Hooked on Green Milk Glass.....


I am hooked on green milk glass.......and so are a lot of collectors now a days if they can afford it. I see many others out in blogland who love, love, love it! So what has us all hooked, is it the color, the look, the nostalgia, or the love of the 40's and 50's. Perhaps it is the fact that it happens to be Martha's favorite choice of dish and color.


Of course, I don't have the collection that she does, but what I do have I love! Some are antique and some are reproductions, either way they are gorgeous to look at!





Such as this more artistic "Dogwood" set from Smith Glass...



Or a decorative dip bowl from Smith Glass...







And of course, one of 3 green milk glass cakestands.



I thought I would throw in a picture of a repro fridge I found that would match these dishes perfect, if you choose to have your whole kitchen coordinate with them. If you would like to see what others are hooked on this Friday, head over to Julia's Blog Carnival at Hooked on Houses.

Such a soothing color. And I love that fridge too! I could see that in a lovely restored bungalow somewhere.

I'm a huge fan, as well. There's something so beautiful and delicate about the smooth color. It's cheery without trying too hard.

And I think I drooled myself a puddle over that refrigerator. I'm smitten!

Well, that's fun! You've got me hooked, too, now. You don't see much green milk glass any more, although I remember my grandmother having some. Thanks for sharing! :-)

I love jadite.
It's such a great color. I actually bought a
kitchen aid mixer that is the same color.
It looks fantastic on my counter.

Thank you for leaving such a lovely comment on my blog! It's wonderful to make another bloggy friend.
