Vintage Mercury Christmas Balls

Last year I bought some vintage Christmas balls in all different colors because I wanted the pinks, blues and whites ~ I had to get the oranges too because they were all mixed up ~ I am not an orange color lover for Christmas so I didn't use them ~

A few days ago I read on Andrea's blog about how you can take old mercury balls and put them in warm water and the color just comes right off ~
I had sooo much fun digging through the ugly colors and making the most beautiful mercury balls !! I am so excited ~ thank you Andrea !

I have a feeling I am going to have these everywhere, in fact I have an apothecary that is empty right now ~
