Milk Glass

Today we pay tribute to a piece of glassware that every true Southern gal should own—Milk Glass.

Fun fact: Did you know that the history of these timeless beauties dates back to Venice in the 16th century?! I love southern things that reveal deep ties to old European culture.

Love the clean look of the milk glass
on white shelves
against a white wall

Is it green? Is it blue?
Not sure, but I do know
I'm in love.

LOVE the colored milk glass.
The closest thing to
Heaven on Earth
might be a shop full of milk glass cake stands
like Bountiful in Venice, CA.

Come on, now.
Has there ever been a more perfect combination
than delicate blue hydrangeas
resting in creamy milk glass?

Perfect for displaying vibrant
wedding flowers
or gifting to your favorite Southern gal
to say, "Hey...I like you."

Loving this blue shelf.
It's the perfect home
for beautiful milk glass,
a few pink garden roses
and a great vintage doily.

Oh milk glass, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
