Do yourself a favour and run (don’t walk!) into the gorgeous treasure trove that is Bianca Villa in Lithgow.
Located in Main Street, Lithgow they have wonderful pieces that will make your house feel more like a home and simply just make your heart sing.
Pretty. Practical. Perfect.
I am personally lusting over the metal lockers. LOVE!
Happy shopping Nesters!
I want you to be happy. Some days are crap. That is just life.
So we have found a way to remind you on those it-is-so-crap-being-me-today-so-i-will-just-eat-a-family-size-block-of-fruit-and-nut-chocolate-under-the-doona-and-watch-Judge-Judy-days that you will be okay.
Let us introduce you to the Happy Jar.

I want all Nesters to think about starting one.
It is easy.
What you will need:
- A jar
- Some paper
- A pen
- Some glitter or other sparkly stuff if you like a little glamour in your happy jar
- Some happiness
Each day/week/month you write down on a little piece of paper your happy moment from that day. It can be something huge like ‘seeing my sister cuddle her newly born son’ to ‘I didn’t spill wine on my shirt at dinner’. It doesn’t matter. It just just has to be a happy moment in YOUR life.
The happy jar is to be used on those yukky life days when you need to be reminded just how great life can be. Sometimes a little note to yourself from yourself can help.
Let 2014 be the year to make yourself happy.

Trust me, one day in the not too distant future you will have wished you started one.
I love the idea of DIY but I am one of the least creative, ridiculously uncoordinated people who have ever stomped across the planet.
So when I find a quick, easy(ish) way to decorate your home using basic supplies I get a wee bit excited. Creature Comforts Blog have put together the perfect little weekend task.
DIY Leather-wrapped Vases and Votive Holders.
They are pretty. Delightful. Do-able.
You can find the full instructions over with the brilliant, clever people at Creature Comforts.
Happy making Nesters!
Sometimes the most simple ideas are simply the best. I want this for our nest. Simple. Clever. Beautiful.
Got a papa-bird who has a couple of free hours on the weekend? Why not ask him to throw together this wood bookrest?
Put together using a plank of wood and casters from any hardware store!

People are clever. Especially the people who created Keepy.
If you are anything like our family you probably have not seen the colour of your fridge since the moment you chose to become a parent. It starts slowly, an ultrasound photo. Baby name idea list. Hospital details. Birthday photo. First smile. Then before you know it you are hanging pictures of scribbles and spit bubbles.
Enter the geniuses at Keepy. They have created an app which allows you to take photos of your darling children’s artwork (and other create displays – playdough house, block stack etc) and upload them into a gallery to keep forever.
Simply brilliant in my books.
