Salvaging Memories

When someone shows up with broken remains of a precious family heirloom, it’s always the same tearful look.

Peggy broke a very unique clay candle holder that her mother (who had since passed) had given her as a gift.

Seems that a chandelier had fallen on it. Maybe she should have called Angie’s List πŸ˜‰

Here’s what we came up with …

Using the very cool wrought iron, double shelf table that Peggy brought, we cut a piece of concrete backer board for the bottom shelf. That way you can see the finished piece through the glass top and keep it safe from any further damage.

We arranged all of the clay children (as they were on the original piece) in the center and glued the rest of the broken pieces around them. Added a gold veined glass tile for the border and let it dry overnight.

Used a charcoal grout to finish it off, after the mastic dried.

Tears of joy all around!

Doesn’t get much better than this!

The Games People Play

Man Cave DecorWhen I created this piece, I envisioned guys in a basement (Man Cave) throwing darts.

Maybe that explains the finger hooks:-)

Strange how found objects make you feel.

This one wound up with …

  • Magnetic mosaic tiled chalkboard boasting funky finger hooks, off beat bottle caps, domino’s, dice dishes and a vintage Coke glass
    Perfect for a game room or kitchen. 29″ high x 19″ wide
  • Ready to hang

Hope it warms up soon!

Have a great day.Β  – Mara
