Mother's Day and Milk Glass

I finally got all of the milk glass cleaned and moved into the family dining room.....glad that job is done!   Before I give you a tour of the finished room,   I wanted to show you a gift that would be perfect for that special mom...........

Any mom would love a gift made by YOU.   Start with a stiff thin board,   glue pieces of torn wallpaper to it,  add a small piece of rusty metal with a photo of you in the middle,   string of pearls,   MOM  refrigerator magnets,  a silver cross........

You get the idea.....put anything on your board that would make your mom smile.....


Now for a tour of the finished family dining room.  

I had two hob nail lamps in storage and I put them on the divider.

The dining table is set with milk glass and in the back ground you can see the lit display cabinet ....you have already had a tour of the display cabinet......here's the link to that post if you missed it.....http://penny-pennystreasures.blogspot.com/2016/04/styling-vintage-milk-glass.html

You will notice two different floral centerpieces in my photo's ....couldn't decide which one I liked the best.   Which is your favorite....the one on the table now or the one on the left side of the lit cabinet (it's on the table in the next photo)  ????

I put small pieces of milk glass in the shelved mirror hanging on the wall......

The place settings are milk glass......

In the corner you can see my mother's snack sets on a pink  three tired table.

My mother entertained quite a bit .....baby showers,  wedding showers,  parties.....etc.
  When there was a big wedding reception at the church she would take her milk glass and so would all of her friends that had lots of it too.....they could serve several hundred guests. 

I put the extra cups on my French drying rack and put it at the top of the Library ladder.....

The handles are so small that I had to tie them on the rack instead of hanging them on the arms.....

I filled my hob nail vase with faux iris.......

BUT,   I did have one white iris in bloom out the yard!

Be back soon with more progress on the new table linen storage in the hallway!

  7. Penny,
    Your milk glass collection is so precious and beautiful and it is extra endearing to me because you have also combined your Mother's collection. This is so lovely for Mother's Day, any Mom would have a joyful heart to be present at your special and beautiful table.
    We so enjoy having you with us today at TOHOT.

  8. Penny,
    You know that I have always loved your Mother's collection of milk glass!! So pretty! My neighbor, Elly, collected milk glass and funny that you would post this because I found a taller hob nail milk glass lamp over there ( her sons said that since we care for the house, to take whatever I want) and I had the perfect shade for it so it now found a home in my Living Room!!
    I also have a milk glass punch bowl set too!! Maybe, I should get it out....

    Hugs,
    Deb

  12. Right up my alley but I am not as creative in decorating with home styles as you. All my antiques are the original stains and I cannot bring myself to redo any of them. I might take some ideas from you if that is ok with you. You are one busy and creative lay. Beautiful post.

  13. Thanks so much for sharing at the Pretty Project Party...I love that your Mom and her friends brought their collections to the Church for special events. What a nice thought, nowadays it would be paper plates and plastic cups. Easier, but not the same! So pretty, great idea to tie the cups when they didn't fit! Love that french drying rack...Amy
