Feathering the Nest: Some Sneak Peeks

With the gradual emergence of springtime outside, we’ve begun to develop the “nesting” projects inside. Armed with inspirations from Pinterest, we have a handful of projects in the works! (The green paint color isn’t quite as deep in real life, as it seems on the screen; it’s “Aged Gold 080-3.”)

As we seek to create a simple haven of rest in our home for our family and guests, we’ve been puttering away in various rooms. (And a bit overwhelmed by the disastrous look right now, where everything is piled in the middle of our living space, so that walls can be painted!)

I finally took down the last of our Valentine’s decor, and created a new mossy wreath for our front door. I used the directions from Jo-Ann’s, but I was originally inspired by this moss wreath tutorial.

I found a couple sewing patterns at the thrift store, and had fun starting some new projects alongside my friend and contributing writer, Emily, during our recent visit. (Emily finished her skirt from Sew Liberated– mine’s still not done; you can see hers here.)

Do you have some simple spring nesting projects in the works?

I loved making this acorn version last fall, and Michele made a mossy version. […]
