Nesting


There was a trend for a while in home decorating. I think it was called "nesting" - where people invested time in their homes and entertained themselves there instead of going out.

I still see it, with cooking and entertaining for friends at home.

Watching movies and listening to music at home.

Things like Superbowl parties and dinner get-togethers.

I'm not much of a hostess, but I do enjoy spending time at home instead of going out.


So this little oval charm, with the word "NEST" inside, might be about that.
As the days shorten and the weather starts to cool, finding a way to be comfortable and cozy at home.


Hot chocolate, a fire in the fireplace and a warm afghan over my knees. Looking ahead to the changing season.

Nested and cozy.

What a sweet charm--love it!

I think with the economy the way it is people are 'nesting' more and going out less. Also, the cooler weather lends itself to staying home too!

What a sweet simple pendant. Perfect for the nesting idea. Yes, I do think that more and more people are 'nesting' these days.

I love the colour in the background on the charm, ditto on all said, i think nesting is becoming very important again in our lives because of the economy and season.

Hi Lynn,

My home looks like a magpie's nest filled with all sorts of lovely things in a terrible crash of disorder. I certainly don't entertain, but I LOVE being home and cozy with my sweet spouse.

"Charming" charm!

Emanda, I too am a hunter gatherer when it comes to fun visual things. I love the look and texture of fabrics, sculptures and collectibles of all types. It's what makes moving such a challenge!

I've been making homemade fruit yogurt smoothies every day instead of buying one, and lighting lots of candles around the house as the days shorten. Love that flickering glow. It was in the 40's yesterday morning. Pretty soon I can have a fire in the fireplace.
