I hate broken things. I toss them if they get chipped.
Why? Because I grew up with glued and chipped stuff. Elmers glue was my mom's best friend.
Sometimes her frugality drove me up the wall, so when I went out on my own I was determined not to have broken or chipped stuff in the house. Well sometimes bad things happens and things get broken, as a 50 year old mom of two tornadoes I have learned that sometimes you have to glue... here is a trick I learned while doing pottery.
Once that set, I mixed up a bit of plaster of Paris and I smoothed it over the cracks on the out side of the pot.
