Grape Leaf Patterned Milk Glass

Hello, Dear Ones! Well here I am again with some more milk glass to show you. Today I'm showing you some of my Grape Leaf patterned milk glass. I think this may be one of the most common patterns but it doesn't mean it isn't beautiful.
 Doesn't this make you smile? It sure does me.
 I have two covered candy dishes and don't you love how the sun is shining through the one on the right? See through - like milk!
 And...I have two headless candy dishes. They ain't got no lids, y'all! :) But they are not scary at all.
Now this is a large pedestal bowl. It's about 9 or 10 inches across. I love it. 
 So lovely and see through.
 I recently found these Grape Leafed candlesticks! Aren't they sweet? My candles are lit just for you too!
 So white. So milky. So see through. So loved!



I know I'm going to find lots of ways to decorate with these little lovelies! Do you love milk glass? It can be a really affordable collection to start. The trouble with me is I don't know when to stop because I can always find a piece!! ;)

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Stomp Them Grapes

 Stomp, stomp them grapes and make that wine
Put it in a bottle, boys, and ship it on down the line

Well, I got up this morning and made it downtown
Started mighty early just makin' my rounds
Well, I had me a woman she left me alone
I got to lose these blues before I take myself back home

So stomp, stomp them grapes and make that wine
Put it in a bottle, boys, and ship it on down the line
I said stomp, stomp them grapes and make that wine
'Cause there's a trouble man in trouble with a woman on his mind

Yesterday she loved me, today it's history
Why she should want to leave me is a deep dark mystery
I may not find the answer but I find me a jug
'Cause I'm gonna do some drinkin', boys, it's really got me fog

So stomp, stomp them grapes and make that wine
Put it in a bottle, boys, and ship it on down the line
I said stomp, stomp them grapes and make that wine
There's a trouble man in trouble with a woman

  1. This is the milk glass that I collect. It started with one piece from my mother and over the years has grown to close to 100 pieces. Yard sales, thrift shops, gifted...there are many different ways I have gathered my collection over the years. I love the Grape Leaf pattern milk glass. It can be a simple look or it can be elegant; all on how you display it. Love your collection.

  2. So many choices, so much prettiness! I have some milk glass sitting in a cabinet that's rather dark, so it "pops!"
    Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  3. My mom has hundreds of pieces of milk glass. She keeps saying someday it will be mine. Yikes! I don't love milk glass as much as her, but there are several pieces that I really love. I especially love the covered hen candy dishes! She even has a full set of dinnerware and stemware. (masteinbrink at msndotcom)

  5. Your milk glass is so pretty with the sun shining through it. I have a couple pieces of milk glass but nothing like your beautiful collection.

  6. Shelia, Those are all beautiful pieces. I love that you have candle sticks to match. You could easily mix your white things with any other colors too. Thank you for showing all of us. Blessings for a fabulous weekend, xoxo,Susie

  7. What a lovely collection of milk glass, Shelia. I think I have some dinner/luncheon plates in that pattern in my stash. I should use them for a Christmas table.
    I love the large pedestal bowl, gorgeous.
    Have a great weekend.
