Just a few snapshots of our Christmas decorations this year.  Love the display of mercury glass with fresh greens.



Shell bottles and fresh greens … along with red velvet ornaments purchased at ABC Home in NYC.

DSC01100Didn’t have much time to decorate this year … so kept the family room simple.

Just added red frames, striped ornaments and red mercury glass to existing book shelves.  No time this year to do any more!

Mercury glass can be a nice touch in holiday decorating.  Whether it’s candlestick holders, votives, vases, bowls, ornaments or other items … there are so many different ways to use them throughout your home.

I use my large mercury candlestick holders throughout the year.  I have several from Pottery Barn and others from places like TJMaxx.  They look pretty on mantels, part of tablescapes and other holiday vignettes.  With the popularity of mercury glass, you can find knock offs inexpensively.

I’ve also added a few mercury glass trees in the past couple of years.  I’ve been collecting red and silver mercury glass ornaments for over ten years — along with votive holders.  I use them for Christmas and Valentine’s home decor.  The past couple of years, Target has even sold votive holders in multiple colors.

Happy Holiday Decorating!
