The sparkle of mercury glass

Several years ago, I fell in love with the look of mercury glass. I love to decorate with it all year round, but at Christmastime, it's especially fun.

I spent the whole of Friday decorating for Christmas and decided to group all my mercury glass together.


There's just something about it grouped and sitting atop my blue vintage dresser.


Here's an interesting story. Both of my sisters were helping me decorate on Friday. As we gathered my mercury glass, we found I was lacking one piece to make it look complete.

No problem, we thought. We'll all go shopping and find something to add to this.

About an hour later, the mail came. With the mail, was a package from Shannon at Fox Hollow Cottage. I had won her giveaway.

What did I win?

Well, a very sweet angel made of mercury glass! Can you believe it? Not only was Shannon's giveaway perfect, but apparently she has perfect timing as well!


Pretty cute, huh?


Do you think maybe I should raise her up a little?

Anyway, can I just say if you haven't checked out Shannon's blog, Fox Hollow Cottage yet, you won't be disappointed when you do. Shannon decorates beautifully and she has a lively personality you'll enjoy.

OK, I'll be back to share more of my Christmas decor with you soon.

Really pretty display. Isn't it amazing how great it works to group like things together? I'll make sure to visit Shannon's blog...lovely giveaway. Sure wish I had my decorating finished. Oh well! I'm sure it will get done.

It looks beautiful all grouped together Gina. It creates more of an impact. Love mercury glass too although I don't own a single piece...yet...Hopefully my hubby will get my hints this year for Christmas. Hee, hee, hee. Sending you a great big hug.

Much love,

*nice* Gina! I love mercury glass, too. I saw some gorgeous pieces in Pottery Barn. Proceeds from some of the candles there benefit St. Jude Children's hospital. I did not buy any, but they sure are pretty!

I love your little angel. She fits right in with your collection!

Wow, how weird is that an angel sent an angel just when you were looking for one!!! Divine intervention! I think she looks great as she is, I wouldn't raise her, unless you want to LOL!

Mercury glass is perfection: it sparkles, yet it's warm looking. This is gorgeous! I could swipe a piece or two....you wouldn't notice, would you?

Shannon@FoxHollowCottage said...

Remember when I said I was burried in Xmas decor? I was! That's how I missed this post. I am soooo fired. She looks sweet as can be in her new home. I think she likes you. She couldn't have found a better momma. Merry Christmas G ;)
Luv Shan
