Importing objects?

This is a noob question I know, but is there a way to import objects from one blender scene to another? For example, can I import a vase from vase.blend into a living room scene in room.blend?

Go to file menu —>append then the “load library” pane appears in the 3d view, you browse then your hard drive looking for the blend file, then you click on it, it opens as a folder where you see other subfolders, you choose “object” subfolder, then inside it you chose your object that you recognize by it’s name (thus , it’s very important to give each object an self-talking name.)

I hope it’s not too complicated.
