Footed Milk Glass in the Bathroom

I never pass by these at the thrift store because: look!


They do all my bathroom countertop storage. Makeup, cotton swabs, toothbrush and toothpaste.


I love this shallow footed dish. With a layer of small river rocks, it makes a fine soap dish.

Hope I haven't bought up all the milk glass in town; it's been a little thin at the thrift store lately. Hope they have giant stashes of it put away until after Christmas. That's it, a January white sale!

I love milk glass, too! Unfortunately now I have more than I know what to do with, and with a terribly accident-prone almost 2 year old boy, it's all tucked away for safe keeping for now....

What a lovely picture. So elegant and perfectly useful, yet found in a thrift store. I bought a square milk glass container at a thrift store for pennies the other day. It has a shell motif, and now it holds my husband's toothbrush and paste.

Excellent! I use the vases (thanks to your nudging--you're right, they're great in groupings) but need to Think Outside the Vase. These footed beauties really are great.

What a beautiful idea! I've so enjoyed going through your blog. It's such a reminder that in the chaos of homeschooling 3 boys and teaching music, my life can still be beautiful.

What a great idea! I've never been the biggest milk glass fan, however your ideas have me thinking otherwise. I even bought a small milk glass lamp, but have yet to decide where it wil go...

Rae said...

So wonderful! I'm going to keep my eyes open for some of these beauties!

So pretty! I've seen this idea before but my bathroom has no space for these.
I may just try the soap dish idea though:)!

Great idea for the soapdish! When we go to the beach, I pick up pebbles because they're so beautiful. Now I can make a soapdish in any container I have. Brilliant.

How cool...I have lots of milk glass that I use this way too. All of mine are pieces that I got from my grandmother.
I use them for my makeup, for potpouri, on my jewelry box for odds and ends of jewelry. I just love the stuff!!!

Oh I have found someone else that loves milk glass, I have a large collection of milk glass myself and like you I cannot pass a thrift store without stopping and picking a piece or two or three!!!! My family thinks I have an addiction to it but I beg to differ, it just draws itself to me and won't stay on the shelf I say, and what to do after all I do have to leave the store at some point!!! Blessings, Diana
