Having been quite a lengthy moving process (I have so much stuff!) with somewhat patchy internet access Beautiful Clutter has been neglected the past couple of weeks and I have really missed reading my favourite blogs while blogging myself! Pictures of the new abode will follow in the next week or two as more boxes are unpacked!
Though I prefer my clutter with stories I am also frequently taken by 'vintage inspired' bits and pieces. My most recent acquisition being this tea chest made by Gisela Graham I was given as a birthday gift, I'm an avid tea drinker so it was particularly apt and I rushed out to buy tea sachets of my new favourite blends to fill it with!
I have a thing for little boxes - they are perfect for keeping those oddments like hairpins and elastics, stamps and odd pieces of ribbon somewhere safe. The box below was a gift from a close friend the Christmas before last and I love the pressed flowers in the lid!
And because it is just so gorgeous - a card made for me by another close friend for my recent birthday . .
