Nesting on Main

the letter n for nesting

esting is an art and is surely influenced by


the lovely shop Nesting On Main.



A shop tucked high above the others, like a decorated bowerbird nest.  Located above a cafe on Main Street in Concord, Massachusetts.


DSC09371This is the place where I go to for inspiration.


DSC09368The place where I take my friends to share in the oohs and aahhs,


DSC09365and then after collecting inspiration and a few unusual trinkets, head to the cafe downstairs for coffee.


DSC09354This is the place I would like to take you to today.


DSC09350Each beautiful vignette is an inspiration.


DSC09328Combining new and old


DSC09336with a touch of something so special, like a bowl filled with seahorses.

DSC09349The art of nesting...

DSC09347Collecting our little baubles and such to create lovely vignettes of our own.


DSC09348Making our homes cozy and enchanting.

DSC09340The shopkeepers, Wendy, Melissa and Beth are amazing people.


DSC09327This little haven has lifted my spirits on a bad day,


DSC09326and inspired me on the good days when I am swept away on creative adventures after memorizing the magic.


DSC09337Yes, this is the place that has inspired so many of my fabric designs and posts.


DSC09361More than the objects, more than the beautiful and talented way each shelf, nook and cranny and corner is staged...


DSC09335The warmth and attention that these ladies give to their customers makes you feel like you are coming home.


DSC09333Nesting on Main, I hope that you have enjoyed your trip with me on this beautiful Springtime day.  Visiting here certainly takes me back to Somewhere In Time.


Now, let's go downstairs and get that cup of tea or coffee, shall we?

Oh wouldn't that be fun? I'd love to. Nesting on Main looks like a shop filled with surprises and delights. I wish that more places like this had a nearby coffee shop.

Oh my! Seahorses...a whole bowl full! I would be in heaven! We have a store called Day in the Country in NC that I love to visit! It's fun when there's some new items with vintage! I always love the soaps at these stores! Thanks for taking me along today! ♥

Thank you so much for visiting and letting me know how much my mom means sometimes hearing how much someone has been impacted by others makes you really feel like there is still hope left in the world. Thank you so much.,

And, I would love to visit with you. My soul could use some soothing.
