Home | Dartington Daisy Flower Bottle


Hello Lovelies! Fresh flowers are definitely one of the nicest things in the world, especially when they come from your own garden (like these lovely ones above!). My mum is a keen gardener so I've always been surrounded by them, which probably explains my slight obsession with florals *cough* my blog theme *cough*. But really who doesn't love fresh flowers?



This lovely Daisy Flower Bottle (£47.00)* is from Dartington Crystal, a company that has been making handmade items from crystal and glass in the UK since 1967. It's handmade out of a beautiful turquoise crystal with a pretty daisy design pressed onto it. One of the loveliest things about this vase is the crystal it's made out of. When light shines through it, it just looks so beautiful. In an ideal world, I would have demonstrated this with sunlight but seeing as there's virtually no natural light at the moment, I had to shine a light through the vase to show this ('professional blogging' at it's finest). The colour is also amazing, as the vivid turquoise blue really makes flowers pop. 


Funnily enough, Dartington is a brand I've known for years. When I stumbled across them, I knew they seemed vaguely familiar but I couldn't quite put my finger on why until my mum told me it was a brand she really loves, and has been buying from for years. There's actually a few pieces from them in our house, and I didn't even realise! So if you don't trust this Nightingale's opinion, you can count on my much wiser mother's.

Thank you for reading lovelies! Are you a fan of flowers too? Let me know in the comment section below!
