I’m All About That… Mercury Glass

If someone was to ask me if I collect anything, my first response would be no. However, upon further reflection, there are a lot of things I collect. I’m all about antique glass, mason jars, milk glass, kraft wrapping paper, pedestal stands and as you’ll see in this post — mercury glass.

I’m simply in love with mercury glass. I consider it a must have staple for decorating my house and using at parties. And when I gathered all my votives together to do the photo shoot for this post, I realized I might just have an obsession.

my love has grown to obsession. Why am I obsessed and think you should be too?

  1. It’s simply beautiful. If I see it, I must have it. The majority of my collection is votive holders, but I love vases, figurines, lamps, mirrors or anything else they make in this lovely metallic finish.
  2. It goes with anything.  You can interchange  pieces throughout the rooms in your house and it will just work. And if you’re hosting a party, they add a great final touch to any theme.
  3. There are so many different shapes, sizes, patterns and colors — mercury accents create that perfect eclectic, yet unified, look.
  4. Votives look great even when they are unlit.
  5. The soft glow of the votives creates an elegant and enchanting atmosphere.
  6. It’s widely available. My favorite places to buy are West Elm, Home GoodsT.J.Maxx and antique stores.
  7. It’s affordable. You can get a votive for as low as $3 at Home Goods and you can get even luckier and find sets of 6 for as low as $10.
Votives look great even when they are unlit. The soft glow of the votives creates an elegant and enchanting atmosphere.

I buy mercury glass the way other women buy shoes.

Each piece is unique, how could I not buy it?  Note: I don’t have it all out all the time. It’s grown so large because it’s a staple for party decorating!

Oh, did I mention it even comes in colors! I obviously fell in love with the red — it adds that perfect sparkle for Christmas decorating and Valentine’s Day is coming!
