November Nesting


If the calendar says November, that means Christmas is coming.

It means I should be doing the following:

Sewing pillows,

painting + stenciling everything in my path,

+ sewing yet more pillows.

 Exhibit A: painting + stenciling.

This coffee table is being re-done in my newest style obsession,

which I am calling Vintage Blanket.


I kind of love it where it’s at right now.

Perhaps I will keep it for myself!  Stay tuned!


But wait.

November on my calendar means merch, yes.

But is also has me yearning to binge eat the following:.

 3-packs of Affy Tapples

Countless containers of pumpkin flavored Greek yogurt.


HA!  JUST kidding about the binge eating!  (Or not.)

Actually, I find myself wanting to NEST.

Time to putter around the interior of one’s house,

after one has neglected said-same house all summer!

First, I have turned my attention to our living room,

more specifically, the windows.

  Look!  I’ve sewn curtains + lots of them!

My beautiful, semi-sheer fabric was once IKEA curtain panels, @$20 per pair.

2 pairs yielded more than enough fabric

for both our living room bay + our dining room bay.

6 window treatments for only $40-ish!


The embroidered stripes + knots are festive, are they not?

They add a little texture + a bit of pattern to our rooms.


I opted for only a single panel at each window,

as I thought the standard 2 pairs looked too puffy + granny’s house.

The single panel just looked better to me.

It allows lots of light to stream in (big priority for me),

+ we can still see outside.


Thankfully, it also handles my other concern — privacy,

both during the day + night time.  Yay us.


But wait.  What!?

Somebody’s forgotten to hem her curtains!



Fingers crossed I won’t procrastinate too much + do some hemming, stat.

Stay tuned!

    Love the curtains! Your pillows are looking so sweet. I especially like the “joy” one. Ha ha on the hemming. I am the queen of procrastinating in regards to curtain hems. Ask my husband. Pumpkin Greek yougutt. Might have to try some.

    I bought a box of Pumpkin Spice Cheerios this afternoon, + yes, I know. It’s getting a little crazy. I also secured some wonderful black + red plaid flannel fabric for the backs of my Joy pillows, as well as small red bells for their corners. TY for the compliments!
