I don't know about you guys, but I am either going full steam or not at all.
I still have one more in the works, but that is going to take a couple of days. When you see it you will know why.
I have been so inspired by all the wonderful work here, as you will be able to see.
Thanks to all of you creative kiddos.
This one is from a lamp base and a great bowl I found at GW.Photobucket
Here is the tea lite holder I made back in the ceramic days. I like the swirls to match the bowl and the different textures of the glazes I used.
This shows the crash glass I put in the candle holder.
One of two cobalt and cut glass. I love this combo!

Last (finally huh?) class and vintage china plate.
I found a little rose vase to match the plate for inside.
I used a sugar bowl in keeping with the "kitchen"theme for the middle.

Here's the totem made from pots and mason jars. Thanks for remembering them. They do look more rustic and primitive than the fancy glass ones...but I like those too. Lol! These were so easy to make but I did make the mistake of using plastic saucers at the top and they would not stay clue why. I redid it using a larger regular clay pot on the top and covered it with jute up to the rim. I figured a plant could be set down inside of it. So it went from a birdbath to a planter.
