Office Update

nester office

To the internet, my office looks like this. And mostly this. But it hasn’t looked that way in a long time. I sold the rug at the Big Sale in October and moved the mirror up to the boy’s room. The antelope head is part of the gallery wall. For the past few months my […]

Updated Arm Protectors

arm covers

I still love my white slipcovered sofa. But the one part that takes the worst beating is the arms. I’m hoping to re-slipcover the sofa soon, it’s been three years and many washes and lived on hard: it’s dingy. But this winter I tried out a little temporary fix and it worked even better than […]

Pretty Pictures vs. Liveable Rooms


jay jeffers I’m a little slow. Even though I like to think I’m really picky about what I pin on Pinterest I was surprised at some of the rooms I’ve pinned. It took me a year of Pinterest using to realize that just because I pinned a space didn’t mean I wanted to actually live […]

My Latest Thrift Find


I found this macrame plant hanger at the Goodwill for $3. In the winter I had different lanterns hanging from the hook, with a rope and pulley system and I loved it, but I wanted something different for spring. So took it down and just waited. I waited to see something–when I wasn’t looking for […]

My sister brought some senior girls from her small group to Charlotte on Saturday and I knew they we going to stop by our house and before I knew what was happening, I had streamers and crafts and iced coffees ready for their arrival. It’s a sickness, when I know girlie folk are coming I […]

Adding Bling to a Chandelier


Back before the Holidays I ran across a box of loose chandelier crystals. I purchased an ugly pendant light at a yard sale a few years ago, just for the crystals. I think I even took the crystals off right there at the trunk of our car and threw the fixture away in a trash […]

Decorating with Opposites:: Quirky Combinations of Shiny & Matte

glittered feather

New Year’s Eve (after eagerly working on my puzzle for a few hours) I texted Karrie and Reeve and Maria to see what they were wearing so I would know if I could get away with wearing my old yoga pants or if I should get fancy and put my new yoga pants on for […]

Whimsical Grandfather Clock

grandfather clock makeover

  I’ve wanted a big clock for a few years.  A couple of months ago I finally saw a simple grandfather-ish clock painted bright blue at an antique store,  I was SO excited, but it was already sold.  I snooped around and could see that it wasn’t an old clock, just a new, inexpensive clock […]
