New Additions to My Collection for Show and Tell

Heaven, I'm in heaven...that is what I am singing today for Monday's Show and Tell. I purchased this lovely hobnail milkglass set which included a pitcher, sugar bowl , creamer and six juice glasses to add to my hobnail collection. I thought nothing else could excite me; what more could I possibly 'need' and then my eyes set sight on this beautiful set while boutique shopping at polka dot rose ( ! Yes, we have The Polka Dot Rose (me) and polka dot rose, my new friends, Kristi and Karla. I unwrapped the goodies and immediately took pictures to capture my new beauties. I invited a friend for breakfast al fresco Saturday morning and proudly served her juice from the pitcher into the little juice glass. She was so impressed (and secretly, so was I!!). I thought I had "enough" pieces of my wonderful hobnail milkglass in my collection. I was wrong. Isn't that what treasure hunting is all about? It turned out to be a treasure indeed. Thank you Kristi and Karla for brightening my world. Enjoy Show and Tell today at all the boutiques at Make Mine Pink ( and see what treasures are awaiting you.

dear susie,
the set was simply meant for looks so lovely in the setting of your garden.
who knew when we found it way out here in california that it would be making its permanent home with you clear across the country!
we're so glad to have brought you together :)

I love hobnail milk glass. I had a set of 10 glasses, but they were left at my sister's house when I broke my leg and she kept them. Oh well -- I'll find some more.
