Kitsch has a good and a bad side. For me, this patio snack set is on the cute good side. I came across this 1950’s cute milk glass breakfast or snack set through Jenn Ski’s blog.
I bought it from a friendly etsy seller. She inquired if the package arrived intact. Blue Sky Days sells fine vintage and handmade goods that she collected over the last 8 years.
This set brings a new style to my tableware collection. The design feels fun and out of the ordinary. In the 1970’s, my mother has milk glass cups, so I guess there is an emotional connection. My husband likes it too.
This snack set is ideal to serve breakfast. Since I prefer drinking my morning coffee in a larger cup, I can serve yogurt or a fruit in the cup and put my toasts on the plate. Luckily, it harmonizes with my coffee/tea cup from my Chirp Dinnerware set by Lenox.
At lunch, I can serve a panini with a small soup or salad in the cup on a terrace.
I am saying thank to graphic designer and artist Jenn Ski. Without her, I would have missed this etsy find.

i inherited this set- my husband loves to use the cups to heat maple syrup and butter in the microwave. unfortunately, he broke one of the cups a few months ago and i dropped one in the sink yesterday and it broke as well. i would love to find more of these cups.

CG: Blue Sly Days had a few when I bought my set. She does not advertise the set anymore but maybe she has an incomplete set. I suggest you contact her through her etsy seller’s contact form.
