It's time for Treasures & Trinkets Thursday......you know what to do!
1. Link up something you love (it has to be something you own)
2. Link back to my page...it's just the nice thing to do. :)
3. Grab my Treasures & Trinkets button if you'd like to remember to link up again. (it's a great reminder tool!)
Okey Dokey now, here we go!
Wanna see what my mom made me? (and yes mom, I'm talking about you again!)...... she always says, "do you know how much you talk about me in your blog"? LOL :-)
I think this is very ingenius myself!!
Okay, here it is.............
If you look at this very closely you'll see that the bottom is a margarita glass turned upside down, and the base is a clear plate. She married the two together with two part epoxy (available at Walmart) The dome is actually one of those candle holders that come in an iron base, only it's upside down. She used epoxy and put a drawer pull on top for a handle. She actually made me a set of two...........isn't she a smartie pants!
Here's a couple more pics up close
If you didn't have the dome and still wanted to make something, I would think you could vary the sizes of the glasses and plates and make a three tier candy dish too.
I just thought these were the cutest things! At Christmas I fill them up completely with ornaments and at Easter, sweet little sparkly eggs! :) Hope you enjoy!
