The Blog that started it all for me....


The Nesting Place, written by The Nester herself, is the very first blog that I ever became obsessed with read on a daily basis. Her motto "It doesn't have to be perfect to be beautiful", or "IDHTBPTBB", is music to my ears (err, eyes), because as we all know, this Slacker Mama is far from perfect!

Her style, her taste, her window mistreatments, her entire decorating philosophy has always had me coming back for more and more! Well, today there is more.

A LOT more!

Today, The Nester has officially released her first E-Book.


Free? Yes, FREE! No hidden taxes, no sneaky shipping and handling charges, no selling your first born to get all this Nester-inspired goodness! All you have to do is go HERE and give The Nester your name and e-mail addy (Neither will be sold!) and viola! FREE E-BOOK!

It's really easy! It literally took me about 2 minutes to be sitting here, drooling over reading Nester's decorating goodness!

Oh, and because she is such a generous person, there is also a FREE companion guide...

Remodeling Guy's The Power of Remodeling: How Remodeling Your Home Can Change Your Life.

What? You are still here? RUN quickly over to The Nesting Place and sign up now!


Oh, and don't forget..... Barb over at Grits and Glamour is hosting a Porch and Patio Party tomorrow!

So get out your brooms, fill-up those flower pots, dust off all that pollen, and fluff-up those chair cushions and show us your Porches and Patios!

Unfortunately, my bum feet (which are much better, by the way) and 5 straight days of rain, have postponed my outdoor activities for a while. SO, I wasn't able to get finished with my front porch makeover! :o( I can't wait to see everyone elses, though!

Who knows, I may completely change my plans after seeing everyone else's ideas!



  1. AWESOME!! thanks for passing that along!

    i'm not home to post my patio pics... and not much to show anyway! hehe we haven't touched the back of the house yet!! not even a bloom in a pot yet! :P

  2. Thanks for posting that. I'll have to check it out.

  3. You had me at FREE. LOL

    Thanks for sharing - it really is a great blog. Can't wait to get her e-Book.

  4. Glad your sore tootsie is feeling better!

    I'm anxious to see everyone porch and patio. I won't be showing you mine cause I packed away all the cushions and I haven't found them yet. I just HATE IT when I do that!! Actually it gets so hot here that we can't even use our porches and patio, still they're fun to decorate and look at from inside our airconditioned homes.

  5. Great minds think alike. I follow the Nesting Place also and adore her spirit.

  6. ASM! I'm so glad you like me! I mean, my ebook! What a great post, my favorite one of yours, I think I might print it out and frame it.

    watch out for those tornadoes!
