Milk Glass Collection: Vintage milk glass collected from thrift stores, garage sales, and antique shops used for a spring tea party.
I’m so excited to be joining my vintage loving pals to share my Milk Glass Collection today. Special thanks to Laurie from Vinyet etc. for organizing the Creative Vintage Darlings hop.
Where To Find Milk Glass
I’ve been collecting milk glass for years. If you’ve been around here for awhile you’ll know that I’m very frugal. I usually only buy it at thrift stores and garage sales, but occasionally I splurge for a piece at an antique store.
Why Not Use It?
I have the table set up for a little spring tea party. It was all inspired by the idea of planting some pretty white spring blooms in some of my milk glass containers.
I picked up some white tulips, english daisies, and little pansies at my favourite local nursery. The succulent is actually a faux one.
Don’t worry about using your vintage milk glass collection. It’s quite sturdy stuff. And it’s very easy to clean, since it’s like glass. If you plants stain your milk glass collection at all, just clean it with some house hold cleaner.
What’s Your Favourite Pattern?
There are so many pretty patterns of milk glass, but a favourite of mine is the hobnail.
Most of my pieces have been under $5 finds and I love hunting for them. Although I feel like I have so much now, that I usually don’t buy it unless I really love it.
I find that milk glass is great for entertaining too.
Mix In Reproduction Pieces
My footed cake stand is actually a reproduction, although there are vintage ones out there too.
