 Time for us to get to shopping together!  I’ve hand-picked items for the Nesting Place sale at Joss & Main and I hope there is something that you can use or that can inspire you for your Beautifully Imperfect home.  In my 17 years of home making, I’ve learned that it’s fun to start with a neutral base  to ground the room, like that stuff in the photo above and then…

And then add pops of color and interest and QUIRK like this stuff:

I love an unmade bed


I have two more things to say.

1. For the Risk Avoiders

You know that thing you see that makes your heart beat faster and you think, oh I LOVE that and I wish I could pull that off in my house but only other people can use things like that in their house and my Mother In Law will think that I’m ridiculous if I put that in my house so I will play it safe and surround myself with the semi-beautiful, average, unremarkable and uninspiring? Yeah, that?  Stop doing that.  Here are step by step directions on how to pull something off if you need them. Whether that things that makes your heart pitter patter is in this sale, in a garage sale, something you can make, it’s time to stop thinking you can’t be who you are and embrace what you love.  I know women whose husbands are telling them to please, feel free to spend a little money and make this house a home already and fear is gripping them as if choosing a lamp is a life or death decision.  Life is too short and decorating is supposed to be fun.  Enjoy it. Take a risk.  Buy the lamp.

 2. For the Cashless

There have been times in our marriage that I’ve had more time than money. Times that I needed to DIY my way to pretty.  And if you are in a season of that right now, I hope that you don’t see this sale as something you cannot be a part of but as fun inspiration for your next project.  And Joss & Main may read this and delete my sale right now but I have to say this, none of these items, as beautiful and charming and lovely as they might be, are worth putting on a credit card if you can’t pay it off immediately.  As much as I want you to love your home and as much as I don’t want Joss & Main to think my sale failed, I don’t want anyone to feel any pressure to spend money you don’t have.  It’s a process, beauty takes time. Enjoy the process.

Now let’s go shopping together!
