My beloved Seda France Classic Toile Pagoda Candles are on sale this weekend with free shipping and a free travel tin. With their exquisite fragrance, long burn time, and wonderful Chinoiserie toile pagoda packaging, these are a must for the Chinoiserie lover on your list. My signature scent is the Japanese Quince.

A Happy Thanksgiving to everyone. I hope your Thanksgiving table will include a touch of Chinoiserie. Here for inspiration is Joe Nye's antique Chinoiserie pedestal table set with Mottahedeh Blue Canton and Juliska bamboo flatware.

For years I have admired Mary McDonald's fabulous pagoda lamps pictured below. While cruising Horchow last week during one of their 30% off everything sales, I spotted this beauty now happily ensconced in my pagoda bedroom. It features an antiqued mirror base, hand-applied silver leaf, and a silk dupioni shade.
