Blimey Benita, you put me to shame.. even the inside of your drawers are stylish. Reference the candle question, I would have to say that it's not a cultural thing either in the UK or Canada to use candles everyday... that having been said, most people HAVE them they just don't use them. They aren't stuck away in drawers like they were when I was a kid growing up.. [you know only brought out for dinner parties and birthdays], but they are mostly decorative, rather than practical. Partly I think it's 'cos they don't want to spoil them.. for example those big white church candles look beautiful when they're new, but once they're lit and the wax melts they're spoiled for ever. Everyone's got a bag of IKEA votives though.. especially good for relaxing lighting while you have a soak in the bath... I use them to save my church candles too. If you hollow out a votive sized hole in the top and then drop a votive into the hole.. you can light the votive instead of the real candle. Then when its used you just swap out the votive for another one and the big candle doesn't perish. Can I ask what the things are in the last drawer with the ring pulls on the top.??

They look great.. I really love the softness of the glow they give off. I'd love to see a photo taken at dusk to see how they light up the room. Oh and I love that New York print over your fireplace.. its just such a lovely complex blue. Oh and the apple green throw too... see there's me with the blue and green again.! Jo xx

Hi.. I especially love the blue and green glass too.. seems everything I like at the moment is blue and/or green. I too have to accommodate some husbandy stuff. He's ex military so there are endless certificates and thank you gifts and other paraphenalia. I was thinking about your boaty glasses.. you're so clever and crafty.. couldn't you make some kind of decorative box for them ?? That way you could put them on display without ever actually having to look at them ;o) Jo xx

The knobs look kind of cool.. like you say it would depend very much on the application.. Had real trouble navigating his web page though.. kept telling me I didn't have the right browser.. think that would put me off big time. Jo xx
