Save the Date :: The Nest Fest!!

Nest Fest!


One of the dreams I had when we moved out here to this property involved banjo music, food trucks, a white barn full of comfy seats and lots of amazing, talented creative vendors with handmade, vintage, and lovely things for your home and life.

And this dream is finally coming true!!! We are hosting a Nest Fest!

Consider this your invitation to come hang out on our 13 acres #AtTheWhiteBarn in Midland, NC with fellow beauty hunters, we’ll eat yummy food and you can shop for beauty for your home and life from a selection of gloriously curated vendors!!

We’re having the Nest Fest on Saturday October 22nd, rain or shine 10ish-5ish (but the exact times aren’t quiet set in stone yet so don’t hold me to it!) Tickets will go on sale at a later date and will also be available at the door.

I’m so excited to share some of my FAVORITE makers, pickers, artists, farmers and shop owners with you!


This is just a tiny example of a few of our vendors–Created Beautifully & Angela Statzer and remember how I’ve been picking and collecting and beauty hunting like mad? It’s so I can have a huge booth full of pretties for your home at the Nest Fest!

The White Barn will be ready for you to hang out, sit and relax and enjoy the country surroundings. Vendors and food trucks will be sprinkled around the property. October is just lovely out here, here’s hoping for perfect weather!

The Barn :: Updated for Spring


If you’ve been hanging around here at Nesting Place for the past few years, you might already know that Chad & I and our three teenage boys moved from a rental house in the ‘burbs to a 13 acre neglected old sawmill in the country (yet still 25 minutes from Ikea!) outside Charlotte, NC. We’ve […]

The Makings of a Cozy Guest Bed

tiny office

Last week I shared how junky my office/guest house was getting, and wrote about my dream to make it more comfy for when we have guests. There were definitely some obstacles to making it cozy. Like the hard, cold concrete floors, the poorly insulated walls and the fact that there’s a fridge sitting right at […]
