Milk Glass Obsession

Hello, Dear Ones! Well, fall is around the corner although I can't feel it yet, so I thought it was time to change things up in my china cabinet.
 I've been collecting Milk Glass for some time now and decided I would mass all I could together in my china cabinet.



I've opened up the doors so you can see it better. There's just something about Milk Glass that makes me happy...it's bright and white, comes in so many styles and shapes and you can absolutely use any and every piece at any time whether casually or formally. Like I said Milk Glass makes me happy!
Okie dokie, y'all sit down and stay for a spell as I have a lot of Milk Glass to show you.
 I've divided up each little section of the china cabinet so you can see my pieces better. At first I tried to put the individual patterns together but it just wouldn't work. So a mod podge of Milk Glass. Here you'll see my square cake plate, some compotes, sugar and creamers, salt and pepper shakers and candle sticks.
 Bubble glass and I'm not sure what the other patterns are. You know what? I don't care! :)
Just so you'll know - I'm smiling now! ;)
 I think my hobnail wedding basket was my very first piece of Milk Glass. I love it! There's a pretty candy dish sitting in the basket. That's a pretty Westmoreland Wedding Bowl candy dish in the back.
 More pretties and some Grape patterns.
 Love the Grape pattern and it seems the easiest to find. The little Milk Glass juicer was my little mothers.
 The little dish on the bottom left is a pattern called English Hobnail, lots of compotes in the back, two Lace patterned bowls sitting in my Westmoreland fruit bowl.
\

More medium sized compotes and then two larger Teardrop patterned compotes. Okie dokie that seems to be all of the Milk Glass I have to show you that's in my china cabinet. Oh, did I tell you, I have more that wouldn't fit? I'll save that for another day! :) Love my Milk Glass.
Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia :)

I'll leave you with a little Note Songs~ 

Milk Cow Blues

Well I woke up this mornin'
Looked outdoors
I can tell my milk cow
I can tell by the way she lows
If you see my milk cow
Please drive her on home
Cause I ain't had no milk and butter
Since that cows been gone

Well you gotta treat me right honey
Day by day
Get out your little prayer book
Get down upon your knees and pray
Cause you're gonna need me
You're gonna need my help someday
Lord you're gonna be sorry
You, you treated me this a way
Aw, now take it away boys
Sail on, sail on, sail on little gal, sail on
Sail on, sail on, sail on little gal, sail on
You're gonna keep right on sailing
Till you lose your happy home
Well good evening
Don't that sun look good going down
I said well good evening
Don't that sun look good going down
Don't that ol' army cot look lonely
When your lover ain't no place around
Well I tried everything baby
To get along with you
Now I'm gonna tell you
What I'm gonna do
I'm gonna stop my cryin'
Gonna leave you alone
And if you don't think I'm leavin' big momma
Just count the days I'm gone
You ain't gonna see me
You ain't gonna see my sweet face no more
Lord you gonna be wondering honey
Where in this world I've gone
Milk cow blues

  3. Good Morning! My dear mother loved milk glass and she would have loved your collection, as do I! She had the "square" pattern and when I was little, I would press my silly putty into the milk glass to get the design~ lol I also remember her having the grape pattern. In later years, the two of would scout thrift stores for milk glass vases. You did a fantastic job arranging your collection in the china cabinet. Have a great Mon.

  8. Very pretty collection and I learned some names of patterns I didn't know. I love milk glass but don't collect it because I have no where to display it. I think it has to be out for all to enjoy!

  16. Wow you really do have a nice collection! Every time I see your milk glass I cringe a little because I had a bunch of pieces that were my mom's and eventually sold them off at a garage sale. It wasn't a big collection but they were all bubble glass. I had a hutch on top of a dresser that I filled with them for a while. Oh well...live and learn!

  19. Oh my goodness Shelia, your milk glass collection is stunning! I love grouping collections together like this, makes such a statement. It would be hard for me to choose a favorite but I do really love the sugar bowls and little pitchers and the compotes! Love, sigh, gorgeous!

  21. You have an enviable collection of milk glass! I thought of you last weekend, because when I was at an estate sale there was a closet full! There was big set of cups and saucers with (I think) a grape pattern and a pitcher. I considered it, but I really have nowhere to display it like you have done here. You may remember my late cousin (with the red and white kitchen) who had a large collection. Her dear son sold it at the estate sale, and most of it was gone when I got there. Oh well. Cant wait to see the rest!

  22. I adore your collection, it is beautiful and I am so glad that you are to display it so lovely.
    I have such a mix of collections that it is difficult to display them as I would like to.
    So, I will enjoy yours!
    Happy Tuesday!

  26. I've learned that when I visit someone's home, it's usually okay to really spend time looking and admiring their collections, because we put them there for a reason, right? We love these things because they have a story and make us think of happy things. I spend a long time arranging my curio cabinets and love it when people ask questions and admire it! If I were in your house, I'd stand and look at this collection for a very, very long time. I love seeing every piece and reading your descriptions!

  28. Shelia,
    I adore you collection of Milk Glass, dear friend!
    I have two pieces. . .both are the same.
    My MoMa gave me a milk glass plate where you can add ribbon around the edge.
    When her Cousin passed away, my Sister bought some Milk Glass at the Estate $ale,
    then she gifted me with a milk glass plate exactly like the one I have.
    Now, we wonder if MoMa and Cousin June were together when they purchased a plate each?
    Guess we'll never now the story, but those two were more like Sisters!
    makes both of my only two pieces of Milk Glass precious to me!
    Fondly,
    Pat

  32. I too have a huge milk glass collection. It is so great to be able to grab a piece to use for flowers, fruit... candles... or any reason at all! I've seen where a person placed a lot of pieces as a centerpiece on a table and put candles in each one... it was stunning. One of these days I'll do that lol

  33. My mother used to have milk glass. She died when I was too young to appreciate it. I'm loving seeing yours -- brings back memories!

I'm so pleased you would come to see me and so please leave me a comment and I'll do my very best to respond back to you. Be a sweetie...Shelia :)
