A trashy Christmas present

ess1January 4, 2005

I got this adorable dangle thing from my sister for Christmas (she didn't make it). I wonder what the top "plate" is that the old bottles dangle from ? It's kind of thick glass with a large center hole and 12 small holes around it. Can anyone tell from this picture? It looks like a fun project to copy.

The large glass thing looks like a fresh flower frog...I have a couple that look like that. It gives me an idea, now!!

Hey, neat gift! Yep, looks like an old glass flower "frog" to me, too!

What a great idea for the old glass flower frog - now if I can just find it! I know I have one somewhere - that will be my project when I get home from work - looking for the frog! Thanks for the great idea.

:) I not only have a frog just like it- I still have the depression glass bowl it fits.

it's quite an effective little device for rooting cuttings of impatiens and other 'easy rooting' things.

I think you could use a old phone dial too.

ESS do you mind if I post your photo over on the Garden Junk site?

Our POTM for January is anything from glass and I love what you got. Could give some of the regulars an idea or two

What an adorable idea! Love the frog! I really enjoy hanging lots of glass thing-a-ma-jigs in the windows to catch the light and create fun for those days when we cannot be outside! I know I have some of those frogs somewhere--now, let's go look!

It's a bobeche. It is used under the "candlestick" in a crystal chandelier. The little holes are for the crystals that hang from it. They are fairly easy to find and come in all sizes and are nearly always glass or crystal.

It also looks like the base of an old glass lamp. I have many old glass lamp bases and they can come apart, so this may be the base. I have one that also has the holes around edge. It is just decoration for the lamp base.

Doesn't look very "trashy" to me - I guess that was a while ago.

It looks beautiful, now.
