The Nester taught me so much about how to "dress my nest" in her decorating series this month. One of the lessons was in layering. I looked at her examples and thought, "Hey, I like that!" Then I looked around my house and thought, "Hey, I DO that!"
I layer all the time. See?
So, anyway, I splurged on an original piece of art during my trip to Paris in September. I love it, I saved my hard earned frame money with something like this in mind, then scoured galleries until I found the perfect piece. I wrapped it carefully and held it lovingly on the plane during the flight home. Then I set it around here and there, not sure where to properly display it ever since.
I was laying in bed during my sickness last weekend (Did you know I was sick? Did you know I had laryngitis? Did you know not being able to talk is as bad as any torture I can imagine?) and it occurred to me...that Nester is so smart! An ordinary frame on the wall just isn't my style. It's so boring. This piece is so special. I need to layer it!
So I did.
A little "S" hook hung onto the ironwork and it's done!
I might have to tackle other areas of my house with Nester's help. She gave us 31 ideas in 31 days, you know. Maybe you should go check it out!
