Milk Glass

Milk glass is still one of my favorite collectibles.  I'm more selective now since I have a huge collection, but I can't pass it by when I see it at a sale.

I spent some time recently rearranging and condensing my collection.

In one of my china cabinets, I group milk glass with some crystal pieces, colored glass, hammered aluminum and a few pink/blue milk glass pieces.  I like to use lace doilies in the china cabinets.  To me it looks more complete and decorated.

I have a "small" obsession with white enamel pitchers which you can see mixed in on the top with milk glass pieces.

After cleaning out my books, I used some of that space for my milk glass collection so that my rooms didn't look too cluttered.  I didn't use doilies on the book shelves.  I like the look here without them.

I love how it looks with ironstone and cream colored pottery vases and hammered aluminum. There's always a place for hammered aluminum.  (This piece I found last year at the Wendell August Forge showroom in Grove City PA).

Since there was a small open space next to my china cabinet, I decided not to waste it.  I love how the bone china flowers look inside the milk glass piece.  They are sitting on a small wooden chair that is a perfect fit for the space.

Hope you find some treasures this weekend. Happy treasure hunting!
