I was at TJMaxx a few days ago and found this cute little cup.
I looked at it and thought how adorable it was but couldn't think of what I would be able to do with it. So I walked around a little more and I saw this beautiful laced something but I couldn't tell what it was because it was buried under a ton of other items.
I started moving all the stuff off that was piled on top of this, whatever it was, and then I realized it was a beautiful cake stand that had the actual stand part missing. So my little head started thinking about that cute little cup a few aisles back. Eek, someone else might have already gotten it! I grabbed the plate and hurried back for the cup. I put the cup under the dish where the stand should've been and it fit perfectly! Oh yeah, momma's got it going on now! Woot, woot, woot!
Just in case the stand was somewhere else in the dishes area I found the clerk for that
area and asked him if he knew of the whereabouts of the stand. He and I looked
a little more but there was no stand to be found. He was so nice and told me
if I'd buy it that he'd clearance it. Hot dog! I'll take it. After all I had
to buy it because I had already found the cup to make it AWESOME again.
So off to home I go with my treasures in hand. My hubby happens to take a look in my bag when I got home and he innocently and judgingly asked, "hey honey, why did you buy a broken plate and one cup?" Duh! He's been married to me for 33 years, you think he would know not to ask those kinds of questions. I explained my plan and he gave me that husband look of "seriously".
Here's my finished result. Some glue and it was done!
What do you think? Would you pay $3 for this?
Creative and so cute! But now I really want some donuts!ReplyDelete
I like this cup. For me it looks a little bit like a tropy, probably by the gold element :) Regards http://made-in-joy.blogspot.comReplyDelete
Awesome! This is a great re-purposing project. I did something similar to this by taking a lidded sugar bowl and gluing it to a candlestick making an apothecary jar.ReplyDelete

That's exactly what I would do, it looks very nice. I love the cup.ReplyDelete

Okay, Mama needs another coffee (been up since 4:15 AM). I complimented Kelly from My Soulful Home for this adorable cake stand instead of you Angel. I love it! Happy to be cohosting this party with you! ~Marie@The Interior FrugalistaDelete
