Vintage dish cake plates.....

The kids had a snow day AGAIN today. This is the most shoveling I remember doing in years. So like yesterday, I only have a small project to share today.....

You have probably seen the dessert and jewelry dishes around blogland that people are making from vintage dishes. Today I am going to share two that I put together.

I purchase the dishes and vases from thrift stores. I pay anywhere from 50 cents to $1 a piece. Here are the items for the two I will be sharing today.

To attach the pieces I use an epoxy that adheres ceramic and glass to each other.

The finished products are great for desserts, cakes, fruits, soap, jewelry, etc....

Be sure to stop by and enter my Etsy seller giveaway.

Check out the great parties I am linking this project up to HERE
