I was recently ‘decorating’ our tree at Queen B for a function I was having and got myself some lovely suede thonging to hang our beautiful, glass teardrop candleholders from. I don’t consider myself to be a doyenne of style, so I was very excited when people wanted to take them home exactly as I had them.
Cue… new product!
Glass Teardrop Gift Pack with tealights
So, here’s a time and money saver! A beautiful, glass teardrop candleholder + 1 metre of suede thong (strap) and 2 x 4-5 hour Queen B tealight candles. Usually a bargain at $24.95, but an absolute steal until midnight on 7th October 2011 at 20% off that price – only $19.96. In the photograph above, the teardrop to the far right uses the full metre of thong, so there’s plenty in the pack.
Available in clear teardrops (for a limited time… we only have 24 teardrops remaining and our supplier has just told me this morning when I tried to order more that they were out and weren’t planning on making any this side of Christmas. Ouch. I was tempted to tell them of the Queen B philosophy of ‘just work harder’… work longer… never say no… until I was reminded of my aim for more balance in my life!

Just one word of warning…
As we were throwing the roller door open for the night, I went to Bunnings and bought a couple of braziers and goodies for a couple of open fires for everyone to stay warm around… only problem… seems that Bunnings are selling an illegal product and the Fire Department hadn’t bothered to tell them.
I am usually a massive fan of Firies, Ambo’s, Police etc. It think they generally do a really thankless job for relatively little pay, but I have to say that this bunch were rude and obnoxious. Unfortunately they deemed that our brazier (surrounded by 100 square meters of concrete) was way to dangerous and we were made to put them out. Wouldn’t want to be the Bunnings buyer in charge of that department tomorrow.
Thankfully the lights were consistent with Bastille Day.
