Materials: Florera candle dish Description: I think this was once an ashtray, but the tray part was missing when some jerk dumped it by the side of the road. Those cherubs looked so irresistibly tacky that I knew I just had to do something with it.
I found an 18 inch stainless steel Florera candle dish at half price at Ikea (I think they are discontinued). I drilled a hole in the middle, and voila : instant conversation starter! It also makes a serviceable table for my teapot and cups (It’s more stable than it might look).
