Mercury Glass is also known as silver glass and has been produced for many centuries. This mercury Glass is blown glass that is then silvered with a liquid silvering solution. The silvering is a chemical process that coats the glass with a reflective substance. The silvering is mottled and crates a mirrored effect. This gives the Glass a vintage style that creates the look of yesteryears. Even though it is still called Mercury Glass no mercury is used during the process.
When our range of practical and pretty silver glass is put together it creates an opulent and sophisticated look.
There are many different colours in this Glass range, but the main one is silver. We have an extensive range of tea lights in many shapes and sizes. Mercury Glass and tea lights are the perfect combination. The candle light shimmers through the glass and reflects around the room so creating a warm and luxurious feel.
Our tea light range has proven popular for shabby chic and vintage style weddings, restaurants and even at home with a posy of flowers. Candle sticks are ideal for a mantel piece or garnishing a dining table. Our trinket pots look great on a dressing table filled with rings and things. Jars with lids are ideal for cotton buds or pads. Our bottles are great as diffusers or just as a decorative piece. Place card holders add the finishing touches to your perfectly laid table or special event.
At live laugh love we love Mercury Glass and hope you enjoy it as we do.

Shabby Chic Christmas Decorations
We love shabby chic Christmas decorations at Live Laugh Love. At this time of year we will be dusting off the Christmas tree, fixing fairy lights and thing about decorating our homes. Our selection of seasonal ideas is great to help plan your shabby chic Christmas. Be inspired by berries, ribbons, garlands and candles. The vintage theme is profound throughout our range of shabby chic Christmas decorations. A wonderful gift for lovers of nostalgia is tree ornaments that have distinctive charm and remind us of times past. The wooden solders and glass snowman decorations are the perfect vintage themed gift.Use up old candles by melting them in an old pan placed inside a larger pan of heated water. Once melted lift out the old wicks and hold inside a vintage or pretty cup so its not quite touching the bottom. Pour in the melted wax and leave it to set. Trim the wick so 1 cm is visible. This idea creates a unique candle that will make a super gift.
Hanging decorations in the window using our lovely festive ribbon this will create interest with the light shining through.
Hang wreaths on doors, sacks on the bed posts and paper chains around the windows. Doves of peace hanging porcelain decorations look great in a flock in a window or on your tree.
