Won't change it again until Fall!

Here is my newly arranged teacup shelves and dining area done up for summer.  I won't change it again until the fall.  I have gotten so I must have and use my mercury glass each and every season or holiday!


I love my green transferware here.  Wish I had more of these pieces.



Some things I just have to use all year long.  Like the antique music medallion I made last December.  Hope you all have a lovely last week of April, and may all your springtime wishes come true!
Wait, just added these pictures to the mix, because I just made this over the weekend.
I spray painted an old frame with a mirror in it.  The mirror was in there to good and so just painted the over the mirror too.  I thought to myself, what could I mount on the front of it and I remembered this decorative spoon that a friend made for me and gave me years ago.  I think it looks really spiffy on this white frame, don't you?
 Remember the candlestick I got on Saturday?  Well I just sprayed it silver and did a faux mercury glass treatment on it.

A glass chimney finishes it off really nicely!

Pretty collections. Never heard a cloche being called a glass chimney. Always a great way to display things.
