I found this review of my site:
Inspire company, besides having a charming site, has some lovely gifty ideas. Although some of their things are a bit twee, who wouldn't like the toile notes or coral necklace. And I want the birthday ring!
"Although some of their things are a bit twee"??? As soon as I read this, and just after I shouted out to Rich "I'm a bit twee! Is that good or bad?!" I dashed over to the dictionary to find its meaning...
adjective Chiefly British affectedly dainty or quaint
[Origin: 1900–05; appar. reduced from tweet, mimicking child's pron. of sweet]
Another dictionary defined Twee as: Overly precious or nice.
Oh boy, I am soooo twee!
And I love this new (to me!) word. What a gift to have such a word added to my vocabulary. Is it a new word for you?
Oh and look for some twee new things next week!
Update: Thanks to Geraldine from England for setting us straight. Twee, my friends, is not such a great thing to be. I overlooked one meaning of the word "affectedly" in the definition of "twee" meaning feigned or artificially. I certainly don't want to be artificially sweet, dainty, or quaint. It's still a good word to have in my arsenal.
