Glass cake stands & domes

Sweet Display by Country Living
I am planning my Christmas Winter Woodland candy table at the moment. So, I am delighted to be reviewing some glass cake stands from diverse retailer, CSN stores. They sell all kinds of wonderful products, from beautiful wardrobes to the prettiest cake stands and flan dishes.

Keep an eye out for my review that will feature either my new "Winter Woodland" Christmas cake design or my "Winter Woodland Christmas" inspired gingerbread bird house.

In the meantime, here's what I did last Christmas:

Hush Autumn/Fall 2010

Hush
Star pyjamas by Hush
Sloppy Joe dress by Hush
Vintage rose pyjamas by Hush
Pure Silk pyjamas by Hush
Striped bed socks by Hush
This week for my 'shops i love' page I bring you Hush, my favourite Luxe loungewear boutique for pyjamas, robes, and knitted accessories. I just adore their comfy but flattering cotton flannel pyjamas, with a wide leg low rise trouser and oversized shirt with scoop hem and breast pocket. They are perfect for chilly nights in front of the fire. I admit to having quite a few pairs that arrive in a matching bag, enveloped in tissue paper and placed in the chicest of gift boxes. How can a girl resist that?

Have a sweet day!

The New Covent Garden Market

Cream berries



Twig Bowl



Birch vase


If you live in or around London I highly recommend a visit to the New Covent Garden Market, situated within a five minute walk of Vauxhall station in south London. It's open Monday to Friday from 3.00am to 11.00am and 4.00am to 10.00am on Saturdays.

"New Covent Garden Market is the largest fruit, vegetable and flower market in the UK. Located in the heart of the capital, we pride ourselves on being the focus for food and flowers in London and we are the choice of many leading chefs, florists, restaurants, hotels, schools and hospitals. With over 200 businesses on site, offering the highest quality, range and service, we know you’ll find the right company here to supply all your catering and floristry needs."

My favorite business at The New Covent Garden Market is C Best, who sell a dizzying array of vases, candle holders and props used by the top party planners in the UK. Christmas is no exception and they have the largest baubles I have ever seen! You'll find wreaths that are glittered and feathered, ribbons, beads and feathered birds to adorn your gifts. As they open at 3.00am, I have been known to get a little shopping done before work!

On a recent visit I picked up some berries, a twig bowl, a realistic looking bark vase and some brown tissue paper for my "Winter Woodland Christmas".

Have a sweet day!
