I encountered a real milk glass magic moment at the oppie the other day. When I walked in the crockery shelves seemed unusually empty, so after a brief glance I wandered around, checking the manchester, the box of fabric scraps and the childrens toys. Then lo and behold as I went back past the shelves, there was new stock, just placed that very moment, including these two glorious pieces of milk glass. Poof, like magic they just appeared, and poof, equally quickly there were snaffled up, paid for and stashed into my bag while I danced a little jig.
The vase on the right is a "Fenton" which is a much more opaque white than the more translucent dish on the left. I presume the Fenton is a much higher quality milkglass ( the same as this cake plate gifted from my MIL) than the more translucent dish. Does anyone know about this? I actually love the translucency of what I suspect is the inferior product, and love that light makes them glow on my windowsill..
Those vintage sheets are being ironed and sorted by colour with some spring blossom to distract me from my kitchen issues. Miss Liongirl and I had a pink princess party to attend. The degree of excitement for this event makes me concerned as to how she will get through her own birthday party without hyperventilating and passing out. (When the birthday girl was overwraught with emotion at NOT getting the pink necklace instead of the purple one, my girl was kind enough to swap her own pink necklace for the inferior purple one. She may have also been concerned that if the moment was not salvaged quickly we could have all been sent home without sampling the cake).
See the happy birthday girl, sporting her pink necklace, while miss Liongirl is happy sporting her favourite pink party frock, pink drink and pink straw. Plus who needs jewellery when you can park your pink caboose next to this table and just graze for a few hours.
Our mulberry tree appears to be ripe a month earlier than last year. How my little tree and little children have grown in 11 months. Peek here if you need proof of growth.
Would you believe, the milk glass has been topped by some pyrex? Back soon with more spring colour.
