I just couldn't wait to let you see these amazing Mercury Glass Candle and Votive holders. Beautiful ornaments and Mirrored Vases and Goblets. So beautiful and what a lovely way to dress up your romantic home decor. These beauties can be used all year round which makes them such a popular item. Grab them while you can. I only have a small supply.

You can find them on my website under the Mercury & Mirrored Glass category.
Have fun shopping ladies.

I found these gorgeous French etched Apothecary jars and Perfume bottles a few weeks ago. I was chomping at the bit until I had time to frill them up. Finally on Saturday I turned on the glue gun and went to town. Yup, burned two fingers doing it too! Ouch and blisters.

I love the way they came out. Today I'm back down at my Glitz and Glam station dreaming up a few more wreaths and hopefully beginning some holiday treasures I have in mind.

I also posted a pic of the coolest vintage fan I found on my antiquing trip two weeks ago. These are the hottest new item and was shown on the spring cover of Romantic Homes. It's on my website for sale.

See you all in the blogesphere and have a great day everyone.

Another wonderful old treasure turned into a new and pretty Vanity or Tea Tray. Of course, I forgot to take "Before" pictures once again.

I purchased this lovely OLD tray at a Consignment shop while visiting a friend this spring. The glass was broken and it was a dark wood, but it was all original. A beautifully ornate frame with brass handles. How could I resist the thought of reviving this lovely.

The vintage wallpaper came from Heather's boutique, "Pretty Petals". When it arrived, I just knew what piece I was going to use for this gorgeous tray. The color blue and the gorgeous swirls of rose vines were just perfect for this project. Linen white paint and vintage, satin gathered trim was placed all along the bottom of the tray. I'm almost running out of this trim which I use on everything ~ and I don't know where I'll ever find it again! I'm keeping my eyes open at every estate sale and auction I attend.

Four glass feet placed on the underside of the tray gave it the final "touch of elegance" which will keep it sitting about one inch high off your vanity or tea table. So pretty and a "One-of-A-Kind" treasures from Treasured Heirlooms boutique.

What do you think of the finished treasure? I'd love to hear your comments and have a great blogging day ladies.
