collector's edition

so i've started a new collection. i've recently become enamored with milk glass pedestal bowls, which was initiated by a trip to the depot in concord. i ended up buying my first piece at a goodwill in raleigh and have been on somewhat of a buying spree ever since. milk glass is actually pretty popular, and seems to be quite expensive at antique stores and flea markets, but it also shows up at the goodwill quite frequently, so everything i have bought thus far has been at or under the $3 mark. my kind of pricing.

shortly after beginning mine, i came across jenny glancy's lovely collection, featured in the july/august issue of country living. my pieces are currently holding the rather large collection of bracelets and bangles i have also acquired recently, but i have visions of a mantel in my future home covered in milk glass pieces, or a large shelf or china cabinet highlighting the collection. in fact, i may actually move them to the living room for the fall and put mini rub-n-buff pumpkins inside them.

 i'm also loving this other collection, featured on the blog sullivan-owen.

aren't they beautiful? i just love how neutral they are, but how a large grouping of them can still make such a statement. i actually picked up two more pieces this past weekend at the hillsville flea market (post coming soon!) and i'm so excited to continue building my collection!
