OOOO.....AAAAAAAH................................................MERCURY GLASS!


Mercury Glass, it's sooooo pretty and feminine! I just love it clustered together and illuminated. It gives such a sparkly festive look to a space. Now don't just think silver, there's also the pretty pinks and soft teals, reminiscent of my Frenchy friend, Marie Antoinette. I know it looks great, especially during the holidays. If you're like me, you'll leave it up all year round. Don't be afraid, it really is worthy of being out 365 days of the year. Ok, maybe the Christmas balls can be deep sixed for a while, but votives, candlesticks, bowls, jars and canisters should definitely be front and center. Take a look and see what you can do with mercury glass!

Mercury glass is absolutely beautiful isn't it? I saw some recently at TJ MAXX. Probably not the same stuff you have, but nonetheless, I've been meaning to go back and get some. i love the way it sparkles too~
