  It all started with furniture.     My passion lies in refinishing furniture and repurposing found objects to create a classy, Southern design.  That’s how Charming Little Nest first started and as Southern Nest evolved from the blog, furniture took a backseat.  Well, the time has come.  After two years-TWO YEARS-of being on the [...]

Ok, for starters, I will tell you I have gone to the SAME hotel in Hilton Head since I was 8 years old.  I grew up going there and have gone there with my own little family.  This year, my husband booked our trip at a new location-the Sonesta Resort.  I was nervous about going [...]

We just returned from a week in Hilton Head, SC.  It was wonderful and frankly, I have never needed a vacation more.  This time was especially fun, as some of our close friends also went.  They rented a house and we stayed at The Sonesta (which I will fill y’all in on later…a definite hot spot [...]

It’s hot. I know it’s not just hot here in NC…but our air conditioner decided to check out. Womp womp. I spent the day last Friday stuck at home while ‘Mike the repair man’ tried to figure out the issue. (Bonus-he took care of two wasps that snuck into our house. Cool air and a [...]

This is what happens, you see.  When you try to run a business with tiny children, time flies.  Everything else  becomes…impossible to keep up with.  One minute ago I was pregnant with Georgia and carrying Briggs around.  Now, G has one tiny tooth popping through and B is picking out his backpack for preschool and [...]

The ReStore ReStyle 2014 event is done and I had so much fun.  I am still so worn out from the chaos of the past two weeks.  I have done so many projects my head is spinning.  And now I want to break it all down for ya.  First off, here is the final product.  [...]

A Bigger Reason

For two weeks now, my hands have been covered in paint and glue.  I have small cuts all over my hands from yanking frames apart.  Yesterday my mother-in-law asked me where the huge bruise on my arm came from and I hadn’t even noticed it.  And frankly, if someone even brings one white plate within 50 [...]

What the heck is SweetHoney?

What the heck is SweetHoney?

Just when I thought I had shopping all figured out, I had a little girl. There is the endless ‘problem’ of seeing too many cute things and then trying to resist the urge to buy another ruffle-covered-butt-bubble. Pretty simple, right? Then I discovered this little Facebook page called SweetHoney.  (I use the term ‘little’ loosely.)  [...]

When I love something, I tend to obsess over it.  Here is an (extremely random) list of my “of-the-moment” favorites: Sequin Wine I am a red wine kinda gal.  I love it and rarely ever order white…until I discovered this little gem.  I’m not going to lie, I bought it because the bottle was cute.  But when [...]

For years I have been salivating over the idea of purchasing a vintage dress form.  At the going rate of $500, I simply couldn’t bring myself to do it.  Seriously though…look at these pictures!  Aren’t they gorgeous?  A vintage dress form has the ability to add an air of chic sophistication to a room.  I. HAD. TO. HAVE. ONE. I was [...]
