Elm Design = Handmade with love...


Hot out of the box! These gorgeous ceramics are the latest addition to Nest...The "not so perfect" pieces have been moulded with love in the hands of the very clever Peta Misbrener of Elm Design. The images are from a collection of her own designs and I must say I'm in love with this little bunny!

Twinkle, twinkle.......

How beautiful would it be to sit back and have little pots of candle light flickering above you like stars.....Currently in Nest I have glass hanging tea-light holders that would enable you to create such an effect. Use them with candles or as hanging vases and your space could be as special as the one pictured above....

Music Love

Angus & Julia Stone
I am ABSOLUTELY in love with the soulful music of creative siblings above, Angus & Julia Stone. I have been playing their albums constantly in Nest since discovering them as their soft, laid-back tunes are the perfect backdrop for my eclectic little store.
But anyway,....how beautiful is this....I just had a gorgeous girl come into the shop and as I wrapped her purchase we were talking. She told of how she had been telling all her friends that they must come and visit Nest...When they had asked her how to describe my store she answered with.."Its the visual experience of listening to Angus & Julia Stone". They had actually all had a giggle when they walked in and heard the music that was playing!
To me this is the loveliest thing anyone has ever said about my store. I wish to create a whole experience from the moment you walk through the door and to hear a comment like that it reassures me that I'm on the right track...
Now.... you MUST go and checkout the Angus & Julia Stone website. It is so, so cute!! One day if I have website for Nest I would like it to be something just like this.......
