A bit of NOSTALGIC shopping

Here are some beautiful things which I recently purchased from Niki - Nostalgia at the Stone House

I am so pleased to have acquired this mirror and am trying to decide which room it will go in. It's more than likely going to end up in our bedroom but we shall have to see!

When I saw this cottage garden set, I knew I had to have it! The pictures are so beautiful, they capture mellow and idyllic cottage scenes. The bonus is that this pretty vintage brooch came with the set, I look forward to wearing it.

What I like about Niki's gift sets is that they are always so beautifully presented.

The 2009 calendar is full of stunning pictures, so is the 2010 one! It is a MUST HAVE!

If you haven't bought yours yet, I wouldn't leave it too here to go to Niki's online shop.

A bientôt!

Isabelle how could you? The temptation is going to drive me crazy! I just bought a lovely brooch cushion from Niki and truly it was even more beautiful when it arrived safely in Australia than I had expected. The cottage garden set is divine with that lovely brooch. Niki is such a wonderful talent. When are you going to start your shop Isabelle? I am going to bed now and dream about Niki's lovely things. xx

I see we're kindred spirits when it comes to kitties! ;) The kitty we adopted had been at the shelter the longest, and they didn't know why (hubby and I figure it was because she was waiting for us)! An older gent and his wife adopted four cats there within the past several months (two sets each of a brother/sister) and two of them were all black! He told me the cats outnumber the people in his home now!

What glorious finds!!! I'm so excited for you. Wow--they're just lovely. Thank you for sharing them with the rest of us!

The floral picture you've got in the lounge is gorgeous.

I love your white painted floors. I always want to do it, but think it might be an awful job to do with a small dog trotting about. Hope you didn't get stuck in the corner. I painted myself into the middle of a black floor once.

Julie said...

Niki's things are just gorgeous aren't they? Thanks for sharing, must go and check out those calendars they look lovely (and much more tasteful than the naked rugby players that have 'graced' our wall this year!
