A favourite in my home

Today I'm playing along with Friday Pretties at I Love Pretty Little Things so thought I'd share a favourite little piece in my home - my chandelier wreath.

Again, in lieu of a real chandelier due to inappropriate light fittings in my little rented abode, I have (refused to go without;-)) added another little bit of sparkle with this crystal drop wreath which I bought last Christmas. Yup, apparently this is Christmas stock and a Christmas wreath but then again I am living in Australia (you tend to get a lighter, beachier feel) and I am living in Sydney (if you know Sydney at all then you'll know what I mean!)

Anyway it was love at first sight and this savvy shopper bought it in the sale (of course). I don't know about you but I think it's an all year round wreath/decoration/pretty thing. It hangs just as you see it at the side of my bookcase but I had to stand on a chair to get this angle!

Can you spot in the blurry background my recent thrift buys on my bookcase? Also a certain initial from a certain Typo which I mentioned last week?

Have a great weekend everyone! :-)

  9. It is definately an all year round wreath. Very charming indeed. I have been known to use christmas decos all year round. Why not? If they are pretty and don't look like traditional chrissy decos, I think, go for it!
