Beautiful Bathrooms

The bathroom has always been a sanctuary for me,
a place to escape, to relax and unwind...

I don't really have a preference

any of these would be

perfect for me....

Soak away the blues of this miserable day!

Guilty Pleasures

One of my guilty pleasures is watching the programme Salvage Hunters,
so I couldn't wait for the weekend so that I could visit the Salvo Fair
at Stubbings Estate.

It amazes me that items that were discarded in the past are
now highly sort after by interior designers.  School chairs and stools from the science labs
were in abundance, so too were church pews and galvanised steel watering cans
which I remember my Dad using!

One company that really impressed me with their innovative designs
was Antiques By Design. Just take a look at some of their creative

Sissor lamp

Even a pair of scissors have been given a new lease of life as
a lamp!

So if you are interested in reclaimed lighting, mirrors and furniture take
a look at antiquesbydesign.co.uk you won't be disappointed!

Buy British

My favourite magazine
Country Homes and Interiors
is encouraging us to
support 'Homeland' 
makers and crafters in
their April issue
and to Buy British!

I am very proud to
say that my soy candles
are handmade by myself 
in my gorgeous home nestled in
beautiful Berkshire.

So when you buy a
Chandlers soy candle
you know it has been made
with quality ingredients
and created with love
in my home.

I hope you enjoy burning
my candles as much as I
enjoy making them

Signs of Spring

It has been a gorgeous sunny afternoon
here in beautiful Berkshire...

I have just got back from walking
our lovely dog Harry
a minature schnauzer and
was happy to see so many
signs that spring is on it's way!

A rabbit and lamb playing
and enjoying the sunshine...

Such a lovely time of year...
