Our Thrift Finds

Our Sunday will be a cloudy and rainy one. That's quite okay with us, because we need the rain on our young gardens. My husband and I went thrift shopping again yesterday and I found what I was looking for, milk glass! We were quite fortunate to find these beautiful pieces at a little shop on the eastern outskirts of Texas. Dusty, cobwebs and dirty, we searched from corner to corner of that little shop, because things were haphazardly placed everywhere. The pieces found were crusted dirty and had to be washed immediately.

 It was a successful hunt and these will be added to our growing collection. The last two pictures shows a close-up of the three pieces that are heavier. I was amazed at the weight when I lifted them. I'm sorry I forgot to tell you, there are more, but these are the pieces I liked. There were a total of thirty-two pieces! What a find. I love them all!



  1. What an amazing collection! I like it very much. You're lucky to get it. Congratulations!

  2. These are gorgeous, Loretta, what a great find :o) I like milk glass too but they are expensive here in the uk, even secondhand. A very successful hunt indeed ;o)
    Have a blessed day.

  3. I love milk glass and you have some very interesting and unique pieces there!! I struggle with how to diplay my pieces - wish I had a cupboard with glass doors! Enjoy your new finds!

  4. ohhh you are making me hurt for treasure hunting! I haven't gone since November. Trying to be frugal and all, and I was spending quite a bit on thrifting! Thanks for stopping by!

  5. Wow! What great finds! Love all the milk glass...Christine

  6. Loretta that last pic has that beautiful rose bowl vase ... I so love it. What a coup for you ...

    TY for your sweet wishes for my husband. He is doing much better today.

    Have a beautiful week ~

  7. 32 pieces! Wow, you certainly had a big day. I like the tureen, at least I think that is what it is. You found some interesting shapes and sizes. How fun!

    Thanks for visiting me:)

  8. Wow! I'd be hunting through every corner for those beauties also. I love that globe looking piece, never seen anything like it before. You did good!

  9. What a great collection! You got very blessed to find them! My Grandma had milk glass. I have a lamp and a vase here. It reminds me of her.
    Have a good week.
