Show & Tell Friday: Mini Pedestal Plate

Hello blog friends.....welcome to another Show and Tell Friday, graciously hosted once again by Cindy at My Romantic Home!

I always seem to have about three or four small projects going on at once, with probably another dozen larger projects that are always looming in the background. Somehow I never seem to get too much accomplished!

This was a small project that I did sort of on spur of the moment. I wanted to make a small pedestal to stack on top of my vintage Fenton hobnail milk glass cake pedestal.
Now I can use both to make a tiered server, or use them separately.
To make the mini pedestal, I used a milk glass plate from Goodwill and a small milk glass vase, also purchased at Goodwill. The vase was 49 cents, the plate was $1. I used Gorilla Glue to glue the vase to the bottom. Very cute, very simple....and very cheap! (My kind of project!!)

Thanks for joining me!

Understanding exactly what you mean by getting too many projects going on at once. It takes up a lot of time and sometimes too much but at least you managed a few photos with your Fenton milkglass!

Sunny greetings from Georgia/USA

What a great idea!!! Just from the picture on Cindy's site, I really thought it was an antique. One piece.

I collect vintage artglass and I thought it extremely unusual, but stunning.

You are a genius!!!

Nice job on your pedastal plate. I would never have thought about using the milk glass in that way. How creative.
