Some things are just meant to be...

Pin It Now!

I saw this glass dispenser at Marshalls about a month ago. I had it in my cart and when I got to the check stand I changed my mind. It was $49.99 and I decided I shouldn't be spending that much money. Someone else must have bought it because the next time I went in, it was gone. Of course, later I regretted not buying it. I went back into Marshalls last week (I'm addicted to that place) and saw they had a new one in. The best part....it was $10 less than before....only $39.99! I figured it was just meant to be! Now the bad part. I brought it home and washed it and as I was tilting it in the sink I hit the pedestal on the tile and a piece broke off! You can see it in the photo below. I just have the piece sitting there, I still need to glue it together. Anyone know a good glue to use on glass?

Saturday was a great day for lemonade. It was so hot, in the 90s. Way too hot for me! I hope you all had a great weekend.

Did you hear the great new about Victoria Magazine? If not, go over to visit Carol at Raised in Cotton, (one of my new favorite blogs) to hear some great news!

Cindy, that's a gorgeous glass container & I can see why you fell in love with it. I think you can glue that piece back on with some clear craft glue & it shouldn't be too noticable.

Cindy,

I am so glad I visited your site before I purchased one from TouchStone for $50.00 - I'm headed to Marshall's.

I got the news release through google alert the same day it was announced and I've been goofy happy about it ever since. I am looking forward to this soooo much.

A really good glue that can be used on glass, metal, etc is E6000
Found in the craft department of Walmarts for under 3 dollars. Just not sure about it contacting anything food is used in. I have used it on glass on glass. ( the gold fish bowl to candle stick I Showed on my blog-it has held perfect. Hope this helps......

Pretty container! Hot here too...by June I'll be melting.

Great news about Victoria! I wonder if the new version will be like the original magazine or if it'll be like the version they had right before it went out of print.

Have a good evening!

Cindy; The most reliable glue to use on glass/glass seams is a UV curing glue. I purchase mine from Sundance Art Glass in CA, it's called KOA something. Superglue also has a version which cures in sunlight (otherwise you have to use a black light). I hope it works for you, that's a mightly pretty lemonade container!

Cindy, save yourself lots of work... just sand the table alil bit, prime then paint then shabby it here and there!
NO NEED to strip it if you are painting it anyways!

I am jealous...my roses are just now showing some green!

Thank you for shareing your pretties with us all!

I have had my eye on that same jar, and I just haven't been able to buy it yet. It kills me to walk past it. Looks great with lemonade!
