Mosaic Monday: For the Love of Milk Glass

I have always wanted to participate in the Mosaic Monday blog party at The Little Red House; however, I must admit that I do not always take the time to learn various techniques.  So here is my first attempt!  I promise I will get better! Thanks to Foto Flexer and Pic Monkey for the help!
Here is another one I did.  Can't decide which one I like better, but I had fun playing!

  3. You can have a lot of fun making collages with picmonkey. There are so many mix and match options. There is even a help function to explain 'how to' stuff. Enjoy.

    Good first collage of your milk glass collection.

    1. Making my first collage was a lot of fun! Give it a try. From your comment it sounds as if you have not tried one. Check out PicMonkey. It is a free website and has some nifty options. Please come back and visit again!

  9. Welcome to the party! It's a fun one with lots of kind folks who enjoy visiting. Milk glass...ohhhhh...my mother had a small collection and gave it all to a dear friend of hers. I may or may not have forgiven her. ☺

    For a first timer, you sure did a fine job with the mosaics. I shudder looking at my first-time mosaic. Thank you for following and now I'm following you!

    1. Good Morning Vee! The one thing good about milk glass is that it is fairly inexpensive (why I began collecting in the first place) so you will just need to start your own little collection! Thank you for the nice compliment regarding my first mosaics and also for following me at Still Woods.
      Have a great week!

    1. Good Morning Celia! Thank for visiting, following, and especially your lovely comments. What a fun party!

I am looking forward to be being a regular participant. Have a wonderful week!

    1. Hi Glenda. I adore milk glass and have way too many pieces. It was nice to be able to show off a little of it on Mosaic Monday. Had I not discovered PicMonkey, I don't think I would have ever participated in this party. It really was quite fun! I can't wait to get in there and play with the program a little more. Thank you for stopping by and leaving your encouraging comment. Come back soon!

  14. What a lovely collection of milk glass. I must admit I haven't seen a lot of it. I have a few pieces of "depression" glass. thank you so much for visiting my blog today and for your lovely comments. I am glad you enjoyed the tour.

    1. Hi Jill! So there is not much milk glass Downunder? We have an abundance of it in the States. I first began collecting it because it was inexpensive and I just love the look of milk glass. It is extremely versatile. I use it to serve food, as a base for flower arrangements, as pen and pencil containers, to store items in my pantry, etc. My pieces have been borrowed for vintage weddings and most recently for a "afternoon tea" retirement reception. I am getting a late start this morning, but have my first cup of coffee and am about to head over to your place to check out more of your beautiful photography! Thanks for visiting and come back soon. I would be honored to have you follow my little blog.

  19. I LOVE your collection of milk glass. I started collecting it last Christmas. It's fun to look for it at thrift shops and yard sales. The mosaics are both lovely, but I like the contrast of the first one with the black border more. :0)

    1. That is one thing I like about milk glass. It is affordable and beautiful. I use mine all the time. I think I like the black border mosaic better as well!

  24. I like milk glass also. I have a lamp similar to yours but mine has 2 globes that work separately. The bottom one is much dimmer and can be used as a night light. I like the first picture by the way.

    1. Hi Kara,
      Don't you just love the milk glass lamps? Stop by my January blog posts and you will see my entire collection. There is a set of milk glass lamps that a co-worker gave me as a Secret Santa gift. She was a great Secret Santa! I bet your light is lovely with the bottom light used as a night light. Please come visit me again.
