special little things

“Some people arrive and make such a beautiful impact on your life, you can barely remember what life was like without them”.

Small Things | Big Difference: Everyone has the extraordinary little things they receive or collect along the way.  It is these little things that can often make a big difference.  I have a few items which I have collected either locally or when travelling, and they provide such pleasure being able to pull them out from time to time to create a different mood.

The hand-blown candle holders I purchased in Melbourne have been pulled out and used in so many different ways over time.  They operate with candle oil which is a safe and lovely soft glow.  These go out on loan often for friends’ weddings and social functions.

Bauble Delight | I build on my bauble supply every year.  Also, great quality glass ones naturally need to be treated and stored with great care.  Baubles don’t only have to be for Christmas; and they can be rolled out and used for other special occasions as well.

Christmas Trees in Shapes and Sizes | My paper fold-out Christmas Trees are a favourite of mine.  I also roll out the silver table runner for most occasions to add a touch of bling.

Create a Look | The black wire stands are constantly used when we entertain.  I have them in three different heights, and they provide a more exciting style of service.  I knocked the idea of elevation off from Ottolenghi’s tiered kind of a buffet. However, these are a little more delicate than the more rustic look of Ottolenghi.  I purchased these from Table Culture Subiaco, another of my favourite shops.

Pots Indoor & Out | These Seralunga pots are used both inside and outside our house.  Mostly they are filled with permanent potted plants; however, I have a few which are kept purely for decorative purposes.
