This past summer I decided to just start buying
milk glass at garage sales (for cheap) & start a collection.
I had no rhyme or reason.
When I spread it out at home I found
that there are TWO different colors!

I just can't mix them. It makes the softer one looks
I thought one color variety would be older as a general rule,
but that's really not the case. It has gotten tricky, with all the
reproductions. So my rule of thumb is: buy what you like
and make a collection of things that look cute together!
I built a tower of various
pieces for a fun "fountain" look.
Here is a project using some commonly found plates:
