Fresh Vintage Teacup Candles
Wondering what to give your loved one for V-Day, or just thinking of treating yourself? We've just added these lovely new vintage teacup candles to our online shop. Made by a new supplier Clara Bows, these candles are gorgeous, glamorous and eco friendly.
Each one of her candles is unique in individually sourced vintage crockery or glassware. Lovingly hand poured using 100% natural soy wax from sustainable sources. She uses only the highest quality fragrance, essential oils and wicks. Most importantly, they smell of delicious sugary buttery shortbread or tea!
Once your candle is finished you only need to rinse it out with warm soapy water and then you’re left with this lovely tea trio of cup, saucer and plate to use for an afternoon tea.
Every candle comes beautifully boxed and wrapped in tissue paper all tied up with a bow, and the prices all include post and packing.

Lustrous Lingerie for Valentine's
Enamore has created this delightful new range of lingerie for Valentine's Day 2009 and you can buy it from our Eco Chic Boutique.
Featured in February's You & Your Wedding Magazine, Bamboo Parfait is made from a lustrous black bamboo satin trimmed with icing pink lace and candy pink bows. The five piece range includes a bias cut camisole and nightie, ruffle shorts, soft bra and matching garter.
And in fine fettle after a spell away from the computer, the winter weather and the telephones.
We have to admit to having flown to South Africa for a spell of sunshine, to get away from it all, catch up with family and friends and also to meet some like minded people over there. We've been working non stop since the first GreenUnion seed was planted nearly 3 years ago and we've offset our trip by planting trees in South Africa. We're also about to embark on an exciting plan to collaborate with a great charity there called Trees for Schools.
Now we're back we have heaps of great stuff going on and we'll be keeping you in the picture as the weeks go by.
Happy New Year to all our readers and happy planning for those getting married in 2009!
