Milk Glass Punch Bowl

Hello, Dear Ones! Well, today I have a great set to add to my Milk Glass collection and wanted to show it to you.
 Ta dah! Look! It's a punch bowl with eight cups! I almost fell over when I picked it up and saw it. The sticky tag said $5! What? I was trembling when I went up to the counter of the thrift shop! Got up there and gave my $5 bill and she said, "It's half price today." Teeter, swirl, spin and almost passed out!!
This pattern is called Thumbprint. It's a little hard to see with the sun shining through on it but it has the indentions that look similar to thumbprints! Simple and sweet.
Here's a close up of one of the cups. Yep, my fingertips are all wrinkly as I've just washed this set and couldn't wait to show it to you!
Oh boy! Oh joy! Can you imagine a pretty red punch with a little sprig of mint floating on top? Or a large colorful salad? But for now I think I'll just look at it. I love my milk glass. Guess what? I have more to show you!!

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

You Beat Me To The Punch

 That day, I first saw you passing by
I wanted to know your name but I was much too shy
But I was looking at you so hard
Until you must have had a hunch
So you came up to me and asked me my name
You beat me to the punch that time
You beat me to the punch, ohh ohh
You beat me to the punch
After I hadn't known you for it seems like a long, long time
I wanted, wanted to ask you, would you please, please be mine
Whenever you came around, my heart would pound
So you must have had a hunch
So you came up to me and asked me to be yours
You beat me to the punch one more time
You beat me to the punch
You beat me to the punch, yeah
Since I love you, I thought you would be true
And love me tender
So I let my heart surrender
To you, yes, I did
But I found out beyond a doubt one day, boy, you were a playboy
Who would go away and leave me blue
So I ain't gonna wait around for you to put me down
This time I'm gonna play my hunch
And walk away this very day
And beat you to the punch this time
And beat you to the punch this time
I'll beat you to the punch, yes, I will
And let you know, know, how it feels
