A Bridal Luncheon for a Southern Belle

A Bridal Luncheon for a Southern Belle

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 […]

Wooden Monogram Eye Candy 2014

Wooden Monogram Eye Candy 2014

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.

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’s Finally Happening-Southern Nest Vintage Collection is here & and it’s going to be on WCCB Charlotte!

  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 […]

Broken air conditioner during a southern summer? No.

Broken air conditioner during a southern summer? No.

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 […]

My Dining Room Design…All of the Painting and Gluing Craziness

My Dining Room Design…All of the Painting and Gluing Craziness

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

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 […]

A Few of My Favorite Things

A Few of My Favorite Things

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 […]

The Wooden Silhouette

The Wooden Silhouette

Southern Nest Silhouettes The silhouette.  It’s classic, elegant, and has an air of vintage sophistication.  Suddenly, I am obsessed.  After browsing different options for having a silhouette made of little B (for myself and as Christmas presents for the grandparents) I knew I wanted an updated spin on the traditional silhouette portrait. It all started […]
