Hit up the Goodwill again …I am telling you…if you haven’t shopped your Goodwill you are missing out! It is a treasure chest of tossed out goodies just waiting to find a new life! I spent $2.00 on this visit…and I paid in quarters because that is the cash I had on me! I never have cash…does anyone carry cash?? I mean the debit card is the best thing since sliced bread…anywho…
2 dinner plates, 1 dessert plate and 2 wine/parfait type glasses….

The plates had this Christmasy sagey green color design…perfect for Christmas cookies…am I right or am I right??!?!

I used my 527 cement (perfect for glass and ceramic…) Turned the dessert plate and one dinner plate upside down. Adhere the glass to the center of the plate with a bead of cement. Allow to dry for 24 hours.

After the plates have dried….turn right side up….Place one dinner plate on the counter…then place the other dinner plate that has the glass adhered to it…then the smaller dessert plate.
Can’t you see Christmas cookies??? I know—it was MADE to hold cookies!! Note: This is assembled to be taken apart…so the pieces can move. You can place a small piece of clear wax on the glasses so that they don’t move. I am planning on placing the display on my counter and then assembling the cookies around it. Would be fabulous for appetizers too!
FYI….also found this amazing chocolate brown corduroy coat for $5 ….barely used…seriously looks off the rack….It has become my favorite coat! Sorry for poor picture quality!!
