Milk Glass Memories...

Milk glass reminds me of my childhood. I can't pinpoint the memories, I just feel them. I have been searching for pieces in thrift shops and garage sales and have decided not to pay more than a few dollars on each piece. So far I haven't spent more than $2.00 on Fenton, Westmoreland, Hazel Atlas and Indiana milk glass pieces. I like the snowy white milk glass and I am partial to hobnail.

Just recently I found this Fenton candy dish at a garage sale for $2.00 - couldn't resist it.
And I found this sweet Fenton perfume bottle vase (1930's) for only $.99 at the Salvation Army thrift store:
I also found 8 more Hazel Atlas candy dishes at various thrift stores to add to one that was my mother's. I would like 3 more! I use them as salad/fruit bowls and I paid between $.39 - $.79 for each:
This is a sweet Indiana Glass Grape Harvest candlestick that I bought yesterday for $.99:
I'm not sure when to stop buying milk glass - haha - any suggestions??
