A Destination for Nesting

September 28, 2011

In the silence, she shifts forward, L’Heure Bleue’s woody violet creeps into the curve of the corridor.

The lively and lovely birds collected scissors, stories, laughter, and washi tape at our recent outing to The French Nest in College Park, Florida. Settling into a room filled with treasures—stacks of linens, a doily with a perfect center rectangle, glass vials, vintage jewelry, a black and gold polka-dot minaudiere, elegant and creepy gloves, a pink tutu—the setting inspired possible color palettes for future projects and talks of fictitious character plots.  

This month’s DJ muses —poet/photographer/wonder(ful), Summer; photographers and newbies, Linda and Cindy; writer extraordinaire with great hair, Beth; and uber- talented, Jen—made the evening truly memorable.

Thank you Marsha and Shelley for letting us explore your charming shop!

As September comes to a close, uncover something old to develop something new.  What ancient phrase quoted by your great-great grandma causes you to pause?  Is there a memento that offers an entry to a new series of sketches, or a photo, or some delightful form of correspondence?  Build a secret nest within your Destination Journal.
