The view from my nest....

Remember this picture? I took it as soon as we finished the fireplace a few weeks back. Right after I took the picture I went to sit in that green chair (a very comfy nursing glider) but something was missing......I needed a table! So I started dragging one of my little Amish made end tables over to my spot. On my way over Ben asked "Whatcha doin babe?" to which I replied "I'm building my nest." So true. This has been Mama's nest since that day. I love it here. Today while I was sitting here with Ben home, a warm fire going, and a crochet hook and yarn in my lap I thought.....I love the view from my nest. I took a few pictures, got another cup of coffee, and settled in for the day. Perfect.
Is there anything sweeter that children crowded around daddy?Tell me about your nest. I would love to hear about where you relax, think, hold your children, read, work on your crochet/knitting/sewing projects. If you don't already have one I strongly recommend that you "build" one! I promise you will not regret it!

I don't have a nest...but I love yours. Of course, being near that cozy stove would be heaven, but that won't be happening in this house! Thanks for a glimpse- it's made me think what I could do to create a little mama space in the living room.

I have a big 'ol blue rocker that we got from my in-laws and I immediately hated. I am small in stature, and this is just big and fluffy. I didn't like the way my head rested against the back, and my feet barely touch the floor. Now, if I am ever not running around doing various things, I'm in that chair. I nurse both babies, knit their clothes and toys, rock my little guy to sleep, and rest at the end of the day in it. Great post!

i love you nest, and i want one too.
i mine it is not as nice as yours (we are married for 3 1/2 years so far, and we bought this house three years ago so i am pretty new at the whole taking care of a house thing :( ) i need to make it look more cozy. i am on my way there though. :)

My nest doesnt sound or look as cozy as yours but recently we switched around our couches and now we can all snuggle on one couch comfortably and still be able to watch the ever on rotation Curious George DVD.

I am in my nesting phase right now though so I have a feeling a bigger nest will be in the makings soon!
