X & Y

The letter for this week's ABC Wednesday reminds me of the subject that I wasn't fond of in College, the Algebra where X&Y are always present. Oh, I was horrible at this subject.  It's the only subject where I got a low grade of 77 wahhh, it was a bummer as my grades were 80 and up.  

Anyhow, I am sharing these set of display items that I bought in Korea.  I was busy fi-X-ing it this morning using multi purpose cement glue.  These were broken together with other stuff when our son tried to climbed to our corner piece of furniture full of display items. 
The remains...
Here's after  fixing  one of the vases and the basket.  You can still see where I glued them back together.  See, this is kinda like  solving the X & Y of algebra hehehe.
Hubby told me to just throw it away, that it's not worth fiXing  it but I couldn't, as it holds a sentimental value for me.  I hid the  flaw of the basket by putting some artificial flowers inside it.
Whatcha think?

Di na halata.....hehehehe! I broke one of my precious elephants and I fixed it by using cement glue. It took me an hour to finish it. Though up close, makit-an jud nimo na naay buak pero di nahalata kung layo.

Beautiful, you did a great job fiXing them.

They are lovely, and with the flowers hiding the flaws, they look as good as new.

I remember the days of young ones around the house, it seemed everytime I turned around something was falling to the floor. I finally went to wood lamps and anything else I could find that was cute in wood.

What a clever idea to glue it back together. The flowers truly concealed the broken basket vase. Happy a good day dear! :)

You did a wonderful job of putting it all back together - it looks great. I was never good at algebra either, or any kind of math for that matter.

This was an eXcellent post for "X" day!

I also hate Algebra because, just like you, I also got 77 there which, together with another 77 in Trigonometry, disqualified me from graduating with honors in college although I was a consistent full scholar since my second year in college. You really value items with sentimental values because you opted to fix the broken vases. Thanks for the post. God bless you all always.
