I had a beautiful lampshade arrive in a thousand pieces. Lit, it would have looked like the top of a cherry tree, covered in blossom, (except it was orange). It was FAB.  :cry::cry::cry: Seller gave an immediate refund, including postage, so full marks there, just why,oh, why did he pack such a delicate thing in a tight, thin box with only one layer of bubblewrap?
My next-door-neighbour is an artist, on the lookout for interesting materials for making mosaics. I gave him the bits. :P

Excellent recylcing Sue!  I think we've had this conversation before, but I can't bear to throw away damaged glass.  A mosaic glass artist would be a Godsend!

Max, YOU are an artist!

Yeah, but not a mosaic one!  Erm...although I have done a couple of mosaic pieces.  Glass is sharp though, that's the problem.  I wouldn't want to make something that slashes at people!  lolol!

 :D Only last night when I was putting the bowl of water down in my bedroom for the cats night-time drinkies, I noticed that the piece of plastic sheet I put it on was looking a bit manky and thought to myself, "I must get a proper place-mat for this!" (Two of the cats being Bengals, they tend to splash when they drink  :roll: )

Then I suddenly remembered my Walther 'Nymphen' (mermaid) tray, which was cracked and which I had repaired by that wonderful Basil Loveridge  :D  A little while ago I was lucky enough to get a replacement in perfect condition so I put the original away.  (I couldn't just chuck it out 'cos it's still very beautiful - and I did pay for it to be repaired!   :roll:  )

So now the cats have their night-time drink on a beautiful glass tray!   :D  I just hope those spoilt girls appreciate it!  :twisted:  :wink:  :lol:
