After a lovely trip to Italy for a friend’s wedding, everything seems a bit boring today in comparison. Then this beautiful postcard from brand new mail order company Bottle Green Homes landed on my desk and cheered me up!

Oooh, I do like a vintage bottle. Or five. And there are lots of other lovely things from some of my favourite stockists on the Bottle Green Homes website too – have a look!

Nice photography from Jon Day. I’m busy compiling our Christmas gift guide today and gathering all the entrants for the Anglepoise lamp give-away – 6pm is the deadline, so now’s the time to enter if you haven’t already! I’ll announce the winner tomorrow. – Ellie

A plea to RE

June 24, 2010

Oh RE. Naughty RE. You just keep on tempting me with your RE-found objects, and your RE-ally lovely vintage bits and RE-cycled bobs. It’s always the same. Just when I think I’ve seen it all, and I’m RE-ady to RE-tire, you ping me a tasty little email and TEASE me with your latest REeeee-diculously nice collection: little milk bottles, butterfly plates (liddle beeet Lou Rota), chandelier crystals (who knew? but I need one) and, your final trick – crochet hangers. Which. You. Know. I. Can’t. RE-sist. Sigh.

But I forgive you your sins, RE. Because it’s not you – it’s me. And these new products are SO RE-freshing! What wouldn’t I give to be at this garden party right now, elderflower champagne in hand…

These little milk bottles look SO lovely with tea lights and single blooms – this is a fab styling idea for a wedding!

Mmmm, loving these vintage-style candle holders…

…and, of course, these hangers. Particularly pleasing in a tREe. – Ellie
