17 Ways to Add Character to Your Cottage @ The Lettered Cottage {and they are all really inexpensive!}

It was a lot of work but this chair reupholstery was worth it, the fabric makes it wouldn’t you say?  Pandora’s Craft Box

To Theme or Not to Theme :: That is the Question  from Darlene @ Fieldstone Hill  {I loved this post the first time she published it, and it makes me think of one of my first design jobs, the lady wanted a beach theme in her home and she had purchased plastic buckets, shovels and bags of sand. For real.  Not even metal buckets.  Bless her heart.  Wish I could go back in time and give her this post}

Lifeway is running a major sale on my sister, Emily’s book Grace for the Good Girl $5 EACH–it’s such a fantastic book, it’s sold so great and has a super good Amazon ranking {I’m not the only one who thinks it’s great}  and she’s my baby sister and she’s an author and all of us who linked up to Monday’s IDHTBPTBB are exactly who she’s writing to–if you are a perfectionist or recovering perfectionist, this book is for you…here, watch the video if you haven’t seen it yet….

I think my husband and I gave away 30 of these books so far, it’s a great gift book and a great study book to do with a group–MY BABY SISTER WROTE A BOOK, Y’ALL!  $5–it’s a steal, buy them for your friends. 
If you are new here, check out the book release party we threw for my BABY SISTER.  Do you think she will love how many times I call her baby?  30 years ago she would have been in tears over that.

PS, did you see that The Relevant Conference has changed its name to Allume?  Tickets go on sale March 1st and always sell out. I’ll be there this year speaking on Following Your Passion With Purpose and I’d love to meet you!


  1. Thank you so much for the feature, Miss Nester!! You are a darlin!
    How many days left till I get to hug your sweet neck at Allume??

  2. I have 2 baby brothers. It is an important adjective to use when describing siblings! Unfortunately, they might describe me as “bossy older sister”! I can probably live with the distinction, though.

  3. I was never allowed to call her my “little” sister, but then she turned out taller than the rest of the girls and not happy about it…now it seems to make her smile to be called “little”! I DO call the boy my “baby brother”, though.

    Totally bought your sister’s book on Kindle. It saves on shipping, and I am reading it this afternoon :)

    Happy Saturday!

  4. Love the new pics, Nester! Also, I read about the Lifeway sale on Emily’s blog and bought six copies, one to read and five to give away. A WONDERFUL deal, and a good investment.

  5. Ok how did I miss that Emily is your sister?!! Sheesh. Thanks for the reminder heads up about Relevant/Allume I really want to go this year.

    I totally recovered my own chair in that same black-and-white feathery fabric as Pandora’s Craft Box! So funny to see it here. :-)

  7. Just purchased 5!!!!!! I’m so excited about this book!

  8. I just purchased this book as well and am anxiously waiting for it in the mail. I can hardly wait for it to arrive. Hoping it gets here in the next couple of days!

  9. Hi Nester! Is your chalkboard in your living room painted on the wall with a frame around it, or painted to something in the frame?

  10. I wanted to thank you so much for the feature! I am so honored that I even got notice by you.
