started collecting them “B.C.”, or “Before Children”:) Most are put away and I haven’t purchased one in while, but I do have my favorites. Love using the ones with the teeth for photo displays. Your collection is great. xo Kathleen|Our Hopeful Home

  6. I love the leaf shaped flower frog. I have never seen one before. I also have a collection of them and love them!

  7. Great collection, Sharon! LOVE the leaf shaped frog–that’s a new one for me, and I really like the ceramic ones, too. Thanks for sharing 🙂

  8. Sharon, I have a thing for flower frogs, and a small collection myself. But I’ve never seen some of the frogs you have. It’s a great collection, thanks for sharing it.

  9. I love your collection series, Sharon. That heart shaped frog is the best! Thanks for sharing @Vintage Charm! Pinned!
