A Milk Glass Taco??? What???

That's right.  A milk glass taco.  At least that's what I call it. 

I saw one on Heather Bullard's blog a few years ago and I just had to find one for myself.  I believe their technical name is a banana stand.  (Ummm, yeah, did I fool you that I really knew what I was talking about?  I don't really know it's official name, but I've seen it called banana dish and banana stand so we'll go with that, 'kay?)

Now that divine Heather used it on a buffet to hold rolled up napkins.  LOVED that idea!  Even used it (once) for one of Baby Bee's birthday parties.

Now that poor Milk Glass Taco sat sad and neglected out in our sunroom, just gathering dust.

just the other day
I was sharing my concern (okay, I was ranting) with my family about how our mail gets spread out all over the kitchen table.
(Don't you just LOVE when that happens?)
Milk Glass Taco meet Milk Glass Napkin Holder meet Milk Glass Today's Mail Holder!
Perfect Cottage Charm!  
And you know me.  I had to decorate it a bit and I ADORE labels.
I have to admit – it makes me smile every time I come home and see the mail all cutely bundled up in it. (Yeah, you've caught me again - I'm not smiling at the bills - but before I know they're bills I'm smiling!)  

And now you might be asking yourself, why does she have a picture of that?
Well, I've been promising you a giveaway and here's reveal #1!  
Intrigued?  Hope so!
