{milk glass & a giveaway}

I've said it before, and I'll say it again. I love milk glass. It's white, it's classic, and it matches everything. Most of my little collection sits on top of my fridge, but a few pieces are scattered around my house. For Mothers Day, I gave my mom a lace rim compote (like the one pictured above). I thought it would be the perfect table top accessory to store little candies in or to hold sauces at dinner, but being the crafty woman she is, she used it to hold her jewelry!

Great idea, right?

That's what I love about milk glass- there's a plethora of uses for them! You could also use this to hold cotton balls in a bathroom or even filled with a low, tight arrangement of carnations!(perfect for a pretty outdoor dinner party, don't you think?)
So, in honor of my love for milk glass, I've decided to share the love!
Just leave a comment and your name will be entered into the contest to win one of these lovely pieces (there will be 4 winners).
Oh, and if you become a follower of my blog, you'll get another entry! Two entries are better than one, right?
The giveaway will end Monday night, and the winner will be announced Tuesday!
Good Luck!

I would love to get some of that beautiful milk glass! My mom had several pieces that she planned to pass down to me at some point but sadly they were all demolished by a very careless moving company. Mom packed them extra carefully but they still didn't survive. I would love to give her a new piece of milk glass to enjoy!

I LOVE my earring holder, although I must say my earrings look pretty stodgy compared to you long dangly, sexy earrings. But I would need to have an actual NECK to be able to wear those!
