Just a week or so ago someone posted about picking up tea or coffee saucers and not the cups. She had a brilliant use for them and we all said “why did I not think of that.” Of course at the time I had no way to get out to do any thrifting so I allowed it to float to the dark corner of my mind.
The opportunity arose and I was in a local Goodwill store and spotted this.
Would you have bought this?
The parts not covered in tape are sparkly and delicate in appearance.
Of course there was no way of identifying a maker.
I looked for a while to see if there were any matching cups or other dishes.
And of course I remembered that someone had recently posted a wonderful idea for the stray saucers. I am hoping you (my brilliant readers) can remember who, when, where and remind me.
They are pretty in their own right and even if only used under a tealight candle will sparkle and add beauty to a tablescape.
And they are not a fine china or a special name.

But if I have a candle burning on them or glue them to a pedestal or candle stick base no one will see that.
So- please refresh my memory and tell me who recently talked about orphaned saucers
or leave your own ideas of projects in the comments.
I really will appreciate it and then when anyone asks why did you spend $1.49 on those (there are 6) … I will have more than one great answer.
