Milky Milky

18 May

There’s something really pleasing about old skool glass milk bottles. Part of the appeal, for those of us who grew up with a milk round, is pure nostalgia; and part of it is that they just look so chic. A row of bottles with a single bloom in each is a look that’s almost impossible to get wrong (and it’s cheap, too).

If you haven’t got any old bottles in your shed, try boot sales, junk shops and antique stores. Then again, you could just cheat…

One of my favourite online shops, www.dotcomgiftshop.com sell cute traditional mini milk bottles (below), for £2.95 each, or a crate of six for £8.94. For something that really does look like a genuine antique, go for a vintage milk bottle from Pedlars (www.pedlars.com), £7.95. Or, you can opt for a Pintie jug (bottom), made from real bottles sourced from across the UK – they cost £16.99-19.99 from www.giftedpenguin.co.uk.

Finally, I’m just a little bit in love with this quirky double-headed Milkii jug, £30, from http://www.myhaus.com (top of the page). It would look fantastic on any breakfast table.

    cute, and using one as a flower vase is a great idea! I have an antique milk bottle that I filled with cute diaper pins for decor in my daughter’s bedroom when she was a baby!
