I have had no problem finding gold, red and green but have had to hunt a little harder for these beautiful soft blue and orange ones. I have yet to stumble on the pinks but my hunt continues...
I am finding that the more I decorate with them, the more I want them to be the star of the show and have scaled back a lot of my other decorations.
Somehow they look best to me, in tarnished silver and mismatched glass bowls.
And pairing them with mercury glass (mine is new and not vintage) seems to be a natural mix. While I am not ready to abandon my traditional Christmas colors and decor, it's fun to change it up once in a while and see things in a new perspective, don't you agree?
I have finished with the family room (except the tree which will be selected this weekend) and am on to the dining room and kitchen today.
We are in for a wonderful few days of cloudy, rainy weather so once I'm finished, a nice hot cup of tea with the twinkling lights going is at the top of my list.
Thank you for sharing your "yes, I did," moments with me. It's always good to know that we're not alone in life's laughable moments. And yes, I was rushing out the door so I am sure that's why I didn't take that final peek in the mirror! Oh well, we have to be able to giggle at ourselves if we are going to stay sane in life, right?
I will be picking the Shabby Apple give away winner tomorrow morning and there aren't many entries, so your chances of winning the $50.00 gift certificate are pretty high. If you haven't left a comment, you can head over to this post and leave one today!
