Pretty Homewares : Cabinet of Curiosities & discount code!

If you've read my blog for a while now, you may know that I am obsessed with pretty bits of homeware and decorative pieces. I'm in that limbo between loving staying at home rent free and desperately wanting my own space, so over the past few months I've been picking up some bits and bobs for the 'home' which does not yet exist but hopefully will one day! I stumbled across a lovely website called 'Cabinet of Curiosities' which of course instantly made me curious to see what was available. I fell in love with everything right away, it's the perfect mix of dainty, vintage-esque and retro homeware pieces and alternative, sugar skull/tattoo themed goodies.

A short while later, after chatting to the owner Kate on their twitter page, a very well packaged box arrived at my door full of lovely things from the website. Delivery was really quick, and everything arrived perfectly protected in it's packaging and the products are even better in real life than the pictures - there really are some lovely pieces on the website! 





Inside my parcel was this gorgeous little guy; the ceramic owl decoration which is the cutest little decoration I have ever seen. For some reason, I really like owls (although they scare me in real life) and I have quite a few bits and bobs around my room that fit in with the whole owl theme. I love the fact that this owl is completely white and it's the perfect size to sit on top of my drawers next to my trusty bhudda statue.

As much as I love all white in my room, I'm also partial to a bit of pink (as you can see from my bedding) and this pink butterfly photo frame is no exception. I actually like the butterfly inside too, so I won't be changing it to a different photograph - although you could if you wanted to of course. I love the damask/baroque patterned frame and I've seen these frames around a few places but not for this price (£4.99)!

I'm so pleased with these gorgeous items, they fit in with my room perfectly! I'm already compiling a list in my head of items to buy next! I'd definitely recommend checking out the website, it's so affordable and has such a good range of pieces - something to suit everyone! What's your favourite item? Do you collect homeware even without a house.... just me??? 

The lovely Kate has also provided me with a special discount code that will give any of my readers a lovely 10% off their order! All you need to do is enter the code 'LOVELYJUBBLY' at checkout
