Notes from the Nest

by | From the Nest

I think I finally see a little light at the end of the tunnel as far as getting back into the school routine.  Whew; it’s tough!  However, my early fall home decor is coming together and a new little corner feels more cozy every day.  I’ve had a lot of fun starting to share my inspiration and ideas with you and there is a lot more to come!

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

Around Our Nest:

  • We started rehearsals this week for a very large, local Christmas production that our family is involved in each year.  Seem early?  Well, there’s only about 16 (or so?) rehearsals between now and the performance weekend.  Maybe just a little insight as to why some of us start thinking about Christmas so early!  Haha!
  • I’m adding some warmer tones for early fall here and there…even though the temps outside just aren’t giving up.  It’s SO HOT!  Then again, that is pretty normal for South Florida in August.  I guess I should just stop complaining about it, right?  Right!
  • My huge arched window from the World’s Longest Yard Sale is hung and looking gorgeous!  Some of you caught a peek of it a few times in my Instagram stories.  It was fun that you noticed it!  I’ll try to share more about that soon.
  • Honestly, the days have flown by this week.  They seem filled to the brim with teaching all day, coming home and helping our own kids, keeping up with home, and all the activities.  At the end of the day, though, I know I am so blessed.  I have been going to bed earlier and that is helping a little, I think!

Around the ‘Gram This Week:

  • I shared my number one tip for transitioning seasons…switching out your greenery and florals!  Did you catch that Instagram post?  I’m still just loving my free decor!  Go check it out HERE if you missed it!
  • My music room FINALLY is how I like it.  It took a lot of tries over several days.  You can see the process on THIS Instagram post.  However, I love how it ended up coming together!
  • You just can’t beat vintage home decor in my book.  However, mixing some new with the old can be incredibly helpful and create an extra cozy and curated look.  On THIS Instagram post, I shared my top 10 favorites from Amazon that I’m using this season.  I think you’ll love these too!

Around the Blog This Week:

  • THIS blog post was fun to put together, sharing my top 15 tips for transition from summer to fall home decor.  As I said in my post, I’m moving very slowly over here, enjoying some “in between” and early fall decorating.  No pumpkins or gourds out here yet.  However, the warmer tones and cozy layers are coming together and it will be easy to add in some of those really autumn-specific details as the season progresses.  And maybe as the temps drop a tad???
  • On this post, I shared the best Amazon fall decor finds of the season.  Some of them are maybe a bit unexpected but I’m loving them all!  I really love the top 10 that I shared on my Instagram post but there were just too many more I loved also!  Find them all HERE!
  • Friday Favorites this week was all about my early fall decorating favorites.  Honestly, the collage is just so gorgeous and gives me all the cozy, good feelings!  You can shop these early fall decor favorites easily from THIS post!

Around the Storefront This Week:

It’s been a fun week around the storefront.  I haven’t gotten around to sharing all of my new finds yet, but I’ve ordered some FUN stuff this week!  It’s getting me excited to start transitioning our home from the summer coastal look to a more everyday style.  Of course, as I said, I’m loving the cozy, early fall feelings that are appearing daily around here too!

Don’t worry.  There won’t be a pumpkin explosion here for quite awhile still!  Haha!

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

  1. THIS pampas grass wreath was a favorite from my Instagram stories this week.  I haven’t traditionally used a lot of pampas grass because I don’t like keeping up with the mess.  However, this is faux pampas and it is AMAZING!  I’m all about using what you have on hand to decorate but trust me, you NEED this wreath for some gorgeous texture and earthy tones.  I absolutely love it and may just end up ordering a second one!
  2. This amazing wood pear is also one my favorites!  It’s the perfect fruit for the season, and at a great price point!
  3. I love this reclaimed wood riser.…and so did so many of you!  It’s so versatile and pretty at the same time!
  4. Speaking of pampas grass, these arrangements look absolutely beautiful!  And right now they’re on sale, just in time for fall.  Hop on over & check them out!
  5. Last not least, these gorgeouse rustic candlestick holders are a big hit.  They fit so many occasions perfectly & you will love them, too!

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