That is lovely, how nice to breathe new life into an old treasure


Now that is pretty. Is Mod Podge the best type of adhesive to use for a project like this?


Charlotte, your creativity is never ending! Such a beautiful plate. Forgive my ignorance but what is mod podge. I'm guessing it's a kind of glue. I'm going to be looking out for glass plates now.


This is lovely. I have done decoupage but not on glass. it was interesting what you had to say. Thank you Clarice


Love it. Going to try it. Leaving for thrift store now, to search for sweet saucers. Thanks for the inspiration!


This is very sweet! I love to use sheet music, but then I get side tracked because I run to the piano to play what I'm cutting up for crafts! Hope you find some good *treasures* at the thrift store! And, I hope we get to see the lot!


Mod Podge (Plaid Enterprises) is an adhesive product like white glue. You can use any decoupage medium that dries clear.


Another lovely idea for valentine or anytime. Have to get me some mod podge! Nel

ohh! I love it!!


wow, this is so...lovely, Charlotte! Oh, I love thrifting for a project in mind, how fun. Oh, and you sure know how to breathe life and beauty into old things. There is nothing like things that have a bit of history in them! xo Lia


Charlotte that is so pretty and it seems easy enough. I did have that notebook problem a few weeks ago, maybe I can get my confidence back if I give this a go. LOL
