Little Milk Glass Gardens


I find these milk glass planters almost every week at the thrift store. Here they are planted with little airplane plant starts.

This is totally unrelated, but I just made my first scones---I LOVE them!! They have raisins in them and are so yummy!

It just made me think of you.

I have a few of these too, and I have used them for all sorts of things...but never a planter! thanks for the idea.

lovely - of course I LOVE milk glass - anything in milk glass is 100% prettier, it just is :o)

Yes, I also thought they looked like spider plants - it's interesting that they have a different name in other places!
And yes, ajh, scones are great!

They look so fresh and pretty. I love milk glass and enjoy seeing plants, but for some reason have a plant phobia about my own home, and imagine the plants growing huge at night and entangling everything they can reach! :)

You must have wonderful thrift stores in your area! I hardly ever find anything so wonderful here.

My friend loves milk glass. Those plants make everything pop. Beautiful photo. :)

I think Anna sees potential and possibilities in items many of us do not..........at least, which I don't. But I'm learning!

Beautiful, I love milk glass. Of course, I feel you can never have enough milk glass!

So pretty! What a great idea...

I can't even tell you how I found your blog, but I did! So nice to meet a fellow homeschool mom with older children. I graduated my first in '07, and I have an 11th grader and a 7th grader to go.

I inherited all of my grandmother's milk glass. What a beautiful idea!

Gorgeous, gorgeous stuff! I'm visiting from the link at Rocks in My Dryer--what a find! Beautiful photography, great ideas! And how incredible, the matching button to your vintage robe--how great!
Blessings!

Lovely! Like Mrs., I've been left with a nice collection of milk glass (mostly vases), belonging to my (still living) grandmother and my great-grandmother. I don't have it with me now, but I'll enjoy displaying it in a future home.
