I started Nesting Place in November of 2007. I've always had a love affair with my house, ok, with all houses, and this blog is a place for you to come and find decorating encouragement, creative ideas, and be reminded that "It doesn't have to be perfect to be beautiful".

Tried & True Gift Guide for Homebodies ($25 and under)

I absolutely love gift guides and click on everyone I can find. The more niche-y and quirky, the more I like them! This year I put together a guide for homebodies, because it takes one (me) to know one (you?). Some of these things were on my list last year–why? Because that’s how good they are!

Let’s Make Laurels!

I’ve been drawing laurels on things since the dawn of time. Or since college. Whatever. When I realized my chalkboard handwriting looked nothing like Dana Tanamachi’s– laurels to the rescue. I made a fun little video last year with my awkward on-camera self and thought it would be worth sharing again because especially at Christm...
