Need ideas for using antique glass for something!

Answered
I inherited a big bunch of antique glass from both my side & my husbands side of the families. I want to use it for something(other than holiday dinners). I know about the glass "flowers" glued together for the garden but I can only use so many in my small yard. I'm looking for suggestions on how & where I can use more of them. Thanks.

    Repurpose them into lights or make Christmas ornaments with them if they are small. The larger ones make great lamps too.

    Thanks for your suggestion. Almost all of my dishes are clear glass, which I should have specified.

    Is it cut glass?

    You can break them into smaller pieces and make some glass mosaics to give as gifts this Christmas and other holidays too.

    Can we see some pics? I know it would help me think of things to do with them.

      These are just a few photos. I have a total of 60 photos but these are pretty representative of what I have. Any ideas you can give me will be appreciated. If you recognize any of these pieces, I'd appreciate info about them. I'm pretty much out of the loop when it comes to glass. Thanks.

    You could make some plate stands using plates and bowls. The vases in the last picture could be used in between to elevate. The last picture those cups and plates with the rings would make perfect jewelry holders as the holes around the outer edge could be used to put in hoop earrings.

    Thanks for your ideas. I'm still collecting suggestions before I decide what to do with all these dishes!
