Getting cosy...

Are you getting ready for Christmas yet?  Have you taken down that box full of Christmas decorations from the attic or the garage?  

Putting out a few more candles at night?   I must admit I am.  I love candles and I love how they immediately add ambiance to a room, make it warmer and give it a soft glow.  Turn off those pendant lights and leave on only a table lamp or two and let the candles light the rest of the room.  Real cosy!

Have a great week!

Tea trolley or drinks trolley

With Halloween and Guy Fawkes behind us I'm slowly preparing myself for Christmas and lately I've been thinking about having an old fashioned drinks trolley.

Not sure why but for me they conjure up images of GLAMOUR

They always look so elegant...and with the festive season in sight it's easy to change a tea trolley or a console table into a glamorous cocktails display...so what do you think?  

Tea or cocktails...

I'm going to be scouring the antique and second hand stores for a tea trolley to spruce up!
