Love of Shell Pink Glass

I am participating in  my first Pink Saturday this week.  Click on the Pink Saturday button in the side bar and be carried away to a real treat!  Thanks for hosting this fun event!!

Being rather new to blogging, I have been visiting around and meeting wonderful new friends and viewing their blogs.  One day I stumbled on a blog with the Shell Pink Milk Glass which I truthfully had never seen before.  I learned that it was made by the Jeannette Glass Company for only two years and then discontinued.  It was manufactured in 1958 and junior and senior year in high school.  Looking in the mirror, and thinking back that far in time, puts it all in clear view.  At any rate, I immediately fell in love with this glass and started to collect that very day I discovered it.  That is why my 91 year old mom refers to me as "instcollector"....which simply put means "instant collector".

Here is the piece that arrived yesterday via an Ebay seller.  It is a covered compote with an intricate design.

The shell pink is the most delicate pink on earth. 

Here is my new Shell Pink Compote in a spring tablescape.  Hopefully, you can see how delicate the pink color really is.....just a glimmer of pink.  I think it is heavenly.

Thanks for allowing me to join in on this wonderful "pink" event and I look forward to meeting each of you as the weeks go along.  Have a wonderful week ahead and stop by for a sip of tea.........Tea Party Everyday...........why not!

Hi Phyllis...

Sooo happy that you decided to share your pink milk glass with us for the Sunday Favorites party, my friend! As I mentioned last week, I had never seen it before. It is GORGEOUS! Ohhh really is the most delicate shade of soft pink...I love it! Your covered compost is exquisite. I love all of the beautiful embossed patterns! Thank you so much for sharing your lovely pink milk glass collection with me...I now can say that I have seen it!
