SEAWICKS SOY candles are hand poured on the coast of Maine. Each fragrance has been selected to invoke memories of
times shared with family and friends. From the scents of lilacs hugging our summer cottages to 5' o clock happy hour on the front porch.

Six years ago my husband and I purchased a 1920's cottage (Beneath the Pines) in the small town of Edgecomb, Maine; a town where time seems to stand still.  With glimpses of the water, the sound of lobster boats pulling their traps and the scent of sea, we knew we finally found our home.  

The seasons changed and winter came. Frozen pipes and power outages became normal.  During those long winter nights, we sat by the flickering light and reminisced of summers passed.  We burned a lot of candles that winter but longed for the scent of the coast.

With that in mind, "SEAWICKS" was born.  Our scents are a direct reflection of life on the coast. We take pride in pouring all of our candles by hand.  We currently offer six scents and will be adding another four to the line in Fall.

French Delight

Thank god its Friday I hear you all saying, well I couldn't agree more. The closer Christmas draws upon us the busier our lives seem to excelate. 
The humidity here is making things uncomfortable and the more rain we seem to get the steamier things become. 
But we wouldn't have it any other way would we?

Just a few pics of the lovely french light grey drawers I made over through the week.  Gorgeous scrolls on top and finished off with some sweet little round crystal knobs. 

Agapanthus from the garden in this huge vintage jar I found whilst thrifting. 

How beautiful are the filigree metal french chairs. 

Enjoy your weekend.

Country or Beachy Wardrobe

I would describe this wardrobe as Beachy or Country as I could see it in either styles of decorating.  Sometimes when you buy pieces to make over you have to sleep on it for a few nights until you can decide on the look your wanting to achieve. This was not the case with this piece. As soon as I saw it I knew exactly how it would end up looking and thankfully this is it. 
Painted white panels are lots of sanding so the timber pops through. 

Forgot to take a photo of the inside but it has hanging on the left and heaps of drawers of the right, a very functional piece.  

A new lamp shade I re-covered. 

Round crystal knobs to replace the old metal pulls. 

These candle holders have the perfect amount of rust on them. 

Would suit any part of the home, could be used in the bedroom, laundry, kitchen or even holding all your crafts.

Industrial Vibe Happening Around Here

This post it all about these wonderful Industrial Vintage Pieces I have collected these last couple of weeks. 
You will not help but notice this huge Industrial Light Fitting. It's perfect because it has an amazing long lead and can be hung on the ceiling in any room, just plugs in, no wiring necessary. 
Gorgeous old silky oak desk I made over this week teamed up with a metal vintage office chair. 

The old map of Australia has been sitting in my shed for years. I had the old frame from a recent deceased estate so I played around with it this morning and this was what I came up with. 

The yellow fan was being sold at a recent fete for $1. I have never used yellow in my home but today is a first.  

Another amazing old vintage standard light that is extremely heavy and well made.  I was really excited when I found this piece. 

I actually got the sewing machine out this week and made myself up some new cushions. Lots of ticking and blues and whites.

Gorgeous old slats on top all re-stained and waxed. 

The desk in numbered and would have been made locally in Brisbane at some point. 

The desk and vintage chair are both available to purchase contact me here if your interested.
