If I could, I would... live here in this pretty cottage....
But it isn't for sale, ( or at least not that I know of, lol ) and it was once the beautiful shop of Niki Fretwell.
Just yesterday I received her beautiful new book in the mail...Living with Nostalgia...I know all of you have probably seen so many decorating books and books with Inspiring pictures, but I have never seen a book packed with so much beauty before! It truly is one of the most gorgeous books I've opened. My photos of just a smidgen of it, are not doing it proper justice! so if you'd like a better peek go here....Living with Nostalgia ... you can see a few more photos and also order it from there too. This is a rare Gem of a book and it has the most photographs I've ever seen in any book like it! Niki has a way with putting Vignettes together and photographing homes that is so natural and will make any cottage lover in awe.....!
.... and..... did I mention "ideas" too?! she has crafting ideas, and full explanations of how to get the perfect cottage look! and stories too... I could go on and on...excuse the flash mark, that's me, I'm aiming to better my photography skills, but as you can see, I'm not there yet :)
She features her home in it also and it's as sweet as Cottage can get! The other homes she features are purely stunning and exude this type of warmth I dream to achieve!
I am going to savor this book for sure. Last night I sat for hours , just absorbing every photo and word.
Thank you Niki for bringing us such Beauty...
You can visit Niki at Nostalgia at the Stone House ( her blog ) and also at her website , where she sells her "pretties"...... Thank you so much for all your comments, I read each and every one and try and respond to all of you. Isn't blogging so much fun?! I hope you all have a wonderful week!!
