old silver is a very thankful decorating tool. you can polish it for sparkle, or leave the tarnish for a distressed look.
Another pinner said: "Mercury glass. Big fave. I use it year-round and swap out the greenery, flowers, etc to go with the seasons. Perch a pumpkin or gourd in the Fall, evergreen branches or bare twigs in Winter, tulips in the Spring, fresh flowers or greenery from the garden in the Summer."
