Silver Candlesticks and venetian glass mirrors....these are a few of my favorite things....

I was looking around my house today and it suddenly dawned on me that my decor was taking on a certain look that has just become apparent to me.  I know that I love silver candlesticks and venetian mirrors with all that sparkle and bling, but I didn't realize just how much until I finally noticed how I've put them together.  You know what I mean, it just happens and one day you notice that it all looks so good!

My mantle sort of just became a drop-off spot for candlesticks that I would pick up here and there. 

Or I would just sit one on the diningroom table and leave it with the intention of going back and rearranging everything.

Then I found myself drawn to sparkly ventian mirrors or frameless, beveled edge mirrors and started hanging them up at random......




I think I need to go look for some more..................see yall later.

Oh Sissie...everything is just gorgeous! I wish I had not given so much of my silver to my daughter, but, at the time she was more into it than I was..so am starting over.
Your mantel is...just precious! Those MIRRORS!
You, Sissie, are one of those women who just HAVE IT! :)

You have a beautiful home Sissie, and I do love the silver. I used to really like the gold, but now I'm liking the silver so much more... what is this girl going to do...

I do hope you show more of your home, I find it so appealing and very inspirational.

Bye for now-
