Milk Glass Table Setting

On Monday, I received a book I ordered that has a ton of milkglass in it and information about the pieces. I buy what I like and I am super cheap so I know I'm not overspending, but I wanted more information about the history/brands, etc. I came across this ad with an entire tablesetting of milk glass.



I'm off to a good start with my little collection of dishes, but I had to wonder - How long would it take to have enough for an entire table like that? A lifetime of treasure-hunting, I'm sure.

And, my poor mom. She is in Vermont with my dad painting their little red cabin white with yellow trim after seeing a house in Lewes, DE with those colors. It was such a fun combination that you don't see often. I can't wait to see it! She will be home for one day before a business trip to Florida and I plan to stalk her to go look for some milk glass that I passed up on my last trip there.

  1. What a fabulous tablescape. Milkglass is so pretty, but I don't have many pieces. I can't wait to see your collection all set up in a tablescape. Love it. Hugs, Marty
