The Early Bird!

Hi everyone! I'm joining some old friends and a new (to me) meme this week. The new meme is Weekly Words to Live By, I've always been drawn to inspirational sayings and have quite a few "words" scattered around the house.
"Things may come to those who wait, but only the things left by those who hustle."
-- Abraham Lincoln 

I love milk glass and found this fun pitcher at the Salvation Army as soon as it opened this morning. It's in perfect condition and was $3.99!
The pitcher holds over seven cups and will be used for iced tea on Sundays when my family comes to dinner!
Have a happy day:@)
I'm joining the following parties:

  9. Thanks for coming by for a visit! My daughter likes milk glass and I found a pitcher similar to yours for her. Her small apartment means I get to enjoy it at my home, though. I must remind myself it belongs to her! ♥♫

  10. Yea! Glad you were the one to find this treasure. My mother had a nice collection of milk glass and now one of my nieces has it. I'm glad she wanted it, and that the grandchildren allowed the collection to stay together. ~ Sarah

Thanks for being a great blogging friend.
