Clementine/Mandarin orange candles

I was so inspired by Apartment Therapy’s new vimeo workshop on making these sweet clementine candles (we would call them Mandarin oranges here in Australia. Clementines are way redder.).

So sweet. Would have been perfect for the simple winter dinner I whipped up for my in laws earlier this week. I used mandarins in my salad.

On the table, twice cooked field mushrooms with cream, oregano, garlic; chicken with dukkah and a salad of mandarins, walnuts, grape tomatoes, raddichio, butter lettuce and rocket with my fav cheese: bocconcini! :)

The Woman behind the Blog

Welcome to my blog! It’s such a pleasure having you here.

What are you inspired by? I am inspired by beautiful and bright interiors, fabric, furniture, pinks, yellows, greens, chairs, china, trees, chocolate, peonies, hydrangeas, cherry blossoms, roses and rhubarb with cream.

Friends and family call me drey (pronounced 'dree'... short for Audrey) and I can often be found zipping through op-shops and vintage stores in the Blue Mountains, NSW, Australia.
