Diptyque - aholic......

...... surely a word.

As you may know, I love Diptyque candles.  At this time of the year exchanging Pomander and Feu de Bois for Figeur and Jasmine.

As a consequence I have a cupboard full of empty glass jars. I use mine as holders for votive candles, or planted up with tiny plants or as vases for Lily of the Valley for a summer dinner party.

Other clever folk are way more imaginative with their empty Diptyque jars......

The great thing about design as simple as Diptyque's, is that it is a versatile foil to many colours and shapes, and can be used again and again. Even on their own they make a great image.
This is my kind of re-cycling!

How do you re-use yours?

Hope you have a lovely week,

Liberty Flowers......

I can never resist taking a quick photo of the flowers displayed outside Liberty in London.

Here's a selection - usually taken with my i-phone.

Same shots, just different flowers......

Hope you don't find them too boring,  they're just so uplifting on a grey London street.

Have a lovely week,

Liz x

ps. it's also the best entrance to the shop.  I think you should have to walk through florist to enter any store - don't you?
