Christmas treasure

I blogged some time back about my Aunty Joan and her wonderful things that I now have to treasure. (Check out the blog Treasured) Well, today we re-found the best item that was given to me last year.

Before I share it with you, here’s a vintage lovely I have blogged about before.

I have picked holly and berries from the garden today for a table decoration. We are lucky enough to have 3 different types of holly bush in our new home. I have made a display in the large blue bubble vase that was hers. It sits pride of place on the Arkana table.

The real treasure is this very old metal candle holder. Light 4 candles and when the heat rises the chime bells ring and the cherubs spin. I noticed last night in Kirsty’s Homemade Christmas programme she features one at the ad break…it chimes beautifully. I am so lucky to have one and the fact that it was my Great Aunts and Uncles is even more magical.

I know nothing about them, I have infact never seen one before last year…and now Kirstie Allsop has one. If anyone else has one please let me know!
