The Tattered Nest

OK, I'm going to be completely honest..........I think I usually am, so I don't know why I said that........but.......I found Gail's site, The Tattered Nest.......riding on the coat tails of Notes from a Cottage Industry. She wasn't riding, I was. Tracey from Cottage Industry is hosting a Holiday home tour.........she even asked for one of my photos! But Gail's home was hosted, that's how I found her. Looking at her photos on Tracy's site.........I knew I needed to see more. I also knew I didn't have much time and I must share her NOW!...........so here's a quick creative fix.

Gail's house looks like a place I could just curl up on the couch and stay forever. I adore her style. I will be spending more time sifting through her treasures. Can't wait.

When I saw this idea........I had to share it immediately. She took one of her mother's hankies and placed it in this ornament to give to her sister. I mean seriously.......is that not one of the best ideas?
This is just a sample of some of her wonderful holiday decorating. So much more on her site.

Can you stand it? The garland, the tag garland.......and stars..........lovely.

At first I thought that this was a wall decal........wouldn't that be cool? But I think it's a cardboard cut out...........still very cool. The vintage style is so original.

This is her sewing/ creation room. Look at that table! Look at the perfect linen colored walls. Look how there's NO CLUTTER! The brown star with the blue eggs! I'm dying........the chippy mantle..........I have died.Cute home. It just looks like nice people live there, doesn't it?Moving onto spring and summer.........Could it get any cuter?I would love a screen porch. The antique window, all the white, the sheer curtains.........oh the dinners that you could have. What a lovely home.

Gail, I'm coming back to snoop more. Love your style.
