Martha has definitely inspired me to take decorating more seriously. For years, I’ve been moaning about how I don’t like some of my Christmas decorations. I’ve finally started to get rid of the ones I don’t like and focus on collecting things I do like.
Last year when I was shopping the after Christmas sales, I picked up three glass tree toppers are bargain basement prices. this year, I added a mercury glass tree topper I found at Target and a smaller pink vintage German topper I bought on eBay. I’ve got them displayed on my mantel in front of the mirror and I’m thrilled with them. I hope to keep adding to this collection.
Your mantle looks amazing. What a great idea for tree toppers!
That is gorgeous!
It’s a really pretty mantle. Reading your blog has inspired me to add a couple extra touches this year, too.
I love mercury glass, and only recently learned about it myself when on a tour of Victorian inns in Healdsburg; many had mercury glass ornaments displayed. This is as gorgeous as anything I saw there; incredible!
It’s new to me too, but I love it.
