My newest love is shiny mercury glass!


Pottery Barn.. guess which one I ordered.

Loving this lamp.. 'tis it's fault that got me thinking that for Chris✞mas I'd like to see a wee bit more shiny in our home. I'm feeling especially Chris✞massy this year! PB

From Ballard Designs, an assorted collection of 5 candelsticks.

Also from Ballard Designs, finials. Regan would probably topple these over... frown.

Ballard Designs also has these lovely hurricanes.

Ballard Designs ornaments....

Ballard Designs pedestal. Now how cool would this be for your next get together?

Napa Style has this lovely cloche.. another great serving piece.

From Pottery Barn... some fun candleholders.

 How cool this is grouping. Would be so pretty on a New Year's table!

Maybe not mercury glass, but shiny and bright nonetheless. Perfect for a summer evening outdoors. PB!

PB ornament.. snowflakes on mercury glass. okay I'm hooked!

Restoration Hardware.. a lovely specimen indeed.


What are you thinking about adding to the decorations this year?
Something shiny perhaps? 

Thank you for your gift of time. I appreciate your visits and comments very much.
I'm linking up to the Tablescaper's Seasonal Sunday party.. See you there!

All of these are stunning. I perso ally don't own any Mercury glass, however I am inspired by all of it's beauty. I wonder if you chose the medium size one. They are all lovely, difficult to choose.

I love mercury glass too. It looks especially gorgeous at Christmas time!

Lovely to meet you-found you via the Tablescaper's party.

Best wishes,
Natasha.

I love it too, my daughter has purchased several pieces of it for Fall and Christmas. I saw a post on Pinterest on how to make your own mercury glass.

Natasha in Oz said...

Me again! I just realised that I have already visited your lovely blog many times before...I just didn't recognise the header. Have you changed it recently? Your blog looks fabulous!

Best wishes,
Natasha.

@ Life with L.. yes indeed it was the medium vase that is on it's way to our home.. Everyone needs a little bling!

I love mercury glass, Marlis. You show gorgeous examples.

I would have guessed that you ordered ALL 3 of the PB vases, but I see that you showed gracious restraint! :-) Mercury glass is so pretty. I could just kick myself a thousand times over for selling a lot of it that I had. At the time, I was just looking to create space. Rats!!! I like the way you were able to insert the cross into the word Christmas. Very cool!!!

I love mercury glass too--thanks for gathering these all up for us in one place (and I'm sure the retailers will thank you too, after we've seen your post!). Lovely settings/great ideas. Thanks!

My Christmas decor is very, very very minimal this year, probably next to nil. I won't be here, will be helping out my daughters with 3 new grandbabies but I don't want the house to look depressed since John will be home. These mercury glass ornaments are gorgeous, Marlis!...Christine
