This week we are featuring a line products that we have been carrying for a while now, but we can't get enough of them! They are constantly coming out with new, vintage inspired pieces. This week's product (Line) of the week is Lancaster Jewelry!
As you can see, the Lancaster jewelry line is made up of unique chains, charms, and predesigned necklaces.
Our charm selection includes large charms, as well as small add-ons. These add-ons are perfect to wear with any of our larger charms! Here is one of our bauble charms paired with our XO charm.
Although we do love all of the Lancaster jewelry charms, my favorite charm is the bird and nest charm. I wear it with everything. I have the charm on an 18" antique ball chain, so I can easily pair it with longer necklaces that I have.
If you like cross jewelry, this "Over the Heart" necklace and bracelet are perfect pieces.
Each of the Lancaster jewelry pieces are 100% brass and are artisan made in the USA.

This week's product of the week is our new Produce Candle Line! Amy and I discovered these candles at market in Atlanta and had to have them! They are characterized by their garden fresh scents and unique branding. Scents include Radish, Carrot, Peanut, Melon, Wildflower, Kale, and Honey.
We love the details of these candles. Above is the packaging of the Melon candle. It has a sweet scent, just like a piece of melon. On the back if features growing information about melons and when they are in season.
Personally, my favorite scent is the Honey candle. It has a perfect simple and sweet scent that I love!
Amy's favorite scent is Kale. She likes the cleaner, simple scents!
These candles can be found at http://www.thenestonline.com/Produce-Candles_p_140.html... Try one out! The aroma will prepare you for gardening in the Spring. Let us know what you think!

We are all collectors in our own way. When we go to antiquing or shopping, there's always that one thing that we are searching for. I like to collect vintage cameras and Amy likes to collect anything small and old. We love seeing other great collections.
Collecting is a hobby that makes shopping fun. I get so excited when I spy a vintage camera that I don't have in my collection, especially when it has a very reasonable price tag. Those are the moments that keep me searching and looking for more antiques.
As you'll see in the photos below, collections look great displayed together. Another thing I love collecting are old bottles. Put multiple old bottles together and they make the perfect display.
Here are some collections we found on pinterest..

We are thinking we need a reclaimed shed at The Nest!

Our first blog DIY project! If you know Amy and I, that's a pretty big accomplishment... but we wanted to do a Valentines project for Lydia as well as my younger nieces Delaney and Ava. All of our credit for this project goes to allforthememories.com.. Make sure to check out her blog for more fun projects to try!
Supplies for this project were pretty simple..
-a photo printed on to printer paper
In other words, all things you have laying around the house... No excuses, right?
First, start by brushing Mod Podge onto the back of your image. Our images were all around size 4x6, but just make sure the popsicle sticks easily cover the back of the photo.
Now, stick the popsicle sticks to the back of the photo, one by one. Until.... The back is completely covered.
Now, flip it over so the popsicle stick side is down and begin to brush mod podge over the top of the photo. Now let the photo dry.. We promise the mod podge dries clear :).. That scared me a little bit the first time I mod podged a photo..
Here are the three we did in the process of drying..While our photos dried, we decided to put together bags for each of the puzzles and attach a piece of muslin to the front that says "Love you to Pieces"..
Once your photos are dried, you can write a message on the back of your popsicle sticks to your special valentine!
Here are all of ours we did today!
These make the perfect gift for your little one.. or your nieces or nephews :)
Here is our finished product ready for delivery:
Did you make Valentines for Valentine's Day this year? There were so many cute ones to see on Pinterest.. Let us know how you celebrated!
Happy Valentine's Day Everyone!

Have you tried our Park Hill Collection Candles? We order these from one of our favorite vendors, Park Hill. We love their packaging, their look, and each of them smell amazing! We sell them online on our website www.thenestonline.com... Amy and I both burn them in our homes and love them!
|Each has a very individual scent, like Vine Ripe Tomato!|
|Sweet Tea is by far our best seller! It has a very refreshing scent that we can't get enough of.|
|The best part about these candles is they are unlike any other. They go perfectly in your decor! After the candle is finished, I use the container to hold my makeup brushes or you can use it for office supplies.. Anything you can think of!|
|Can't you just smell it? :) I'm burning my Farm House candle by my computer now!|
