Niki's- Knacks!


Knick-knacks, bits n’ bobs, bits & pieces, this and that, tat, effects,

treasures, trinkets, souvenirs, ornaments, worldly goods,

white elephant, keepsakes, mementos, assets,

things, odds & ends, belongings, clobber, gear, chattels,

plunder, pickings, spoils, stash, swag, loot,

collectables, bric-a-brac, objet d’art, hoard, booty,

curios, decorations, novelties, jumble, junk,

silly scraps, riches, possessions, valuables, stuff, clutter......

Whatever you would call them....They're little bits of nonsense that make me happy!
Hope you're having a great week,
Niki x

  9. I want to come and live in your house!!! What lovely lovely things you have. Those little dogs hiding in the corner of the shelf, sweet.
    Christine is a lovely sweetie isnt she, she has a very old fashioned gentle lady air about her. Maybe you will get down here one day and visit her shop. Jane xx

  10. Hi Niki

    I never realised there were so many nouns for all your goodies. A rose by any other name ...

  11. I think you should compose a dictionary of everything "vintage" and include your lovely photos, Niki (along with your amazing list of definitions)!

  12. What a beautiful collection of vintage pretties. They look wonderful all jumbled together on your shelves. Having so many pretty things to look at and admire each day would make me very happy as well. Have a great day!!

  15. Goodness me - I just blinked and I've missed three scrummy posts! Thank goodness for google reader!!
    My favourite word for these things is 'trifle'. At our county museum they have a lot of Lowestoft Porcelain and the Twining's Teapot collection (one of my fave places to kill time when I'm in the city!). One of the recurring scripts on souvenier porcelain is "A Trifle from..." as in "A trifle from Lowestoft". I think it's a great shame this word has been lost to a pudding - albeit one of my favourite puddings! t.xx
