Sometimes it is hard to figure out what to do with bits and peices we collect from loved ones or bought cuz we thought it was cute. Grandma had these three peices from her mom and she loved them. I know this because she kept them in a box hidden. She put the things she loved away for safe keeping but rarely got to enjoy them because they were away. I on the other hand beleive I should see and enjoy the things I love and cherish. with a good glass glue I glued the two cups together end to end with the handals opposite and ordimental. I then glued the plate to the rim of the cup. It was that simple. Now it is used all the time and sits on my dining table with a candle on top.
