A Few of My Favorite Things

If you read my blog yesterday, you know that we are having a little difficulty in deciding how to arrange our family room, which has put the redecorating at a standstill...so on a more positive note, I decided to share some of my favorite things or "collections."

I am not much of a collector, unless you consider buying shoes and make-up collecting. There are several things that I really like and tend to buy a lot of, but I don't really have a collection of anything that I display in our home.

The one thing that I do sort of collect is peacock ornaments. I have always loved peacocks and over the past few years I have received a few peacock ornaments as gifts, and I have purchased a new one each year. I then display them on a 4 ft. silver Christmas tree each holiday season.







You have probably picked up on this already, but I love mercury glass and tend to buy mercury glass items often. Here are a few things that I have throughout our house that are mercury glass :

Mercury glass candle holders from a boutique in Fredericksburg

West Elm Mercury Glass Vases

West Elm Mercury Glass Cityscape Vase

Mercury glass decanter from Homegoods & small apothecary jar

Mercury glass canister from West Elm and soap dispenser from Dillards

Mercury glass large apothecary jar from Homegoods

Another thing that I love is coffee table books, and I have quite a few. My husband surprised me with two new ones for Christmas, Chanel and House Beautiful books, which I forgot to photograph. I have several fashion, decorating, and music books. Here are a few from my "collection"




I also love mirrored anything (I imagine an eye roll from Jett if he reads this), which is probably why I like mercury glass so much. It has a bit of a mirrored look. Here are a few mirrored pieces in our home from hanging mirrors to mirrored side tables:

Mirror in master bedroom

Mirror in guest bedroom

Mirror in entryway

Mirror above fireplace in family room

Mirrored side table in front seating area

Mirrored side tables/coffee table in family room

Mirrored side table in guest room

And finally...one of my last "collections," my babies shoes. Here is a peak at some of my shoes. I can't believe I am actually sharing this mess with you. (I'm hoping by putting this out in the blog world I'll be motivated to get my shoes more organized....hold me to it)


What are some of your favorite things or "collections?"

I love your collections! The silver tree is so cool with the pops of color with the peacock feathers. I too have a love of mercury glass, but I have to say, you've done a better job of collecting it. Great post. Thanks for visiting my blog.

Hi Samara, I absolutely adore your peacock ornaments. The colours are stunning. Thanks so much for sharing and Happy New Year.

Love your collections! My friend has peacocks and anything peacock blue on both of her two Christmas trees! Such a gorgeous color, and they especially pop and show up fantastic on a silver tree!

Thanks so much for linking up and sharing with us!
Hope you will join me every month on the first to share more of your favorites!?

Hope so!

I love all of your mercury glass. I have a lot of favorite things, so in my opinion...I think I'm always easy to shop for. I like boxes, live plants, and ornate frames.
