Gorgeous tealight houses

My three little tealight houses arrived and are truely stunning! They bring such ambiance to the room. I had only ever seen similar houses while travelling in Europe. They were definitely a good purchase, I am so happy Calico Ceramics popped up on my feed, such unique products!

So pretty

Such a pretty little light, smaller than I thought but it is so beautiful!

Kerri De Sousa

I found the tea lights unique and special and thank you for the added surprise 😉

Tiffany Hulley-Miller

I absolutely love your products and the little houses are gorgeous - i was, however under the impression that i would get 3 tea light houses, as per the picture advertised - Not a huge crisis and obviously an error on my side but just for future it would be helpful to perhaps have a *only one tea light for that price or something like that :) Unless i completely missed it. Would have preferred to order a set of 3 as in the picture :)
