Mercury Glass

Magnificent Obsession
A couple of weeks ago on my birthday, I spent the day with my friend Deidra who knowing me...suggested we spend the day shopping. We headed to TJ Maxx where she found this large mercury glass candle holder which I am currently using as a flower vase. It was her birthday present to me. She said I didn't need it as I have so much mercury glass already but she also knows how I can't pass up a bargain when it comes to mercury glass. Every piece I own has been bought on sale...and were just too good a deal to pass up. Plus I love it so.

I actually, have more of the stuff - large bowls and more candle holders. And I'm still on the lookout for more. I can't stop myself. I just love everything about it.

I just discovered your blog through Cindy's 'Show & Tell Friday' and I just had to tell you how much I enjoyed seeing your mercury glass collection. I also love it, and most of my pieces were on sale too. I've found some fabulous things at Christmas that are really ornaments, but can be used all year. I also love your vignettes & photos. I'm a 'follower' now. Sue : )
