Homeware Wishlist & Stuck on Storage Ideas!

Boo!

I hope you're all having a wonderful week, and enjoying the glorious weather:) So this weeks post is about one of my (many) loves: homeware. I won't go on about it as I actually blogged about it HERE which includes several adorable homeware ornaments if any of you are interested.

Because he knows how much I love homeware related things, J very sweetly bought me this simple yet beautiful heart storage drawer. One problem though...I'm not too sure what to store in it!! At the moment I'm storing little tealight candles (another one of my obsessions haha) but I feel that I should really use it for something else. So, what do you guys suggest? Jewellery? Any suggestions would be very much appreciated :) 

If any of you are looking for a gift for your girlfriend or girl friend, this will be perfect. Even without putting anything in the drawers, and making it useful, I think it makes a really beautiful standalone home ornament:) 

Below are just a few more snaps of this cute little drawer set, and also the link if any of you are interested :) I've also included a little homeware wish list as well. I'm not entirely sure how other bloggers make their wish lists look so good! What website do you all use to make those wish list collages? :)

This is from Dunhelm and you can buy it HERE. Its description states vintage, but I'm not sure why. Some of the photos shown on Dunhelm's website makes the drawers look quite yellow which isn't the case. It's a clean, simple white :)

    1. The bad thing about looking through homeware lists browsing online etc is that you feel you need things which you dont actually need...I really need a shoe tidy organisational thing, as I have shoes everywhere haha;p Thank you very much! They're not too bad :) Take care! x
