i love these.  i wish i had glass cutting tools - or knew how to do any glass cutting at all.

Thanks!  That's why I went to a glazier.  He did 3 cheapo thrifted wine glasses for me for about $5 (US). I know him pretty well, so he may have been cutting me a little deal, but we're business associates and I know that he feels comfortable charging for his time so you might find a similar price at your local glass shop.  He warned me that I may lose the glasses, but since they were not more than $2 each, it seemed worth the risk.

Thrifted dessert plates on thrifted wine glass stems made into cupcake stands! 

Before I ever saw these made with candlesticks, I saw them made with wine glass stems and fell in love.  After looking at all kinds of thrift store candlesticks, I decided that the thrift store wine glass stems were a bit more the elegant look I was going for - their candlesticks were generally clunky and pressed glass (showing the seam) rather than blown.  I don't have much in the way of glass tools, but I do know an awesome glazier who likes the challenge of new things so I had him cut off most of the bowls and grind the remaining bit level. 

This is a xmas gift for a friend that I haven't been able to get together with yet:

This was a gift for my mom, she uses hers on her dresser for holding bracelets (pardon the detritus on the patio table - I went to wipe it off and realized it was frozen in there):

And some more of that dessert plate, because it's pretty and appears to be hand painted:

I was going to suggest coffee filters and tea bags, but saw that they'd already been suggested.  Just as I was clicking back, I thought of fringe made of drinking straws!  Which then made me think of paper cocktail umbrellas and coffee stirrers and plastic coffee cup lids and jar lids.

Sign me up with the I Love the Fabric, I Love the Length, I Love Your Eat-in Kitchen and I Love to Ogle Firemen Clubs!  In recent years I've become a big fan of side panel drapes myself and made a lined pair a few years ago.  I'm hitting "This Rocks!"

I don't know who all here has built a house or is involved in constrution at all, but I found when going through the process that the house and the rooms seem to get bigger and smaller as different phases are completed.  Wall foundation?  Bigger.  Subfloor?  Smaller.  Stud walls?  Bigger.  Drywall? Smaller.  Etc. 

Now that the _________ has been ____ed to the _________, annacharlotte's house looks a little bigger than when it was ______ing _____ in unspecified number of pieces. 

Oof.  I'm getting a cold or something so I have a feeling my wee house is going to be sitting a few days, because at least for today I think all I've got in me is staring vacuously at the internets and maybe a DVD later.  Sigh.  It's days like today that I miss TV.

Why not paint or decoupage the garbage can? Or maybe get 2 smaller ones for under the desks?
