Notes From the Nest

by | From the Nest

I started to write “Happy October and then realized, we are a week into October already.  Can we slow down time?  I love the month of October.  There are so many fun things happening as well as all the decor and home-related things that I love sharing with you in the fall too!  We will get in as much as we can, though!

I hope you enjoy the Notes From Our Nest this week!

Around Our Nest:

  • I won’t lie…the weekend trip LAST weekend was great.  The laundry on Monday wasn’t.  😂
  • The apples we picked, however, have made perfect snacks to enjoy all week long!
  • I finally found cornstalks and our porch is starting to look so cute!  Yes, I realize we are already into October, but I finally decorated my porch for fall!
  • Otherwise, it is full on Thanksgiving decor around our home!  Since I don’t really decorate for Halloween, other than some cute jack-o-lanterns, I figured, why not?!  It’s feeling so cozy and I’m having fun adding and tweaking here and there.
  • Between homework, tests, basketball games, music lessons, and fun with friends, our kiddos have kept as as busy as ever this week. I remind myself, though, that for all the grumbling I feel like doing about the busy-ness of this season, I am so thankful.  It is such a fun age and stage with our kids and I wouldn’t trade it for anything!

Around the ‘Gram This Week:

  • For Tablescape Tuesday, I’m sharing a different aspect of tablescape styling each week.  This week was all about colors to use for Thanksgiving.  If you missed my post, you can catch it HERE, along with a picture of one of my favorite Thanksgiving tables!
  • I finally got my kitchen all decorated for fall and Thanksgiving!  You can get a little kitchen tour HERE if you’re looking for some functional and easy ideas to give a cozy, fall style to your own kitchen.
  • Friday Favorites was all about favorite Thanksgiving decor styles.  It may seem a ways off, but stores are already starting to sell out of Thanksgiving items.  It’s definitely a good time to get your tables and decor planned.  Check out THESE FAVORITES for some ideas!

Around the Blog This Week:

  • THIS blog post goes into detail about 5 things I enjoy doing around our home in order to try and create a really welcoming, calm, and happy home environment for my family.  Of course, there are many more things that could be added, but this is a good list to get started with.   Hopefully it provides some inspiration for you as well!
  • Even though the World’s Longest Yard Sale 2023 has ended, save THIS blog post for details and start making plans now to go next year!  It is SO MUCH FUN!

Around the Storefront This Week:

My storefront is loaded with good stuff right now.  I’ve been curating some gorgeous pieces for fall and Thanksgiving.  At the same time, though, there are some great Christmas things being added also.  You can check out my curated collections at the top of my storefront, HERE!

Amazon Prime Big Deal Days are coming up this next week.  I’ll be sharing favorites over on my IG stories and also updating the idea list on my storefront over the two days.  Stay tuned for that.  As always, I can’t thank you enough for shopping my storefront.  It is convenient for you and may not seem like a big deal.  However, it makes all the difference for our small business at Robyn’s French Nest.  THANK YOU!

Here are some of the top sellers over on my storefront this week:

  1.  This set of deer taper holders is perfect for the season.  My favorite AND your favorite!
  2.  Speaking of tapers, THESE are still at the top of the list.  I love them!
  3.  This autumn garland looks amazing on my white mantel!  It’s so pretty & versatile!
  4.  Table runners this beautiful make me happy!
  5.  These waterproof candles come with a remote and are perfect for the long evenings of Fall!

You can check this list on my storefront.  I update it daily with favorite deals that I think you’ll love too!

Coming Up This Week Around the Nest:

Here are a few things I have planned for the upcoming week.  I am excited to share and appreciate you following along!

  1. Amazon Prime Big Deal Days are coming!  Stay tuned Tuesday and Wednesday this week to my stories and Amazon storefront!  If there is anything in particular you’re hoping to find, leave me a list in the comments and I’ll do my best to help you find the best deal!
  2.  Tablescape Tuesday is going to be all about convenient and easy accessories!  I’m going to be sharing 19 of my favorite things that I personally own and use for fall and Thanksgiving tablescape styling.  They are all from Amazon and are so simple to decorate with!
  3. Want to see how I styled that huge demijohn from our weekend trip to North Carolina?  Stay tuned for an easy centerpiece this week too!
  4. Friday Favorites will be all about cozy neutrals that you can get now and use through the entire winter.  Of course, I am going to throw in a few fall specific pieces because it is such a fun season.  However, these are all quick and easy for you to use in your own home decor!
