Milk Glass

I have recently been adding to my small collection of milk glass. These are a few of my favorite pieces. The pretty vase on the right I won in the 60's at a Chinese auction. I attended it with my grandmother, mother and sister. I think it is the very first thing I ever won! A few years ago I found the covered dish that matches for 10$ at a garage sale. The taller vase was an antique shop find for 12$ and I bought the ruffled dish on ebay and I can't remember the price, but knowing me it was a bargain!
Milk glass is very inexpensive and a great thing to collect if you don't have much to spend.

Hey, Mary, thanks for the vote of confidence. I can't wait to start that project soon. I think it's going to make a huge difference in my DR & the lighter color too. My hubby just shakes his head at all the stuff I tackle. I think he likes it though that I'm a DIYer. Helps out the budget!

Hi Mary
The milk glass is lovely. Is the tall vase with the pink on the inside Fenton? See you Saturday.

Mary, Mary, I don't think I have ever seen milk glass with painted flowers on it. Great taste girl! The covered dish is my favorite.

Marie, I think the taller vase is Fenton. I bought it because it was pink!
Sandy..I love the painted flowers..so delicate.

Thanks for visiting my blog. You really need to see Blue Ridge pottery. So cheerful.

I actually retired very early. I loved teaching but just too much paperwork!
