mom’s house and me: milk glass

We both like antiques, but she’s turn of the century, and I’m midcentury. She likes country accents, and I keep things modern. While my taste has changed a lot over the years, it’s always been really different from my mom’s. During my Easter visit to my family home in Louisiana, though, a few of her prized possessions appealed to me in a new way. I suddenly felt drawn to her milk glass collection, sherbet-colored Tupperware, and cornflower blue dishes. So, in honor of Mother’s Day, here’s the first post of a series that showcases some of Mom’s favorite stuff  . . . and my own spin.

Here’s how Mom does milk glass — casual, shabby chic storage in the kitchen.

And here are some milk glass pieces I’d be happy to host in my Lustron.
