After several years, I took a position at the school's district office and sadly left my Shoe Fairy behind. I never thought that I was leaving a Shoe Fairy for a Milk Glass Fairy! Bet you don't have one of those, either! I have been collecting milk glass for many years. Imagine my surprise when a dear co-worker dropped by my office with a tattered box containing several pieces of milk glass! Joanne was helping a friend clean out her mother's home when they came across this box in the attic. She knew I would appreciate the glassware. As I began to unpack the box, I was surprised to see a lovely Hobnail set consisting of six- 9 ounce glasses, a pitcher, vase and candy dish. Here is a picture of the set after I removed it from the box, prior to cleaning. Isn't it a lovely set! After a little soap and water, the dust and dirt swirled down the sink to reveal beautiful, creamy white glass. The set is now displayed with my other treasured and much used pieces. This was not the first time a piece of milk glass appeared on my desk from Joanne. She might see a piece at a yard sale and pick it up for me. Such a thoughtful friend! Psalm 17:17 tells us that "A friend loves at all times". Both my Shoe Fairy and Milk Glass Fairy are wonderful examples of loving, generous friends!
