These items were given to me by a friend who noticed my milk glass.

I can't wait to use them for taco night.
They look so cute on my counter.
When thinking about items to buy for your home. Think Glass. It has so many uses, and always looks so pretty. It adds a glamour effect to almost anything, but it almost always has a practical use as well.
