In our new place we have this rather large cutout in the wall above the fireplace.
The fireplace is two-sided and opens to both the dining/living room and into the kitchen.
Since I don't have any big things to fill the space I decided to display some white and Jadite milk glass in it.
These are the pieces I normally have stashed away in cabinets and that we don't use every day.
Though not really milk glass, this is my favorite vase:
So from practically every angle of the first floor I can see my collection. It makes me happy.
Wishing you a happy day!
