Ten years of collecting vintage mercury balls and I still don't have enough to make a decent wreath. Grrr.
I blame Martha Stewart and her "tag sales" for scooping up the loot before the rest of us have a shot.
In fact, I don't know about you, but I have never even been to a "tag sale."
In fact, I'm beginning to think "tag sale" is just a Connecticut term for "eBay."
I decided to take my small-yet-passable collection out of the box and hang them from my chandelier, Mrs. Snow. She never looked so good. I'm glad, because she is going to be wearing that dress until Valentines. Lookin' good Mrs. Snow!
Has anyone out there tried this trick using acetone to make new mercury glass look old? It didn't work for me. Maybe I missed something. Sigh. Next year....
