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
