    I guess 1 out of 15 isn't bad. I received my first box full of shattered depression glassware. How depressing. But... I hope to make a mosaic out of it so that it will not be a complete loss. I just cannot throw away such a beautiful part of history.

      Oh the joy! >.<

      Oh the no good. =(

      Ouch, sorry for that happening, but it does. Hopefully you won't have any more pieces to add to the mosaic and that project will take awhile

      ikr tom, but I'll make something out of it.
      Thanks Kerry... I hope it doesn't take too long, I've never tried it before.

      I look at the broken glass in a different way. I break glass intentionally. You can't use a modern flat edge scraper to clean a hand planed piece of furniture or you will ruin it. Broken glass works wonders, even in odd contours. As with everything in life, one man's trash is another man's treasure.
    6. Aimathena Aimathena, 8 years ago
      Oh. well, I will just stick with a mosaic. Sounds more do-able

      More aim-bay packages?
      How depressing!:(

      Aimathena, want two fractured IVY design Franciscan plate and saucer to go with your shattered Depressionware? If you throw them at a wall it helps to relieve stress......but I hate further damaging vintage glass too.
    12. Aimathena Aimathena, 8 years ago
      LoL AboundingOddities. That sounds great! =^)
      I was really sad at first but then quickly thought about making a wall art mosaic with them to go along with the glassware I've been collecting.
    13. Aimathena Aimathena, 8 years ago

    19. Aimathena Aimathena, 8 years ago
      Oh my... I did say I would make chocolates, but I think Blunder claimed them.
    20. valentino97 valentino97, 8 years ago
      Sorry! I can't believe how well you're taking this. I would be sad -think this was one I really liked. Are those unopened pkgs? Would like to see your mosaics.

      I know what you mean...I still have my broken Kralik Amphora..in the box...sorry!!!!
    22. Aimathena Aimathena, 8 years ago
      Hi Val, thank you! =^)
      I didn't want to dwell on the loss, so I focused on what I could still do with them.
      I've never made a mosaic, so this is going to be real fun.
      I haven't started it yet, but I will post pictures after I make it.
      With the exception of two, they were unopened packages.
      I received another busted items today. I contacted the seller this morning but no word back as of yet.
    23. Aimathena Aimathena, 8 years ago
      Thank you Lee xo my heart broke for you when that happened.
      Were you ever reimbursed?
    24. gargoylecollector gargoylecollector, 8 years ago
      Glass tile/mosaic thinset and unsanded grout and you'll be ready to go!I've been putting up a glass tile backsplash,and it's real easy,this would be the same idea.Now get to the big box store,get the stuff, and get to work !!!!!!
    25. Aimathena Aimathena, 8 years ago
      I will Gargo, thank you for the supply list. I'm a girly girl but I love Home Depot =^)
      I'll get to it once all the packages are delivered, incase there are more misfortunes.
