Welcome

Hi! My name is Nicki and I live with my husband and our West Highland White terrier in a 17th Century stone cottage in the Northamptonshire countryside.

Having spent the last 18 years working in the publishing and banking industries respectively, I have recently taken the decision to change my direction in life.  The small stone barn in our garden has been refurbished to create a little workroom and I will use my 40th year to set up a small business from home, selling handmade and vintage-style home accessories.  I also like to write and I plan to spend my spare time writing the novel I've always dreamed of. 

I only buy and make products I truly love, and I favour a modern English country style using rustic and natural materials.  My mission in life is to have a cosy, comfortable and beautiful home where friends are always welcome.  Some of my favourite days are those spent at home, cooking, sewing and knitting whilst drinking too many cups of coffee.  I am a bit of a bookworm, too, and love a good murder mystery - the gorier the better!
