GRANDMA FRANKIE'S MILK GLASS

 While visiting my friend Bonnie at White Lace and Promises, I mentioned I had the same milk glass pieces she shared.  She ask if I would share the milk glass I'm displaying in my swivel hutch which was my mother in laws.  It been packed away in bubble wrap since I didn't have room to display before as both hutches were filled with my "Tea Things".

I needed some color for the display so added photo's and my little books and paintings.  This is a new look for the hutch, which is perfect for a new home and new touches.
 
Do you like milk glass?  What is your favorite in my collection?

  2. Beautiful! It has really made a come back in popularity, too!
    I think it's a nice change for you in your new place. It's lovely displayed against that dark wood!
    The little panel vase in the center box is exactly like a piece I sold in my shop over the weekend!

    1. I think it's a nice change of pace too. Crisp and white ~ I think it looks good with the dark wood too.
      I can't believe the variety of styles and sizes.

  4. Yes, I like milk glass. Especially in a collection. My favorite of your pieces is the lidded jar on the second shelf from the top. I seldom see any for sale around here.

    1. Those two pieces on that shelf match. I'm just getting to know them myself.

  5. Girl, I'm drooling! You have several pieces that I don't have. Hobnail is my favorite. I don't have the small cream and sugars. The middle in the last row, is that called a rose bowl? I've never seen that piece. I love it! So glad you put those out. White is great with everything!

    1. Thanks Bonnie.. You never know what lurks in the garage hidden in bubble wrap. I am really enjoying the milk glass, and glad I tucked the tea stuff away for a while. Thanks for the info on the little rose bowl.

  6. My mom had a few milk glass pieces, but they were never my favorite. I like her collection of cut glass cruets instead.

    I think perhaps my favorite in your collection is what looks to be a planter. The one in the top right corner. It would be especially pretty with something green growing in it.

    1. I never really thought of them a favorite, as I've always displayed my tea things. But I remember when Don's mother was alive she had the milk glass all over her house. Now I'm really enjoying it and her memory.

  7. My favourite, top row in the middle, for its simplicity of style. A lovely colourful header Wanda.

    1. Some are ornate, and some simple...a matter of taste. I like that one too.

    1. I think that's what shows it off so well, the contrast.

  9. Yes, I like milk glass. I only have one piece of it at the moment. I like the hobnail piece in the upper right corner that you shared.

    1. That's the one Martha liked. She suggested it would look nice with a green plant. I agree..may have to look into that, and set it in the bathroom.

    2. I have eyed a few pieces n Betsy's shop over the years. You have a lovely collection. I like the lidded ones and the tall, slim one that seems to have an oval emblem on the side. Nice to have lots of variety.

    3. Betsy mentioned selling a piece like one of mine. I think it grows on you, as I have never been a real fan of milk glass...now I am. HaHa

  10. I do like Milk Glass. I used to give a piece of Milk Glass to my Mom for birthdays and Mother's Day for many years.
    I don't know what happened to a lot of it, maybe they sold it at their garage sale before they moved.
    My favorites were always the unusual shapes and generally different. Love the tall candy dish you show.
    Kids come back tomorrow and stay for a few days before making their trek back home.
    I'm so happy you two (3 with Molly) are settling in and seem so happy in this next chapter. Will write later with details from visit.
    Love you and miss you

    1. Sue, you are honest and funny. I will not give you a piece of my milk glass for Christmas...HaHa.
      I think it was from the era of our moms and grandmoms. Looking forward to the details of the visit. Love and miss you too.

    1. Jim you are too young to know what milk glass is. Perhaps your grandmother had some. It from a era couple generations back. After Don's mother passed, the milk glass went to Don's older brother, when he passed it was left for Don. I had not unpacked the box it was in, and found it wrapped in bubble wrap, and now was the time to enjoy it.

  12. Very pretty display, Wanda. My mom had a lot of milk glass. When I was a kid, I would press my silly putty onto her milk glass. The patterns were great!!! lol
