My parcels have been a bit all over the place since Christmas, mainly due to cutting back on spending and crafting and just having a break from everything really. So, back in the new year and my first link up with Alice's LIML, I thought I'd start it slightly differently.
I received a couple of pieces to review, which will come along on their own posts in due course, and I also realised that yes at the end of January I still don't own a desk calendar for work - so I sourced a brilliant Dr Who one!
But what I wanted to mention today, was these fabulous black and white washi tapes I received, which you can pick up on eBay at rather great bargain prices.
Now the reason for me buying these is due to my bargain finds in Asda last week! I happened to pass the candle section when I noticed the small glass candles for £1 and the large pillar candles for £3 each or 2 for £5 and they smell beautiful.
I bought the candles in the sale and then went back a couple of days later as I wanted a couple for decoration (but I also wanted a couple to light)! Once I got the candles home the large pillars looked a bit bare up on my mantlepiece - hence the washi tape purchase.
Now I must stress I have only decorated the candles I will not be lighting! These are for decoration purposes only and if I ever decide to light them then the washi tape will be coming straight off.
I love how they turned out so I may have gone back to Asda whilst the sale is still on and bought a couple more pillar candles so I can have matching patterns either side of my flowers.
I think this washi tape makes the candles look so beautiful now, don't you?
