Ever break a memory？ Last week， I did – and this week I put it back together in a whole new way.A few years ago， my husband and I bought a beautiful set of pottery cups at a little place on Orcas Island up in the Puget Sound， and every time we used thempersonalized gifts for 1 year old， they reminded us of that lovely week we spent camping and kayaking in the San Juan Islands. Until last week， when I knocked one of our cups off the counter and broke it. At first， I thought I would just glue it back together， but one large chip was completely missing， so I sadly threw the pieces into our bathroom garbage can. They sat there for two days before I retrieved them to give them a second life.
When a special piece of glass or pottery breaks， it’；s easy to give it new life as a tiled mosaic –； on a frame， a tabletop， a serving tray， or just about anything. Our cup was just the right size to cover a 5×；7 picture frame. Materials：

Next time you break a memory (or your kids do)， don’t just throw it away – save it!
