i used to collect | Milk Glass

 This is a stale post.  Don't you smell the stank?
For fresh ideas and the newest new new stuff 
why don't you head on over to the blog we actually update.

Love to see you there.
Carry on as you were.


if you hit the internets,

then you know that
in the world of "new vintage collectors"
(ie, all of us wannabe vintage collectors
that don't have a CLUE)
milk glass is all the rage.

I get it.

It's (generally) cute
just like my awesome lamp find

it is really easy to find
it is a relatively inexpensive collection to start
but it quickly gets pretty pricey
and pretty hard
to sustain


maybe that is only "hard"
for those of us not willing
to spend  big
or go on the hunt for
our collections.

I admit it.

I bit the bug
and I went and bought me some milk glass
and because I don't ever just buy 1 of anything
I bought a piece.
or two
or nine

not all at once.

it started with a set of three
from the North Bend Senior Thrift Store Sale
Then I picked up a few more pieces
And a piece here
And a piece there

Honestly though?
I'm not really a fan.

I used to collect Milk glass

and I will keep these pieces because I love them
for non milk glass reasons

I'll also keep the milk glass lamp.

I used to collect milk glass.
Now I don't.

But perhaps you do?
Or you want to?
Or you just love winning stuff?

I'm giving away my milk glass collection in two batches.

One batch will be a follower.
If you scroll over to the right ------------------->
and add yourself to the followers
then leave a comment on this post
telling me that you are a follower
you will be entered into the drawing for that batch.
The second batch is for anyone or their mama
and yes, mama's LOVE these pieces

so call it early Christmas shopping
or even earlier mama's day or Easter shopping
All you have to do is leave a comment on this post

If you are a follower, you can enter both giveaways

just leave separate comments

The giveaway will go on until I hit 50 followers.

(on this post) to earn extra entries
for each set of milk glass.
