So I've mentioned I love damask. And I also love toile. And the color pink. And quatrefoil. And tiny dogs (digressing now...) but I REALLY LOVE hobnail milkglass. Love it love it love it. Might possibly want to marry it if Dave hadn't just made me lunch and also helped clean the house on his lunch break. (Seriously. Whatta guy.) So you can imagine my rapture when in the space of one week I found two hobby nobby hobnail lovelies at two different thrift stores!!!
The first was a vase. A gorgeous 12-inch hobnail milkglass vase for just $2.99! *Insert romantic sigh*
The next was a hobnail mirror, so lovely in its oval-iness, so pretty with its nubbly nobs!
I bought it thinking I would put it in the baby's vintage-themed nursery, but once I got it home I wanted it out in the open where I could stare at it all the time! So it found its home above an antique ice-box that has been in Dave's family for generations. Perfect spot!
