craft night project reveal

So our craft night field trip was AWEsome. MB and I couldn't stop the idea pouring through our heads as we strolled through aisles of pottery, dinnerware and candlesticks. I have quite a few more to make from my purchases, but those needed painting, and since there's currently snow on the ground, the weather just isn't peak for spray painting. For now I give you the easy ones:

This piece consists of a funky teal plate we found and a squat white glass vase, $2 each. I think they look splendid together {thanks MB!} and it's a hefty enough piece now to hold fruit, desserts, seashells, or whatever your fancy...

These two are my favorites so far. I think they'll have a new life on my dresser corralling random jewelry. Both bases were candlestick/pillar holders. I really love the brass/bronze warm base contrasting the white of the ceramic. The plate version cost $3.69, and the tulip bowl version was $4.00.

I affixed the pieces using a calking gun and some Loctite construction adhesive which was about $5 but should cover me for all the projects I'll be making. I'm thinking these will make great inexpensive gifts for eclectic entertaining...
