Decorating With Milk Glass

Good morning all! 
Hope you enjoyed the small series on inspiring movie houses.
If you missed it, you can find the first one here

Today I want to show you how I display my milk glass.
I can’t remember when I saw the article in Martha Stewart Living, but it was about how beautiful milk glass containers are when lit from within by candles.
I immediately pulled out all my milk glass….a pitifully small collection….and tried it. 
I fell in love and have done it many times since then.

In case you missed the article, I thought I’d show you my display.

Remember, these pics had to be taken in the dark with my little point and shoot camera
so don’t expect too much!

Ever since I first tried this, I have kept an eye out for milk glass at the thrift stores

My little collection of white birds fit the scene perfectly

I’m adding in some Valentines decorations as I go….they fit so well with all the white

I love the soft glow…
makes the cheap decorations from the Dollar Store look really good!

The one really nice thing on the shelf is this sweet little paper cutting made by my
daughter. Isn’t it darling?

Do you have any milk glass?
Time to pull it out of the closet!

  1. All those years ago when I started my first collection of cast off stuff no one was yet saving….. I sure wish I would of picked something pretty like milk glass or any glass for that matter. I picked rolling pins. They now sit in a drawer.


  2. I forgot I had made that for you! It looks nice on the shelf. I love all the milk glass! I have some pieces now from Mama, I need to light mine up! The display looks great!

  3. There was a time when I had several milk glass vases, but I had to finally pare down my collection for lack of space. I like milk glass because it is so versatile and since it is simple and white, it can fit many different design styles.

    You have a beautiful collection so far! Enjoy your thrifting!


  4. Beautiful! I have a few pieces as well…Now I know what to do with them…Thank you so much!

  5. You’re welcome! Thanks for stopping by!
