I use my milk glass in addition to displaying it. I fell in love with the rough, textured surface of Westmoreland's Maple Leaf pattern, but had no intentions of collecting white milk glass. I learned that this pattern was available in other colors, so I decided that I would only collect colored Maple Leaf glass.

When a friend presented me with a piece of Westmoreland Maple Leaf, a simple white milk glass rose bowl that he had in his possession that he no longer wanted, I still had no intentions of collecting white milk glass. It was common and I didn’t want to have just a common collection. Colored Maple Leaf….that’s what I was sure I was collecting.

But now I had this handsome white Rose Bowl and I had just seen some other white bramble on eBay that was appealing and very inexpensive. I bought a couple of white pieces from eBay and when I put all of the white Maple Leaf milk glass pieces together they made a very pretty collection. "Oh," I thought to myself, “I’ll collect the white milk glass just so that I can actually use it.”

Within a couple months I had 15 pieces of Westmoreland Maple Leaf white milk glass. I haven’t given up looking for colored pieces; I am slowly adding those to my collection as I can find/afford them. Those pics will come in another post.

    nice WG Maple Leaf collection; the WG shelf supports are a nice touch too. I love using my collection too.
