Yesterday I showed the centerpiece I used in my Tablescape. It was an ice bucket that I put flowers in.
I love this piece! I collect milk glass and this is my favorite piece I own. I have never seen one like it and I have no idea what it is worth, if anything.
I found it at a Thrift Store awhile ago and was thrilled when I did. I had it in my garage for a long time and actually forgot about it. Until I went in there to clean up a bit and came across it.
It used to be easy to find milk glass at Thrift Stores but not so much any more and when I do find any it's normally a vase. Plus they raised the prices up a lot!
I had seen these on Pier One Imports web site and really wanted to get a set. I went to three different Pier Ones and couldn't find them. They had them in black and a yellow gold but not the red.
So when I saw them I got really excited!
I don't think they have ever been use. They still have the original price tag on them from Pier One.
They weren't very expensive to begin with but my excitement came from not being able to find them and now here they were. Plus at more then 1/2 price!
I love birds. I love red. These plates are perfect for me. I can't wait to use them in a Tablescape. I think in the summer when we are having dinner outside would be great.
