{The Nester}

Have you met The Nester? I know I've written about her and her amazing blog/tassels/fun personality here at Gussy has a lot to say. I just know it!

First off, the day I received my very first comment from her on my blog I instantly acted like I was 12. Yup. Gussy acted like a twelve-year-old. A baby, if you will ;) She wrote something about loving my ruffles and wanted to marry my shop.

And I loved every second of it :)


I've written about The Nester here, here, here, here and here. And here.

But I'm not linking any more posts because then I'll be embarrassed.

The point is that The Nester has thousands of hits on her blog every month {so many people love her}. She's honest, hilarious, and humble. She loves to decorate and make her house a home. And I love to read her blog :)

Over the year we've made contact. I post on her blog things like:


I was thinking the same thing for your living room wall!

and, I'll be over next week to see it myself!

Oh, stop. I don't write those things. But I do leave comments {because I always have a lot to say}.


What I also love is that The Nester and I recently worked together to create something beautifully ruffle'd and full of color. We emailed back and forth on the color palette and it took me about 0.274 seconds to dream up the perfect fabrics.

And then I found the perfect fabrics, bought them, sewed them, and made The Nester her very own Gussy laptop bag.

For real.

{See for yourself.}


Isn't her laptop bag lovely?


Should have kept it for myself ;)

So, I loovvee this! I check your site and don't see anything like it. Do you plan on adding cute bags and purses?

I love that bag! When I saw it on Nesting Place, I almost died over that lovely ruffle.

I have fond Nesting Place memories. These days I don't make it by to comment much (though I read EVERY post!), but the very first time I visited the Nester and left a comment, I won a big beautiful decorating book! It was the first giveaway I had ever won. I loved it! And it was very exciting. =)
