Saturday’s Surprise: A peek in to my Etsy favorites

Today’s Saturday Surprise is a peek at the items I love on Etsy. Etsy allows you to publicly share your favorites or to keep them private. I keep mine private, because I use Etsy so much for gift giving and for wedding items that I like to keep a surprise. However, this week I thought I’d let you peek in to my favorites closet to give you a better sense of what my aesthetic is. What do we have in common? Was their anything that surprised you?

Dream Finds Friday: For the love of milk glass

This week’s Dream Finds Friday features one of my favorite things. Yes, as in those Julie Andrews sort of favorite things: milk glass. I have collected milk glass for about *mumble* years. I love it so much that we are using my current collection and adding to it each month to use for mine and Mr. Wondermous’ wedding. It pains me to do it, but I will suffer through. 😉

One of my sources for unique and higher end (aka non-thrift store 50% on Saturday) milk glass pieces, is Etsy. When purchasing online, make sure that if a vendor says a piece is Fenton or Westmorland that they have a pic or send you a pic to make sure the mark is there and you are getting what you are paying for. There is a lot of milk glass out there that is/was made by a variety of sources that aren’t made by the high end glass makers. When purchasing, stick to what you love and don’t worry so much about whether it is made by a high end glass maker.

As I mentioned last week, all of my Dream Finds Friday posts will be items from Etsy. Oh, and when you are finished here, please follow this link to find out what other dream finds are out there awaiting you this week.

Here are some of my milk glass “Dream Finds” currently on Etsy:
