It’s official, Nesting Place has been online for 10 years now and to celebrate, Chad and I wanted to host our own giveaway, no sponsors, just us gifting you some of our favorite things to say THANK YOU for being a part of the Nesting Place community.

I’ve picked out ten of my favorite things that we use in our home and we are picking ten random winners and each winner will receive one of my favorite things!

Here are the prizes, I think you’ll recognize them…

Angel Wings

One of the most asked about items in our home, these wings are huge (almost 4’ high) and add whimsy & texture to any room.

Relax Canvas by Lindsay Letters

As a serial mantel changer-upper I used to change my mantel 5-10 times a year. Until this I got this canvas. Relax has been hanging over our mantel for years now and I still love it. The contrast & movement make it a lovely statement piece.

Belly Basket

Holds toys, pillows, potted plants, groceries, trash, anything! I have this in white, but I like the black even better. Contrast is queen.

Disco Ball

Sphere of joy. Ball of wonder. Totally useless other than looking pretty and throwing light and causing delight, a great conversation piece. You are going to wonder how you ever lived without a disco ball sitting in your window.


Pair of Buffalo Check Pillow Covers + Feather Inserts

Timeless buffalo check fits into any home & any style, pillow covers are separate so you can remove them & wash them #winning You know how much I love feather inserts — God’s stuffing, if they go flat, just refluff them!

Farmgirl Flowers Bouquet Delivery

My absolute favorite place to receive flowers from, and to send flowers from is Farmgirl Flowers. You’ll wonder if Jesus and Oprah made the bouquet especially for you. Lucky.


Marble Board, Striped Towel + Iowa Pine Hostess Set (you can get this FREE right now + a free apron too, find out more here)

I use my marble pastry stone as a serving tray more than anything else–charcuterie anyone? The limited, seasonal scent Iowa Pine is EASILY my favorite scent to use in the kitchen. And we have a big collection of striped Turkish towels– we use them at the beach, keep extras in the car for picnics, add them to the sofa as a throw and just like to have them around because they are thin, but absorbent. They get better as you wash them. A fun little set that you’ll get lots of use from.

Letter Board by Letterfolk

You know you want one. And if you have one, you know you want more. Display your favorite quote, verse or what’s for dinner.

Indestructible Outdoor String Lights

If you’ve been to our place you know we are obsessed with these. I bought our first strand before we even closed on the property. That strand has been up and lit, day and night for four years. We’ve had temperatures from freezing to over 100*.  We’ve changed burnt out bulbs, but these light strands are still going strong. Now we have about 10 strands of these string lights on our 12 acres and they set the mood for cozy evenings.

House of Belonging Sign by Aedriel

“If you want to bring happiness to the whole world, go home and love your family.” –Mother Teresa I adore this sign and have it in our entryway. It’s huge and glorious and you are going to love it.
