Other than books, art, shoes and bags I wouldn’t call myself much of a collector. Not even as a child. There were no rocks or pogs or baseball cards stashed on my shelves. I didn’t even have one of those towers of CD’s (remember those?). There were of course…Barbies.
As one who rarely collects, starting a collection can be rather exhilarating and like a kid excited for show-and-tell I’m stoked to share that I recently started collecting white milk glass. Mmm hmmmm, that’s right. Thanks to last weekends Rose Bowl flea market and the power of ebay you’re looking at a proud collector of spikey white porcelain (such as this vase!).
Here’s my vision: accumulate vases, bowls and cake stands in different heights, shapes and sizes then do all of the following:
1. place them along my kitchen counter to hold fresh produce and flowers
2. line them down the center of a table full or oranges or flowers or crudités or snacks or anything for dinner parties
3. set up a dreamy dessert table (how pretty would beautiful pasties look in contrast to the stark white?)
4. enjoy looking at them in the way that collectors like to doPhotos: Pinterest
