    since joining this site this morning -- i have received a few replies and interest on items for recycling

    all though this really is not quilt related -- rather than reply to all -- i thought i could peak some interest to those of you who are interested in making old new again and useful -- although i do use one in my sewing room to hold my threads, scissors, bobbins etc -- love it when i walk into my room and the light has captured the glass and makes the pretty prisms on the walls

    one was even used at a wedding to hold the guest cards and money envelopes -- it is the pic using the frosted white dishware

    Wow those are pretty. I wouldn't be able to use them for sewing, as I know I would knock them over and break them.

    several of you have the question of gluing -- the glassware has to be perfectly level both horizonally and vertically before stacking -- this requires grind the pieces to fit -- once that is completed the glue of choice is E6000

    They are all very pretty. Very good recycling. On the red one, the white dish on top makes it look like a lace doily.

    Those are beautiful, around here they make them as yard art, but they actually screw the glass together. They are really pretty when the sun is shining through them.
