Thought for the Day

"It is better to fail in originality than to succeed in imitation." - Herman Melville


  1. That's brilliant!
    I've been thinking about doing a post on the same lines (for various reasons!)...but now I need not... as yours says it all!!

  2. I like that. We seem to live in a world of imitatators at the moment and personally I prefer originality than following the flock.

    Hi Niki, I love the quote. I always find quotes like this so inspirational and I like to read a different one every day. I have to say how much I love your garden house. The colours are wonderful and the decor is mouth watering! I really love the way you added the border to the shelves of the cupboard, it really adds a lovely touch. Excellent work to you both!

  4. That is so true, what a great quots, words to love by...

  5. Love this thought and the pic!

  6. I quite agree! I love your dolls and those dresses are so fantastic. Great idea. Bet they get snapped up!

  7. Hello Niki
    I love the quote, the author, and the image chosen. Enjoy your weekend! Hope you find some time to relax in your garden house! xx

  8. Fantastic quote. Unfortunately there is far too much imitation out there at the moment. I think however that you definitely succeed on originality. Those latest dolls are beautiful and I only wish I had the pennies to buy one.

  9. what a great quote, I love it.

  10. How very profound Niki - some people say things so well don't they?
    I love the cottage picture - I want to live there!


  11. Ah... your timing is immaculate Niki...
    My thoughts have been very much in the same groove recently..

    Well said that woman!!!!!

  13. Hello Niki

    I have been catching up with all sorts including blogging and have seen your post of your STUNNING summer house. You must want to spend your whole time there. You have arranged it so beautifully, very tastefully done!I could imagine Country Living Magazine or BBC Homes & Antiques magazine wanting to have such a summer house featured in their magazines. Enjoy it!
    Have a great weekend!
