Lace Edge Milk Glass

Hello, Dear Ones! I wanted to share with you I had my followup visit with my surgeon on the 7th and it was a good visit. He said I'm healing well and will continue to wear the immobilizer for 3 more weeks or maybe a little longer. I've started my physical therapy with folks coming to my home to work with me on bending my knee - then I can take the immobilizer off. So I would still love for you to say a little prayer for me when you think of it as I heal and get the use of my leg back. Okie dokie, 'nuf said.

Today and I want to show you a few more pieces of my Milk Glass. How I love my Milk Glass.
 This pattern is called Lace Edge. Unfortunately, I only have two pieces from this pattern and when I can walk and drive again I'll go out looking for more pieces to add to my collection.
 First I have this pretty little bowl. Wouldn't it look cute to wind ribbon in and out of the little lacy edge? Hmm...
 Next I have this little footed bowl. The bowl part is a little smaller than my other piece.
Two lovely little pieces with a pretty little lacy edge.  Now I'm wondering where I'll use these! 

Okie, dokie, short and sweet today and I always thank you for taking the time to pop in to see me.

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia :)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Chantilly Lace
Hello, baby
Yeah, this is the Big Bopper speakin'
Oh, you sweet thing
Do I what? Will I what?
Oh baby, you know what I like
Chantilly Lace had a pretty face
And a ponytail hangin' down
A wiggle in her walk and a giggle in her talk
Make the world go 'round
Ain't nothing in the world like a big eyed girl
To make me act so funny, make me spend my money
Make me feel real loose like a long necked goose
Like a girl, oh baby, that's a-what I like
What's that, baby?
But, but, but, oh, honey
But, oh baby, you know what I like
Chantilly Lace had a pretty face
And a ponytail hangin' down
A wiggle in her walk and a giggle in her talk, Lord
Make the world go 'round, 'round, 'round
Ain't nothing in the world like a big eyed girl
To make me act so funny, make me spend my money
Make me feel real loose like a long necked goose
Like a girl, oh baby, that's a-what I like
What's that honey?
Pick you up at 8 and don't be late
But baby, I ain't got no money, honey
Oh, alright, honey, you know what I like
Chantilly Lace had a pretty face
Ponytail a-hangin' down
A wiggle in her walk and a giggle in her talk, Lord
Make the world go 'round
Ain't nothing in the world like a big eyed girl
To make me act so funny, make me spend my money
Make me feel real loose like a long necked goose
Like a girl, oh baby, that's a-what I like

  3. Good to hear how your knee is progressing. Prayers continue for full recovery and healing. I have a large footed piece like this. It has been an Easter 'nest' filled with beautiful marble eggs and assorted other things through the years. I see pieces occasionally and I want them all. Restraint is the key here - my house is quite small!

  4. Your poor knee! Honestly it's so easy to get injured as we get older. Thank goodness for at home PT. I think you should put ribbon or lace around the bowls, Spring or Easter colors. Mmmm little Easter eggs, jelly beans, etc. Take care and before you know it it will be Spring and with a spring in you step! Kathleen in Az
    oh! A birds nest and a sweet birdie too!

  6. Very pretty edging on your milk glass, Shelia! I hope you get Country Living Magazine (January issue) as they have an article on milk glass I'm sure you would enjoy! So happy to hear you got a good report! Keep up the PT and I'm thinking of you and your family, dear one. ♥

  7. I have a couple pieces with the lace edge too - just love them. Take it easy and do what the doctor/PT people say - hopefully you'll soon be back up and running - so to speak.

  8. Sheila, those are two very sweet pieces. I don't have any lace edged milk glass but I do have a beautiful clear glass lace edged cake plate that I truly love. The lace edge is so delicate and makes for a pretty piece. May you continue to heal so you can get back out there and find more sweet pieces. Blessings, Cindy

  9. That is such a pretty pattern. Years ago I had a piece of pale turquoise milk glass in that pattern. I gave it to a friend and have been kicking myself ever since.
    Glad to hear you are doing so well and healing so nicely. xo Diana

  11. So glad you continue to heal. I love your milk glass. I think of all the pieces my mom and my grandmother had and I wish I knew where it was now!! I'd love to have it back. I remember my grandmother always had one bowl always filled with "hard candy".
    Again, glad to hear you are progressing. That therapy can be so hard sometimes!! Hope sweet Carter continues to improve, also. ♡

  16. You have the prettiest collection of milk glass, Shelia. My late sister collected it as well so this brings back good memories.

    I'm going to scroll back to see what happened to your knee. Know I'm praying for you---I've been a not so great blogger lately. :(

  22. Hi Sheila! Nice to know you are feeling and doing better. Baby steps for sure.
    I, too, love this milk glass style. Years ago I collected it and, yes, it makes a cute seasonal decor piece with adding some ribbon to the reticulated edges.

    Happy New Year!
