Monday’s Moment

A single moment captured in a photograph. Candid and fleeting, this will always be a special snapshot in time…

We spent a very gentle Sunday morning, listening to music and taking candids of the children. Gorgeous light filtered in through our windows signalling a day bathed in song, togetherness and family. I see so much of their personalities in each of these photographs: inquisitive Reed, wide-eyed wonder Alina, and soulful Finnlagh.  Sometimes my heart is so full I feel as if it could burst …

In Niko & Nonnie news, if you are planning on ordering from the shop in time for Christmas (Dec. 25th), the deadline for all orders is December 1st. Custom orders are closed until after the holidays – my hands are quite full at the moment filling orders and handmaking Christmas presents! Please visit N&N on Etsy to order or send me a convo. In addition you can always send an email to or visit Niko & Nonnie on the web at

Getting ready for a sunny walk in the beautiful summer weather outside here today, followed by decking our own halls this evening.

Happy holidays await!

Holiday Shopping

Hello all!

Happy Martinmas! We are going to be celebrating St. Martin’s Day today, and I am excited to have yet another tradition to share with you in the coming days. We are also back from our holiday in NYC, cut way too short because of Hurricane Sandy. To say we had to make a run for it is an understatement! Our hearts are with our loved ones in New York and the tri-state area in the aftermath of this most terrible storm.

We are back home in Austin, taking in the sunshine and the delightfully warm autumn temperatures. Our darling middle child, Finnlagh, celebrated his 4th birthday recently as well…Four years old, heart of gold…

There are many photos and stories to share, but for the moment I thought I’d keep you in the loop about some shop updates.

New items have been listed in the shop and are ready for the holiday season! We are still accepting custom orders so if you have a custom order, please have it in by November 20th so we can guarantee shipping on time (to the best of our abilities). Please drop us a line either at, send a convo in the SHOP or visit our WEBSITE and click on the Contact link. The last day to order a ready-to-go item from the shop will be December 1st.

Here’s a little sampling of what you’ll find…

Looking forward to a busy holiday season!
