Whilst Christmas time is for most people a happy and joyous time it can be a struggle for people who have lost loved ones. It can be a very lonely time and memories become ever more precious.
We are so excited to have become stockists for the beautiful products from Nkuku. They are a wonderful ethical company and here is their story.
The idea of Nkuku came from a year out from working life, travelling mainly through Africa and India. We wanted to find away to promote and develop the traditional skills of the artisans we met along the way
The shops and supermarkets are now starting to fill up with their key looks for Christmas decorating and a strong theme seems to be tartan and checks in beautiful warm shades of red.
This lovely quilt is the first one that Karen made following her first trip to New England. It is full of photographs, which unfortunately fade over time, but the colours of the quilt are lovely muted New England fall colours.
Here at A Little Bit of Nice we love all things New England, a touch of Scandinavian and a sprinkling of French style.
When sourcing products for our shop we need to work with designers who epitomise our style and have a similar colour palette to the fabrics we use in our designs.
You can always rely on Winchester for some beautiful doors and wreaths, plus a few surprises in the winter sunshine.
Christmas at Nymans gardens in West Sussex included a walk around the winter garden with some festive surprises. The gardens belong to the National Trust.
A Very Merry Christmas to everyone.
We have always done stockings, it's a family tradition, they have changed over the years and now tend to be filled with useful things like toiletries, a small supermarket voucher, and a number of other useful items

This year I visited Ikea in the beginning of november, I loved their wrapping paper and stripy cello tape so decided to go all red white and black this christmas with my wrapping, not forgetting the bakers twine I showed you in a previous post.
