The ladies at Christmas in Maxwell are ready to help you decide on your holiday theme and how to decorate to make your home the envy of all your friends.
This year they are featuring mercury glass ornaments that are so beautiful that you will be amazed at how your home looks like a Christmas wonderland. Mercury glass was first blown in England and America in the mid-nineteenth century with stunning results. Mercury is never used for food preparation, dishes or drinking glasses. However, collectors are particularly fond of mercury glassware for decorating purposes.
British and American glass blowers use different techniques to blow the glass but the basic process is the same. Creating the glass begins with the blower creating an outer glass and an inner glass. The mercury is inserted between the two walls of the glassware and then blown into various designs. The silver color of the mercury gives the glassware a special glow. Unique Christmas ornaments are all beautiful and compliment each other perfectly.
No matter which style you choose, mercury glass ornaments will give your home a beautiful festive appeal. If you live in a historic home you will probably want to decorate to compliment the era that your home was built. A modern home will, of course, be appealing in a contemporary decor’.
Though it is a little early, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.
