{Point A La Ligne the Rolls Royce of Candles}


Roses are all about romance; for kindling the flame of love!
 The flame of the most romantic candles in the world: Point à la Ligne. See page 12 for Christmas rose candle.
For more than 30 years Point A La Ligne has the reputation for being the Rolls Royce of Candles.
.

On the left you see my Point à la Ligne red Christmas rose floating candle. 
 When we lived and worked, in the Province of Treviso, in the little town of Cornuda/Italy, I loved the Gift shop that was around the corner. 
That's where I found this treasure, a large tray made out of silk faille in a Lucite embedment. 
It is so romantic!
The crystal rose is from Swarovski and the other silver rose is a brooch; both from my private collection.


A most romantic duo; both from Italy...
The solid silver rose from Giovanni Raspini, Italy and available at my Mariette's Back to Basics on line boutique. Only one available; rest is SOLD.
The tray is not for sale - no way!
Sorry, sold out...

  1. Liebe Mariette!
    Zunächst möchte ich Dir einmal das Kompliment machen, daß Du so toll Deutsch kannst!! Gratuliere! Ich kann nur mit Englisch und noch etwas Französisch dienen...
    Und dann vielen Dank für Deine lieben Kommentare!! Dank auch für den Glückwunsch zum Bloggeburtstag und daß Dir die "Qualität" gefällt!
    Deine Infos bzgl. der Orchideen (Singapur) habe ich interessiert gelesen. Ja, das mag sein, daß die Orchideen so in Massen in der Natur noch viel schöner sind. So langsam habe ich mich auch an Orchideen gewöhnt, aber sie gehören nicht zu meinen Lieblingsblumen :-)
    So, Dir kann ich ja noch einen schönen Tag wünschen, ich selbst geh jetzt gleich ins Bett! Hier ist es inzwischen recht herbstlich.
    Viele liebe Grüße aus Hamburg von Ann

  3. Hallo Mariette,
    ich verstehe dass das Tablett nicht zu Kaufen ist.
    Von so einem Schmuckstück würde ich mich auch nicht trennen, es sieht wunderschön aus.
    Geanu wie Deine anderen Rosen.
    Das nennt man wohl Rosenzauber.

    Ganz liebe Grüße
    Beate

  4. ja,liebe mariette, ich kann gut verstehen, dass dir im moment die zeit unter den nägeln wegläuft. tausendunddrei dinge sind noch zu erledigen, einzukaufen, abzuarbeiten. und ständig kommen neue hinzu, weil dir noch etwas einfällt, oder?

    am wochenende kommen deine freunde, stimmts? und es ist schon mittwoch. gefühlt stehen sie also schon vor der tür. ich freue mich einerseits sehr für dich, dass du besuch aus der "heimat" bekommst und andererseits fühle ich mit dir. ich kann mir soooo gut vorstellen, dass du es ganz besonders schön machen möchtest.

    nimm dir trotz aller hektik und arbeit zwischendurch ein paar minuten zeit und mach eine kurze pause! ;)

    ganz liebe grüße aus der Dusche "Uruguay" (es regnet und regnet und regnet...)

  5. Hoi Mariette,

    Ik moet je eerlijkheidshalve zeggen dat ik het merk kaarsen niet ken, maar ik ga zometeen een kijkje nemen op hun website. Je dienblad uit Italie is prachtig. Ik zou het zo kunnen hebben gekocht!!

    Wat heb jij trouwens in veel plaatsen over de wereld gewoond. Al die ervaringen die je hebt opgedaan....Zo bijzonder! Zelf ben ik nog nooit buiten Europa geweest, maar dat komt nog wel een keer.

    Ik wens je een fijne dag!

    Lieve groet, Madelief

  6. Liebe Mariette,

    es ist wirklich sehr romantisch, was du uns hier zeigst. Ich kann nicht sagen, welche der vielen Rosen mir besser gefällt. Das Tablett ist ein Traum.
    Ja, morgen ist es soweit, dann kommen eure Freunde zu Besuch. Ich glaube dir gern, dass du sehr viel zu tun hast, weil noch so viele Dinge erledigt werden müssen. Ich wünsche dir jedoch von Herzen eine wunderschöne Zeit mit euren Freunden. Genieße es und mache dir nicht so viel Stress.

    Sehr liebe Grüße schickt dir Elvira aus Deutschland
