My Pressed Glass Tea Light Holders and Butlers

pressed glass bowls and dishesI love smelly candles and candle light and have started to look for pieces of old pressed glass in charity shops to put tea lights and small candles in as they give off the most beautiful twinkly light when put in them and have more character than modern holders.
Pressed glass bowlsI think the most I have paid so far (in a charity shop) is 50p ….. so if they get broken or I tire of them, it’s neither here nor there …..
Butlers Pressed Glass summer drinking goblet….. although I did splash out £3.99 each on three Mont Fleuri  glasses from Butlers in Notting Hill.
And talking of Butlers …. they have some very lovely stuff …..
ZINC - Flower boxes….. like these flower boxes ….
Butlers Bath Caddy….. this bath caddy
clip_image002….  this Patchwork style chest of drawers.
….. and finally this dome cloche …… all totally and absolutely gorgeous!
