hobnail milkglass

We didn’t buy much at the Madison-Boucksville show (see monday’s post for a full recap), but we did pick up a couple of really pretty milkglass hobnail vessels. We knew they’d look great filled with flowers, or even little candies during the holidays. Below, me and my son, Jack, holding up our purchases. What a trooper Jack was for tagging along on this very “boring” day!

hobnailWe picked up some pretty pink flowers and some greens at our local market. Can any of our horticultural experts out there help us out with the name of these? flowers2Lauren and I both agreed these arrangements would be beautiful for a wedding. The stark white of the milkglass against the pale pink petals is just so lovely.

    They look like dahlias from the photo, but it’s hard to tell. they could be mums.

    I love this post! My grandmother gave me her enormous collection of milk glass and I adore it. Simple and classic, I find that it goes with nearly any other pattern.
