Nettleton Hollow: Nature at Your Finger Tips

Well, it's been a while since I have blogged. Life has been a bit hectic this summer, especially last week. We had the passing of a beloved pet of 21 years, my brother got married and we found out we are having a baby girl. Thankfully we have the blessing of a little one on the way to help get past the loss of Miss Lulu. We are thrilled to have a new little one join our family (of two) and of course I am thrilled to get started on the nursery! Hopefully I will be able to keep up with some more blogging now that I am feeling more energized and the thick of all the weddings are through.

Now that we know it's a girl my mind has been a busy bee figuring out how to design the room. I have settled on something a bit girly with a little bit of nature thrown in to the mix to keep it humble...just like her mama ;) I was doing a little searching today for a birch branch to use as a curtain rod on the window and came across this amazing site, Nettleton Hollow. Gone are the days of going to the local craft store to hunt for some nature inspired branches or foliage to have in your home that you saw in an amazing display at a high-end store. When I go to the craft store, I am always disappointed by the wimpy willow branches or sad looking dried flowers with not much else to chose from. Nettleton and Horton carries all those amazing branches and grasses you see in store displays that can create a dramatic yet simple statement. My one issue is that I just need one birch branch and they come in bunches of 5...hmmmm. Still love the site though!

I am excited to share my ideas for the nursery as I go along - stay tuned!
