everytime i'm at a thrift, i cannot deny my love for milk glass. how can you pass up the creamy texture and luminescent glow? most of the milk glass you'll find at thrifts will be everyday flower recepticles. not to worry - these vases come in all shapes and sizes which are great for holding long utensils, like stirring spoons and knitting needles. you will also find other shapes, such as short flat pieces, which are great for holding guest soaps, kitchen sponges, or your bobbypins. if you are really lucky, you'll find the most beautiful and rare representation of milk glass - opaque blue, green, or pink creamy glass. my favorites are animal-shaped candy dishes, printed pieces, and anything with raised detail on the bottom. i have so many pieces in my collection, but i cannot seem to stop the growth of my stash - it's just too beautiful!
