Milk Glass

Sep 17, 2013

I have a serious love for milk glass. When I spot pieces of it when I’m out looking for trinkets to use in projects I think of every way possible I can use it in my studio. So today, I thought I would share with you some of the ways I use the pieces I’ve found.

Sherbet Dish

This little sherbet dish holds some of my favorite glass buttons. I placed the little bird on top of the buttons just because it looked cute.

Ashtray

This is a small ashtray. I place beads in it when I’m accenting embroidery pieces or sewing them into flower centers. This is a great way to keep lose beads in one spot when stitching.

Candy Dish

Sugar and Creamer

These items… candy dish, cups and saucers, bowl and sugar and creamer are perfect to use as storage/photo props. The candy dish is filled with crystal chandelier pieces and the large bowl holds vintage mercury glass Christmas ornaments. I use all of these as photo props for all kinds of projects.

Salt Shaker

This salt shaker is filled with silver German glass glitter. It’s the perfect size and makes glittering even more fun than it already is. Salt shakers either milk glass or clear are gorgeous ways to store glitter.

If you have a true love for milk glass check out my Pinterest board “Delight In Milk Glass“. It has lots of beautiful photos showing them used as home decor accents, planters, vases etc.

Tomorrow, I’m starting a new feature on my blog called “My Life In A Dinghy.” I can’t wait to share with you the amazing artists who created works of art for this feature. I’m about to bust with excitement.
