That Time When 1000 of You Came to My House (Nest Fest Photos)

10-22-16-nestfestselects0046

Y’all, I am STILL recovering from our first ever Nest Fest. It was the best day ever. After living here for 3 years, we loved being able to use this old sawmill property for something fun and pretty! After writing in this online space for 9 years, it was a dream to get to host a get-together for you!

I asked Barrie to capture the day in photos and she did a great job. Here are a million photos of the day because I love them all–we had 50 vendors, 5 different types of musicians (see them all here) and perfect weather.

I can’t thank you all enough for coming out–from Florida, Michigan, Texas, Illinois, even–CALIFORNIA! What in the world?! All the way to little Midland, North Carolina! It was SUCH a joy, a huge amount of work, and a pleasure to get to meet some of you who have been reading along here on our pretty little corner of the internet!

We’re leaning towards probably, maybe, possibly, yes!, I’m-not-sure? doing this again next year–this year was a huge success and also ton of work that we never could have done without an amazing group of friends like 25 friends that aren’t even in this photo.

If you’d like to be on our email list to find out about possible future Nest Fests (Nest Festi?) either as a vendor or attendee, sign up below so you’ll be the first to know!

  1. Yes, next year I will have to make the short drive from Raleigh!

  2. Oooh, I saw so many lovely things. Do any of your vendors have online shops you could link to?

  3. i hope you do it again! my daughter and i loved it and my mom wants to come back with us! :)

  4. I wanted to come SO badly, but just couldn’t swing the trip from St. Louis this year. I would LOVE to come next year! Please post the date as soon as you know it to help us plan our trip. Your book changed my home for the better. You inspired me to make some (simple!) decorating changes that I was afraid to make for a long time … but I’m so glad I finally did them. I love you and your sister both !

  5. I couldn’t make it this year either, but would love to come next year! I live in Illinois but have always wanted to visit NC. Your blog was the first one I ever read way back in the day – end of ’07/ early ’08 maybe? Your philosophy of idhtbptbb has seriously changed my life and I would love to meet you one day! :)

  6. My most favorite event I’ve ever done! Thank you for letting me be part of it. (And if you ever need help with it in the future, I’m just up the road.)

  7. I would love to come next year!! Sounds ike the perfect rod trip for my BFF and me!

  8. I just love this.

    Love you.

    Love what you do and how you think and thank you for how you do it.

  9. I love your rustic and charming style. Nice photos, by the way.

  10. I’m dying to go next year so I decided to start saving now (I’m in western Canada!) just in case you decide to do it again. Thanks for sharing all the pictures of Nest Fest, it looks seriously amazing!

  11. I’m not a good hand writer so I’m not sure if I could produce such a nice and sweet chalkboard as yours. Sometimes simplicity makes effective. Yours is enough for the coming party.

  12. I absolutely love your photos! Lively and active photos!

  13. Spot on with this write-up, I truly believe this amazing site needs far more
    attention. I’ll probably be back again to see more,
    thanks for the information!

  14. Ich freue mich über jedes Like des Artikels :) Hallo ich habe das auch mal probiert bei bdswiss und ich muss sagen ich finde
    vieles merkwürdig. Anlagestrategien fur einen effektiven Handel Das Prinzip bei den binaren Optionen ist leicht zu verstehen. Welche Möglichkeiten gibt es für
    die Einzahlung und Auszahlung.
