A very productive day...

Another rainy day in Oxford, which means i can relax and get out my books!One of my absolute favourite books at the moment is 'Kirstie Allsopps Homemade Home' She is such an inspiring and creative woman. There are lots of lovely things i want to try my hand at, especially Candle Making and Fabric Decoupage.

I tried making her 'Teacup Candle' unfortunatley i don't have any fancy or vintage teacups, but found some standard ones that would do the job! These were just plain unscented natural wax candles, maybe when i'm a bit more advanced i can try scented/colour ones!

I will be keeping these ones i think :)

Candle Teacup in need of a home!

This was my first go, so i think i  might keep the blue teacups as they'll look lovely in my bathroom. Once i get my hand on some more cups (Currently raiding the Charity shops) i can make some more, and hopefully sell them on my stall at the Oxford Craft Market.


  1. I love those blue ones, they look just as lovely as vintage ones!
    Kirsties book is great isn't it?
    Have a lovely weekend sweetie!
