These are a few of my favorite things...
A stunning crystal glass slipper;
Nina perfume by Nina Ricci, because the red apple bottle reminds me of Snow White;
A heart enflamed - I bought this pretty tea-light holder from Dornoch in the Scottish Highlands last September;
Cinderella's Coach perfume bottle that I've had since I was a young girl;
"A little bird told me..." - also bought from Dornoch in the Scottish Highlands last year
|A silver tray of fairytale romance...|
I like to put little collections of trinkets together on a tray for decoration and dot them around my home. Usually the trays are themed, like the fairytale one pictured and they change periodically, depending on new items I might have bought, holidays I've been on that I want to remember and the changing seasons.
I see these trays as miniature altars to beauty and prettiness - it is something I have done since I was a small child, making collections and displays from my best loved possessions. It is such a simple way to bring personality to one's home and a touch of magic and enchantment too.
