I’d be lying if I said I haven’t been dreaming of Christmas while scrolling through Pinterest for the past um… month! So to say I have too many decorating ideas swirling in my head right now is an understatement.
Being in this new house has gotten me extra excited, and the one element I keep finding myself snatching up and using everywhere this year is mercury glass. I luuuuuurv how it’s vintage and timeless and weathered and elegant and creates this gorgeous glow all around the house at night when lights are glowing and candles are ablaze. Le sigh…
It works so well for so many different decorating styles. And even though I’m going big time on the mercury glass stuff this Christmas, it’s even more awesome because it can be used any time of year. I usually leave out our mercury glass candles and vases all through winter so the house doesn’t feel so empty when the holiday greenery comes down.

I’ve been slowly collecting it over the years, but I found so many good deals on mercury glass decor while I was out shopping this week that I thought I’d share them with y’all, if you’re a fan too. I had no idea there was such a thing as mercury glass string lights and and a mercury glass globe, but now I’m intrigued.
Just click the links below the pictures to find the sources online. (Several like the ones from Kirkland’s, Wayfair, H&M, and Hobby Lobby can almost always be paired with coupons from Ebates too, FYI.)
