    A plea to RE

    Oh RE. Naughty RE. You just keep on tempting me with your RE-found objects, and your RE-ally lovely vintage bits and RE-cycled bobs. It’s always the same. Just when I think I’ve seen it all, and I’m RE-ady to RE-tire, you ping me a tasty little email and TEASE me with your latest REeeee-diculously nice collection: little milk bottles, butterfly plates (liddle beeet Lou Rota), chandelier crystals (who knew? but I need one) and, your final trick – crochet hangers. Which. You. Know. I. Can’t. RE-sist. Sigh.

    But I forgive you your sins, RE. Because it’s not you – it’s me. And these new products are SO RE-freshing! What wouldn’t I give to be at this garden party right now, elderflower champagne in hand…

    These little milk bottles look SO lovely with tea lights and single blooms – this is a fab styling idea for a wedding!

    Mmmm, loving these vintage-style candle holders…

    …and, of course, these hangers. Particularly pleasing in a tREe. – Ellie

These cute, cosy knitted vases from Ferm Living (they’ll be stocked at 95% Danish too this autumn) are getting me in a wintery mood…

    These pics have just given me an idea. An idea which involves a pair of scissors and a knackered old jumper I own… – Ellie
