The word beautiful is applied using rub-ons.  I glued earrings on to the three legs and hung a piece from an old necklace on the handle.

 I pick up these old coffee carafes whenever I see them and re-invent them for a multitude of uses.  This one became a beautiful vase.

texasjunkermom writes: Janis, we used to have one of these, but it wasn't nearly so pretty. This is very nice and what a good use for it! You did a beautiful job and it brought back many memories, good ones. My dad and my future husband drank many cups of coffee from ours. Thanks for the memories! Totsy Posted: 8:08 pm on April 28th

Junk_Sophisticate writes: Beautiful, Janis! I have seen these while thrifting, however, I must say you have found the most beautiful ones! Those that I've seen are much less ornate. Love your added embellishments too!
