PS Don't forget the giveaway! Only days to go! Oh and by the way, I've decided that Nest will be open Friday, Burnie Show day....Come see me !:)

Hand Stitched with Love.....

Brenda Schmitt (Red Stitch Designs) is the clever,CLEVER lady responsible for these beautiful creations. I must say I have always, had a love affair with pears. I can recall my step son commenting on, "how many pears does one need?" :)...Only the other day I purchased a beautiful red stone heart from my friend David at "The Brown Dog, Stanley" and Thomas, in the back seat as I showed the kids, smiled as he said, "I'm surprised it's not a pear!"...So, OK....I know that I love pears!!.......And especially pears that say LOVE.....

... or pears stating the obvious!,

...and these cute little brooches (also Brenda's!)... A very sweet accessory for young and old...

with lots of delicious colours to choose from...

Brenda is a very talented needle worker and has been lovely to work with..She is always quick and willing to fulfill my requests...Thank you Brenda :)... I'm also looking forward to having some of Brenda's Christmas goodies in store soon...As scary as that sounds it seems to be fast approaching...xx

New "Nancybird" in Store Now!!

Come in and check out the NEW Spring/Summer Range in store now!!! These stunning bags and wallets are designed by Melbourne designer Emily Wright. They truly are wearable art!
Emily only uses the finest of Italian leather, as the quality and their environmental standards are higher than any other leather producing country. The outer fabrics are either hand screen printed or digitally printed- all locally produced in Melbourne.

Nancybird bags are so unique, classically designed and will leave people behind you seething with "bag envy"....:)

The pictures above are of what's left of the Winter range, so if you see something that you like hurry in as they will soon go!!
And the thing I like best of all is that the ranges are never repeated.....oh dear, maybe I will keep that black one....!

'Notions' for Spring

Before NEST was born, I dreamed of having my own little store. I kept an "Ideas" book and every thought or idea I ever had was quickly noted....It was during a visit to Hobart one weekend that I first spied the gorgeous brooches of talented local, Rosalie Malham..I immediately fell in love (her packaging in itself is divine!) and of course her name was promptly added to my eclectic list....

Rosie has just put together her latest gorgeous range to celebrate the coming of spring!

As MY way of celebrating the coming of Spring, for the month of September, every person who spends over $50 will receive one of Rosie's beautiful brooches....Please, spread the word as I would love every one to be able to have a little piece of "Notions"......
