Enter to win this giveaway!

Kikkerland LET Light Imperial Chandelier
available from

While many have begun the hunt for holiday deals on must-have items, I am happy to offer a special of my own ... this completely unique mini-chandelier (it is about the height of a wine glass) that will be given away* to one of my lucky readers courtesy of
Add light and sparkle to any small area with this dazzling and artful object created by designer, Chris Collicott. Just 3 AA batteries and it is good to go (optional adapter is available).

I can picture using this item to decorate for the holiday season ... maybe hanging one at each window instead of the traditional plug-in candle? Or it could be equally pretty hanging over a writing desk, bedside table or in a kids room.
Wherever it ends up, it is sure to generate conversation and a smile or two! And isn’t that what the holidays are all about?


To enter to win, all you have to do is post a quick note on the comments section of my blog, sharing your favorite holiday tradition, and I will draw one name from the posts that I receive.
While you are contemplating your favorite tradition, here are a few iconic design items that I discovered on that would make anyone smile ...

This chair from Vitra looks just like a snowflake to me! How pretty a bunch of these would be around a well-dressed holiday table.

Or for a little one in your life, this
Rocking Crocodile from Wonderworld
looks like it would be adorably fun ...

  1. Beautiful items, I love the chandelier!

    My favorite holiday tradition is going to a different family member's house every Christmas Eve for dinner and what we call "One Christmas present" night where everyone gets to open one present. It's so much fun and brings the family together for Christmas.

  2. Congratulations goes to Scientific Housewife! You are the winner of the Kikkerland LET Light Imperial Chandelier giveaway! Please contact me by email to claim your prize :)
    PS We share the same Christmas Eve holiday tradition ... it is one of my favorites, too!
