the crow’s nest, glitterized

3 Dec

perched high above the leaf-swept streets, we watch.

huddled close to the heat vent, avoiding the frigid kitchen with it’s drafty windows taunting, we forget the sweltering heat of summer, how this same room became our sauna.

this is your time, crow’s nest, to glitter and glow.

merry christmas.

vintage tin trees & stockings from mod store in nashville – ornaments from dear friends & family!

all our art gets a special holiday makeover!

every hatdoor needs some christmas lights

cozy corner

blurry pictures aside, the whole nest glitters.

this weekend we will experience christmas city at its best, a festival of course!

    Your nest looks fantastic! I love that you covered your art with wrapping paper. And that you have a hat door. So cool.
