Hilton Head is the ideal vacation spot for me. I like to explore nature…but then I want to go home and swim in the pool, drink wine, and eat oysters. We’ve gotten our taste of both nature and glamour today. It’s our last day here, so we wanted to make it extra special. We spent [...]

I got a very sweet email the other day. A complete stranger told me they missed my blogging and hoped I’d start doing it again regularly. It made me feel so nice, but it also made me feel a little sad that I couldn’t keep up with everything. The reality is that I love to [...]

We had such a fun day. It was the birthday of one of my dear friends, so we headed over to Birkdale Village for lunch at Zoe’s….kids in tow.  B, Gigi, and I went to Nothing Bundt Cakes to get the birthday girl a cake. Y’all, this place is ridiculously amazing. I cannot believe how [...]

  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 [...]

Hi there…wondering where I have been?  Typically my posts are flowers and sunshine…this one is a bit different.  I am uncertain as to where to even start. In August, my husband and I learned we were pregnant with our second child and we were ecstatic.  Then, on a normal day in September, I was sitting [...]

Halloween Party: Costumes and Cocktails

This weekend, we had our “Costumes and Cocktails” party. We had an unbelievably great time! Little Briggs went to visit his grandmother for the night, so we were having a “fun night” with our friends. We decorated our house and kept the lights dim to create a “Haunted House” vibe. Bat cutouts, crepe paper, spider [...]

Halloween Crafts: A Creepy Grin

All week I will be crafting for our annual Halloween party. This is, perhaps, the easiest way to jazz up your standard candle and bring a little whimsy to your house Halloween night. I took a vase that had an already tired white pillar candle in it. (below) I cut a “jack-o-lantern” style evil grin [...]

Unique Vintage

Love vintage clothes? Me too. Unfortunately, my knack for finding vintage treasures for the home doesn’t always seem to translate when it comes to finding vintage clothing. This is where Vintage Revolution comes in. My amazing friend, Kerry, has an incredible talent for discovering beautiful vintage garments. She sells them for an incredible price, too! [...]
