i’ve started a board called Objects over on good ol’ pinterest, which is basically just an extended version of nice things. there will probably be plenty of things on there that i might not get to feature on the blog, so if you’re into more nice things than you can shake a stick at then please do follow.

Nice Things, Birthday Edition

birthday

i don’t make birthday wish lists in real life, and i don’t particularly like being asked what i want for my birthday. i’m a firm believer in giving someone a gift that you really want them to have, doesn’t matter how big or small it is… or how weird it may be (a basket of cheese, for example, would be a great gift in my opinion). but since it’s my birthday on sunday i thought why not make an imaginary wish list in the form of a nice things post? why not, i say! perhaps it’s your birthday soon, in which case you can send this post to your loved ones for some splendid gift ideas. happy birthday september babies.
