12 days of christmas: 8 maids a milking

milk glass wedding Milk glass, though first made during the 16th century in Venice, became hugely popular in England at the end of the 19th century. Its common name obviously comes from its opaque white color and milk glass, when used in weddings, adds a lovely and clean country vintage vibe. Pair other neutral colors like tans, linens, and ivories with white to showcase your milk glass pieces.
