Phosphorus centerpiece

I found this old lab tray marked Phosphorus at a local university salvage joint for a buck.  It took 6 months to find the 12 matching glasses to use as vases that also fit the dual holes. At 65 cents each, these thrift store vessels make this a very cool centerpiece.  It is my new favorite home for end of season wildflowers.

I would love to find something like this and I would re purpose it in a different way, relative to my business. Found something similiar yesterday, but it was $40, not $1, so had to pass it by. Thanks for sharing!
