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 waiting list at Sleepy Poet in Charlotte (the must-have, go-to spot for unique vintage home goods) Southern Nest was accepted. There are zillions of antique malls in the area…why hold out for Sleepy Poet? They are more than just an antique mall. The stuff you find there is really….well, frankly, it’s just good stuff. I was ecstatic to get the phone call informing me I had been accepted. But….there was more. They brought me in to meet with them and told me I had been chosen to take part in a design competition on WCCB News Rising Charlotte. I will be one of three designers in the “Wilson’s World” portion of the show. I will go on and talk about Southern Nest, show y’all my booth, and who knows what. I’m a little nervous.
Anyway, viewers go online and vote for the favorite designer. The winner gets a premium spot in Sleepy Poet. Eek! I am over the moon with excitement. The show airs Monday (Aug 4) morning from 6:00-9:00 on WCCB. If you’re local, please tune in!!
