As leaves flutter to the moist ground and the temperatures drop, my nesting instinct kicks into high gear. This autumn I'm loving the look of mixing Blues and Browns. At our hacienda, I've gone heavy on the Blue Willow dishes, vintage blue ticking pillows, and brown toile fabrics. While I always enjoy hitting the blacktops on the search for good junk, I also like making our house comfy and welcoming for the holiday season. Nests are a big theme at our house. There's just something sweet and comforting about preparing a warm, safe, cozy place for family and friends in the face of the oncoming blustery winter weather. So pull out your favorite cozy pieces, light the fireplace and/or a candle or two, put on the music that touches your soul, and have a special meal with the ones who mean the most to you.  I'd love to hear your nesting ideas and suggestions. Happy Nestin', y'all!

A happy front porch welcome.
