    Tiffany, this is soooo cool!!! Thanks for sharing. I’m going to have happy thrift store excursions coming up! One of my Etsy teammates had posted your video in our Facebook group. So happy to have found you. I look forward to more. I had never heard of the adhesive you shared, and am thrilled. Is it along the lines of E-6000 in odor and manageability? Jc

    the mushroom from the cover photo would look so nice with an led light under its "cap"!

    How did the Alcohol ink hold up?  If it was a "limited time" decoration, how long did it hold up and what is your location (for weather condition factors)?
    Thank You so much for sharing your cool ideas!

    Very Cool!!! Can you show us how to do the alcohol ink? I love that gazing ball & also the crystal stick candle holder with the bowl. Now did you use that alcohol ink in this one also?

    Did the alcohol ink fade in the sun?

  12. MsCerise007 on April 24, 2019 at 8:58 pm

    Very cool idea

  13. rjkopp on April 24, 2019 at 9:00 pm

    neat idea, now stick some solar lights in them and you have a nice night show too!

  14. My Life! on April 24, 2019 at 9:01 pm

    Thank you so much!

    Can you show more of the back of the glass flowers? What to use to hold the copper pipe? Thank you!

  16. BeNice on April 24, 2019 at 9:02 pm

    Nope.

  17. Dorkus Finkelstein on April 24, 2019 at 9:03 pm

    Very nice!
    If it were me, I’d hide a solar powered light under the mushroom, and under the globe on the margarita glass.
    You inspired me…so off to the thrift store!!!

    P.S. I wonder if you could spray paint the inside of the globe to make a mirror?
    Maybe silver or chrome would work.

    Thank you so much!

    Hi Faye! It’s so great to reconnect with our Aleene’s fans! We are working on a new show so who knows, maybe you will see Momma Aleene back for some special on-air visits! [Tiffany]

    So happy to have re-found you.  I was an avid Creative living viewer until my cable company dropped it.  I have often wished I could find you all again!

    they would shatter at my house; between dogs, cats, birds, hail and a little nephew.

  26. My Life! on April 24, 2019 at 9:22 pm

    Thanks for the tip!

  27. My Life! on April 24, 2019 at 9:22 pm

    The bowl on the crystal stick candle holder was all glass. The coloring was a design element of the glass. I did attempt the alcohol ink (as I mentioned in this video) but it did not last. I recommend that you use a glass paint. All you need to do is drip a couple of colors at a time inside the bowl. Then rotate the bowl to get the colors to move around. Do not add too many colors at a time because they can turn very muddy. Let the colors dry and then add the next color, etc. [Tiffany]

    love this idea tiffany used to watch your moms show all the time loved it wished she was still on i miss her show

  29. My Life! on April 24, 2019 at 9:23 pm

    Yes, the alcohol ink did fade in the sun so I suggest that you try outdoor paint. [Tiffany]
