Holiday Dining Block Party & GIVEAWAY

It's time for the Christmas Blogger Block Party and I am hosting Holiday Dining!
I am so happy you could join me.

Thank you so much Vanessa and Heather from At The Picket Fence for including me
in the Chrsitmas Blogger Block Party!  I am honored to be participating along with
such talented ladies.

I want to share our dining room dressed in a Christmas coastal theme.  I grew up in Florida, and
our previous home was on a small island, so I have always loved seashells and everything
to do with the beach. Though Steve and I no longer live close to the beach,  we still like to
add some coastal touches to our home.



I made the little tree from my collection of starfish. 


A large glass vase was filled with water, a floating candle, seashells, coral and a sea fan.  I love the
way the objects are magnified in the glass.

Now you see where I placed the green limpet tree  I made for the Copy Cat party.


I made the candles using the tissue paper and hair dryer technique.  There are quite
a few tutorials posted on other blogs and it is a easy, inexpensive way to dress up plain candles.
As you can see I have replaced some of my mercury glass since the mantel disaster last year.







This vignette is on top of the buffet.  I filled a vintage frame with faux snow and added more of 
my seashell and glass float collection. 
  


I hope you enjoyed the tour of our dining room.

GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED

NOW FOR THE GIVEAWAY....

The giveaway item was inspired by our recent trip to Italy and Greece and it is a
product I have been working on for a couple of months to perfect.  I hope you
like it as much as I do! 


Up for grabs is a 8x10 wood frame with three mounted Intaglios.  Each Intaglio is 
hand cast by me from original Grand Tour molds from the late 1700's.
They are lightly hand glazed to bring out the detail and then framed
so the Intaglios sit away from the glass.

A little History

Grand Tour Intaglios ( pronounced in-tal-yos) were marketed in Italy for wealthy
travelers as souvenirs in the late 1700's and 1800's when tourism opened up between countries
.  These were purchased as mementos of their trip by aristocrats and wealthy gentry and
brought home to be studied and mounted in frames or books.  The Grand Tour Intaglios
have become very rare and expensive, as they have been sought by serious collectors.  

To enter the giveaway...

  Leave a comment on this post and let me know you are a follower.

For an additional entry add the giveaway to your sideboard and leave a
separate comment. 

The winner will be chosen on December 21st.  The giveaway is open to
everyone..outside USA and non-bloggers welcome.  

The Intaglios are for sale now in my Etsy Shop and will soon be available in a new
on-line shop.

Now on to the Linky Party.




 
Thanks to all the sponsors of the giveaways.
Please feel free to grab a button to show you participated in the party.



Hugs,
Sherry

Hi Sherry,
Oh I love your decor! Your copycat tree is so cute, and that starfish one with the bird is to die for! I love mercury glass and have some on my mantel. This is the third year I've use pieces up there. Sure hope I don't have any disasters! I love your piece that is a tall mercury glass with a skinny cloche. It is very unique. The give away is fabulous! I have been a follower for quite some time. Love your blog!

Thanks for hosting the party. Your dining room is stunning and so many clever touches. Most of all I love the starfish "tree." What a great idea. If I had starfish, I'd copy it.

I enjoy blue transferware too and have a wonderful collection of Allerton's Blue Willow. Merry Christmas.
