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.

Liberty of London Love

I have been in an out of Target half a dozen times since they launched this line but didn't really take the time to look at the dinnerware until last night and oh boy was I surprised! very pleasantly!  I don't love melamine dishes but these were some really beatiful pieces and they would be great for summertime dinners when we actually do eat outside. 

I looove this floral ceramic canister, but then I love anything with a floral pattern!

These teapots are beautiful, even though I don't drink hot tea I though about purchasing them...crazy I know but seriously aren't they beautiful?
I couldn't stop looking at these online and seriously they look even better in person

This one I just love, probably because of all the different shades of purple and pink in the pattern.  I did purchase this one for my morning coffee because it makes me smile, and now I must go back and get the other 3 I saw on the shelf since they seem to be selling out everywhere in this pattern.  It is currently out of stock on Target's website.
I want to do another post about the Liberty of London for Target line after seeing the beautiful bedding they have in the line.  I seriously don't know where to start with that 1 but stay tuned for more... thanks so much for reading!
