Ornament shopping...continued.

Hello bloggers.
It's Monday night, and I'm getting ready for bed..but first wanted to show you the neat ornaments I found yesterday. Remember, the day I was shopping for ornaments, and brought home a lamp?

The first thing I saw when I walked into the shop yesterday were these awesome mercury glass acorns. They were hung on a big tree right next to the door.
I ended up with two large ones, and three smaller ones.
I also bought a few other silver ornaments, but the acorns are my favorites.


I also LOVE these blue bulbs. They look really nice with all the white in the house.

There were these wonderful baubles too!  I wanted to hang them on the chandelier in the dining room.
You can't  have too much bling on a chandy, can you?!
I probably should have bought round ones, but I couldn't resist the square ones.
Little by little, the lakehouse is getting dressed for the holidays.  We'll be cutting a fresh tree for the living room this week sometime. I'll show you that when it's all prettied up.
Have a great night everyone!
Debbie

  8. Hi Debbie...hope you had a great Thanksgiving...I love your new acorn ornaments...mercury glass in any form always reminds me of the 1940's....I don't even know if that's when it was first popular but it sounds good...LOL....and that lamp you found is fabulous...I have never seen a lamp with a built in magazine rack before....it's very cool...

  14. OOOh you have a white tree!! You lucky girl!! It looks really nice with the silvery acorn ornaments + snowflake ones! My radar is on the hunt for a discount special white tree; if I can find one. ;)I have those same blue bulbs only in pink except one broke last week. I am feeling much better thank you for your well wishes!

  15. It is looking great Debbie, little by little is the way to go. I have seen Mercury glass everywhere today. I am so sorry I had a big piece in my hand and put it down..I hate when I do that, because now I want it and will have to make another trip. Your little acorn is way too cute!

  16. Believe me when I say that you aren't missing much. What we lack in culture is made up in slot machines and smokers. I'd much rather live on the lake...like YOU! Haha! It's a fun weekend getaway destination spot with lots to do and even more to see. Just make sure you look me up when you make your way out here...
