The display at the last flea market I attended.

One thing I've learned from reading Junk Market books is pretty much anything can be turned into a candle holder!  With this in mind, I recently started creating Tea Cup Candle Holders out of the extra tea cups I've gathered and some sterling silver wine goublets, as well as, some glass candle bases I had in my junk collection.  They can either be used for tea lights, or I've also added inserts, so tapered candles can be added.  Let me know what you think of my new creations...

I have been working on some items that I glue together, but they sometimes come apart, even tho the adhesive says it is for china, glass...Do you have any recommendations for a particular brand that works better, or am I not using it correctly?
