Feathered Nest Friday

Welcome to Feathered Nest Friday!


It has been so warm over here and I must admit...
 though it is harder to get into the Autumn decorating 
 I love the warm weather!!
I am not a cold weather girl- but the evenings have been nice and cool
and tonight~we are planning to sit outdoors and enjoy a little fire while relaxing.
On another note~
I have been considering taking the 31 days of blogging challenge and I have to be honest
I don't know if I could even come up with 31 posts about a specific subject that would be interesting or if I will decide to do it but I am considering it- so thought I would ask-
 If I decide to do the 31 days of blogging~  what would you like to see over here?
Vignettes? Photography ? Flowers? How to's? Maybe more personal thoughts? Blogging tips?
 I dunno... suggestions???
Let me know in your comment if you have any ideas or thoughts!

This week I shared a few bits of getting my Fall on around the house.
I am not feeling the usual colors and decor this year... more natural and simple
and I am loving including the pale pinks.

I shared these charming little flowers

Just a touch of Fall in my office

and a new built in bookcase with my quickly gathered collection of whites displayed in it.


Let's get on to last weeks party review and get this weeks party started!




A Cozy Place Called Home shared her Fall mantel

Little Miss Maggie shared her darling Ikea pots transformed

I LOVE LOVE LOVE red transfer ware and this tablescape from Nancy's Daily Dish is just gorgeous.

Beaux R'eves shared her bathroom remodel~ it is just simply gorgeous.

Plank walls...Love them. Domestic Imperfections shared her new plank walls- they turned out beautiful.

  6. Your posts are always so pretty, so if you decide to do the 31 days of blogging, I'm sure what ever you come up with would be wonderful. I thought about doing that challenge last year, but at this point I barely even blog once a week...lol. Hope you have a good weekend :)

  16. Courtney, thank you for featuring my mantel this week and helping me get the word out about my new blog! If you do the 31 day challenge, I'll be by to read. I'm too all over the place to stick to one topic myself!

  18. That is a tough one Courtney. I would probably do DIY projects. We all love to see you create beautiful spaces. Maybe tips and tricks to decorating space or how to stage for photos. Thanx for hosting! So glad I could come and party this week.

  21. Hi Courtney, Thank you for hosting such wonderful party and for having me. Today I am sharing with your readers our annual family trip to one of the best parks in Canada and the lakeside picnic we had there. As far as your 31 challenge is concerned, I think it is better to do whatever inspires you and comes from your heart.
    Stay happy!

  22. Just linked up....maybe for the first time, not sure...LOL.

    That's ambitious but you can do it Courtney! I personally love your design ideas showing your Lowes/ Kmart purchases and how to transform!

  23. Here's my vote..do what you usually do but throw in some photography tips / your photos are exquisite. That's probably a big request for a daily post but perhaps once a week ? I'd love to learn some tips from you...what you use, how you set things up, whatever! ANYTHING :)

  24. Your dainty little flowers are just adorable! I too, love that red transferware! And plank walls? I would love to have a room with plank walls. Wonder how hard that is? Anywho ... thanks for hosting, Courtney!

  25. Hey Courtney, just linked up a couple of posts. Love your new bookcase filled with white goods! and as always, thanks for hosting!

  26. It is not terribly cool at night here! The weather says it will be this weekend. 31 days of blogging, what a great challenge. I would love to read posts about getting your blog more noticed by magazines, I got lucky once with Country Living, would love to hear some of your wonderful success! Happy weekend. -K

  31. Courtney, if you decided to do the challenge, how about dividing your thoughts/posts into a couple of categories, perhaps even reposts on things like decorating, photography, choosing things that interest you. I, for one, am stymied about arranging a lovely display, be it ironstone, flowers, or just things we all love. A blog about the simple (please, please make it simple for me) ways of arranging items that draw you eyes to where they should be. I know this is not coming out right, but I love the way your posts always seem to calm me. Can you share without taking too much time from your busy schedule? I promise to read them all.
