The shape and colour of most milk glass pieces make me smile. I like their curves, flares, dips and dots. The folks creating the designs most have had fun. I have roughly twenty pieces in my collection from small vases to large bowls. The hard part is deciding where to show case these pieces. Currently they are on display in my bedroom. The pop nicely off the gray-blue walls. I have them gathered together on the mantle of a faux fireplace.
Here are some other ideas of how to display them. I really like the less is more idea with using the wooden tray as a base.
I also like gathering them together in some simple shelves.
