The Nester

I am not a ‘bloggie’, I don’t surf the net reading different blogs all day (I might if I wasn’t chasing, cleaning up after, and cooking for a family of 6), but I cannot help but share and encourage everyone to read The Nesting Place http://www.thenester.com/ . I feel like I have “met” my soul sister…you know the wise one, the one you aspire to be. Her sense of decorating (on an extreme budget, I might add) is nothing short of amazing!!! I just can’t read enough…it is a good thing I don’t have a laptop, or I would probably strap it to me with that old Baby Bjorn going room-to-room trying to conjure her decorating skills.

Her mantra has given me permission, and validated, my long-time philosophy…she put it into words for me, and I thank her for this. IT DOESN’T HAVE TO BE PERFECT TO BE BEAUTIFUL…so simple and true. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, in my home I am the beholder (and the 5 other members of my little family). I am happy that those quirky little pieces of my decor speak to me every time I look at them. Like my Grandpa’s bottles, my Grannie’s clock, or the antique camera from my husband’s grandfather (he gave that to me because he knew I loved photography)…to some these might be a mismatched bunch of trash, but to me they are treasures…the kind you cannot replace or assign value to.

I have put a ‘badge’ from The Nester on my blog, making it super easy for you to find.

Today’s secret revealed…borrowed from The Nester: IT DOESN’T HAVE TO BE PERFECT TO BE BEAUTIFUL!

  1. So I had to ‘copy & paste’ what Nester said about this post over at my old home on blogger…I nearly peed my pants when I realized she had visited my blog!

    The Nester said…
    Natasha, this post was one of the most encouraging things I’ve ever read~I’m so thankful you are part of the Nesting Place community. I’m sure if we lived in the same neighborhood we’d be good friends. Until yard sale day and then I’d run faster than you and try to get the good stuff first.

    Thanks Nester, you are such an inspiration!
