New Etsy Treasures!

I looove me some etsy and recently discovered that I had a serious love for milk glass and decided to start a collection.  I purchased this pedestal bowl from etsy seller Second Treasures last week and received it in the mail today and it's just what our refinished dining table needed! 
Here is a closer photo, please ignore my ugly grapes that are starting to turn brown..

I hope to start scouring the local thrift stores and antique malls to find more to fill up the china cabinet that I don't actually own yet!  I also purchased these beautiful crochet doilies from the same etsy seller

I plan on framing them and doing a wall collage something like this

I will post photo's of that once I get it all together.  Thanks and if anyone out there that happens to read this particular post knows of some great places to get milk glass or has some great photo's on your own blog please let me know! I'd love to check it out, it's my newest obession:)  Thanks for reading.

  3. I just recently framed some doilies that were my great-grandmothers. I love how they look. I used clear glass frames with no mats, but I'm now considering adding a colorful mat similar to the one in your inspiration pic. I like how it pops!
