**Who Doesn't Love Silver?**

I love anything silver.  Better yet,  tarnished, aged, vintage looking silver.  It has a much warmer sparkle to it than anything new and bright.  German glass glitter, tarnished garland, mercury glass, and vintage jingle bells all have a special place on a shelf at Christmastime here at home.  It especially looks warm and inviting when mixed with white lights on the tree, candles lit, and bits of Christmas-y colors here and there.  Here are a few of my favorite old silver goodies.

Gorgeous photos! I love silver, mixed with lots of white, and twinkling lights too. So warm and inviting.
I've been thinking of ordering some silver glass glitter to add to my paintings, guess I should just do it already, lol!
Your blog is looking great!
