Vintage Heirlooms

Hey my friends!
And a special WELCOME to all my new followers 🙂
I can’t wait to show you all these new goodies.
Very special family heirlooms, from my sweet Aunt.
 White milk glass, owned once by my Great-Grandmother.
Don’t you just love the little dots?
Such sweet character.
 The set came with six little glasses and a large and small pitcher.
 When I opened the box from my Aunt,
I was in milk glass Heaven 🙂
She also sent me some very old, vintage cookbooks;
 passed down from her friends’ Grandmother.
The colors are great for the upcoming Holidays.
I added a bit of twine and rosemary…
smells so good.
The little milk glass bowl was in the box, too.
Love the scalloped edges.

My Aunt knows I like special vintage goodies,
but these are vintage heirlooms with a story.
My favorite.  Thanks, “Aunt Sue”!
I’ll treasure it all forever…

Or until it’s my turn to pass it on.
Thanks for hosting ladies!

    Don't you just love family heirlooms? They remind you of past memories every time you look at them.

    I also wanted to comment on your WW post with the bucket light. Are these hard to make? I really like how it looks and who doesn't have a ton of buckets sitting around?

    Take care,

    I have to tell you.. I think the name of your blog is really cute! I love your photo with the books tied in jute! I am starting to become more and more attracted to milkglass; so many striking things you can do with its simplicity. I had (1) piece but it broke, but will be looking for new (to me) stuff soon. Your photos are really nice!!!!
    Lara 🙂

    Hello Sweet Beckie, We love your new kitchen, you did a wonderful job, But I am not surprised as I know you are so good in your decorating. You must get that from your Mother. You know your Mother had some white milk glass. I gave her, it was from My mother. She had it in her buffet last I saw it. You should look it up, and I know your dad would let U have it. and of course I would love for you to have it too. I also have an old cook book, (200 years Of New Orleans Cooking.) It was printed in 1931. Would you be interested in it? It is weathered,with age, still in fairly good cond. It is red with white polka dots. Not exactly your colors, but it might could be fit in. Let me know if you would like it. If not, I will send it to Ginger. I had got it at a garage sell for her, but she said I could give it to you if you wanted it. It has a fabric cover, and might could be painted with some fabric paint. (Of course that could take away the value of a 89 year old book.)Good luck in your decorating. Thank you for sharing with us. Love ya, Aunt Kay and Donna.

  21. Beautiful milkglass, I love how you have it all together in the wonderful tray. Precious keepsakes! Thanks for linking in with VIF!

  22. Lovely heirlooms! I adore milkglass…especially the little hobnail pieces 🙂
