This morning we ventured out to a few neighborhood Garage Sales. I desperately wanted to stay home in my jammies today since I was out late doing a paint demo last night but I decided against it. I am trying to soak up the last two weeks of freedom me and my 4-year old have to go run and do whatever we want without having to keep in mind an infant’s nursing and nap schedule.
The Garage Sale fairy was looking down on me today because I scored a a ton of Milk Glass all for about $1.00 each. I love it when that happens. Like remember that time I that time I snatched up a pair of Lululemons for $3.95?
I can always tell when I find something I have to have because my palms and armpits start sweating at a steady rate. I try to play it cool when haggling a deal but I am sure the sweat on my upper lip is a dead giveaway as to how desperate I am to take something home with me.
I also found this Jeanette shell pink milk glass cake stand for $2.00. It was covered in orange that looked like rust – but I decided it was not rusty since it’s made of glass and not metal. I came straight home and washed it with a toothbrush. Just imagine my heart rate when I discovered the exact same cake stand for sale online for $96.00. For realz.
There is no question I am keeping it for my own collection but it’s a good feeling when you have a find like this!
My milk glass stash is getting rather extensive and I am having to find creative ways to use it. I have a few pieces on my dining room table.
I also have some displayed in clusters above my kitchen cabinets.
If I was being really honest with myself I have no business owning NINE new milk glass flower vases.
So I am finding creative ways to use them around my house.
I think this jewelry storage is a good start – don’t you?
