My neighborhood has a Facebook page and this little beauty popped up with a “For Sale” listing on the post. I had to have it. Another neighbor clearly thought the same thing and after a little persuasion, I got my hands on it. (I couldn’t give this one up.) I wasn’t crazy about the color, [...]

My Rule of Five

My Rule of Five

Organization has become the hardest thing for me to manage after becoming a mother.  I was always an organized person.  I found an organized room calmed me.  Then I had B and it all hit the fan.  I find food wrappers in the car, shoes in the bathtub, and random scribbles of marker everywhere.  My [...]

They’re Living in High Cotton

They’re Living in High Cotton

IMG_0220

It’s a Southern term.  “Living in high cotton,” that is.  Cotton is such a staple of Southern history…sadly, I remember tuning out many a middle school history lesson regarding the importance of cotton in the South.  It’s funny…now as an adult, I have a genuine obsession with raw, natural cotton stems.  They are GORGEOUS to decorate with and [...]

I was lucky enough to be asked by the North Mecklenburg Women’s Club to decorate a table for the ‘Over the Tabletop’ event at the Peninsula Country Club. I was so excited to be able to participate.  I deliberated over my theme for quite a while, finally choosing to design ‘A Bridal Luncheon for a [...]

I look forward to holding my Twelve Monograms of Christmas contest every year. Why?  Just when I think I have seen it all, someone emails a photo of how they have decorated with their monogram and we all are taken aback. I am inspired by the talent and creativity of my customers. Seeing the 2014 [...]

A beautiful old piece…I just couldn’t give this one up.

I know I always say every piece of furniture is my favorite. But a recent piece I found…oh, it is just fabulous. I went to my local ReStore on a Tuesday (I try to pop in as much as I can on Tuesdays, as that’s when they put all of the new stuff out. I [...]

My life.

My life.

It’s been so stinking long since I have been here, I barely know where to start.  I want to give a very glamorous reason as to why I have been sparse with my writing, but I haven’t got one.  I have simply been too flipping tired. My normal day consists of being woken to up [...]

  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 [...]

The Sonesta Resort in Hilton Head, SC-A Definite Yes!

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 [...]
