18th century inspired Gifts

Thanks to my lovely reader Alison, I would like to share the Versailles candle as today's 18th century inspired gift! Perfect for the holidays (I always seem to have more candles going this time of year- I like the cozy effect...)

Out of the Salon

I will be away from the blog for a little bit because I am moving! Yay, very exciting! But also a lot of work and stress, so for the next few days as I get settled (this has been a long process) I will not be posting. But you can find me on twitter! 

Be back soon!!
