Well, since no one really cares what to do with your cheese, I’ll just move on to the yardage goods for this week. I’ve been overcome by a summer cold, and feel like dookey, so I skipped yesterday, and only want to a handful today. But! It was evidently milk-glass day in Washington, because here is what I found:
Large hobnail milk glass pitcher, $2.00. I found it on Etsy when I got home for $42.00
Also, this hurricane hobnail milk-glass lamp. It was also $2.00 and it is actually already packed, and sitting on my desk to be Happy-Mail for one of my favorite people- someone who really looooves milk glass. Any guesses? She’ll know this week, when it arrives…
Also, two irridescent hobnail candle holders, a pommes-anna french baking pan from Williams Sonoma with the sticker still on, and a set of mini-tart pans. For 75 cents. For it all. Yup.
Also: In just looking up Fenton milk glass, there is a cake stand on eBay for $280.00 HOLY CRAP! It’s the same one sitting on my kitchen counter. Fluted edges, opalescent glow, white hobnail- I got it for free. I’m not selling, and as a matter of fact, it’s the glory of that cake stand that made me really start loving milk glass in the first place. 280!! I have a whole cupboard of Fenton- two pieces even signed and numbered… maybe I’ve got next months mortgage payed for and I don’t even know it, huh?
Anyway. Someone’s getting a package from me. I’m thinking I maybe should re-pack it- use a little more bubble wrap than I did- this stuff is more valuable that I knew!
