Holiday Dining Block Party & GIVEAWAY

by Sherry
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 8×10 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.

Your dining room is very pretty, Sherry, as well as elegant and classy. Unfortunately I don't do a table setting, so I don't get to play with everyone at your party, but I will be lurking alot :). Your give-a-way is very generous.

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 also like your decorating style. The color on your walls in the dining room is a perfect host to your decorations. I enjoy blue transferware too and have a wonderful collection of Allerton's Blue Willow. Merry Christmas.

Hi Sherry,
Just discovered blogging, fascinated with your website adding it to my home page. Your unique and clever coastal arrangement so beautiful, wish I could recreate it here before our company arrives. Thanks for sharing. Intaglios and their history were new to me, what a lovely idea to display them like you have.

Hi Sherry, Your decor is beyond beautiful, I live in Tampa bay and have never had such lovely, beach decor. Count me in on the giveaway, please. I don't know if anyone else mentioned this, but I got a chuckle out of you stating add the giveaway to your side"board" instead of side"bar", ha, ha – a mistake only a home-style blogger would make. Hugs, Kim

A follow I am. Please know that the most interesting thing about your giveaway is that you have furnished the history behind your project gift. History is 'one of my great loves' and had I been a teacher this would have been my major.

Thank you and Mary Christ Mass aka Merry Christmas,
