    I'm posting this because this is one of but a number of situations I have with my "treasures." I found this lovely cased glass vase at an estate sale in perfect condition. It is very heavy and was very well made. I didn't pay much at all for it. The bottom has a paper label of "Malaga, Spain, 1971." I'm guessing this was a vase bought on a trip decades ago. However, what do I now do with it that I have caused a hairline crack from top to bottom and a couple of chips on the top rim? What would you do?

      That is some very good advice, Malkey. The quality and the personal label have been the things preventing me from throwing it out. I think I'll keep it for awhile longer.
