Northern Nesting

4.15.2011

This week I want to introduce you to a new blogger and my friend, Martina. I came to know Martina through rate my space on hgtv.com a couple of years ago. I was so excited when she decided to start blogging. She has a beautiful home and here are just a few photos from her blog Northern Nesting.


This is Martina's lighter and brighter dining room that she recently painted. The before was pretty, but this is even better. I just recently did the same thing to mine. She and I have so much in common when it comes to changing things and  doing some DIY around the house.


Look at this great shot she captured with the sun streaming in.


This is her wonderful family room. She just refinished the frame on the art work above the fireplace.
Blogging is already turning her into a painting fool just like it did me.


She creates beautiful vignettes and this is a tray she made over.


Another great vignette.


Her son's cute room. She painted the stripes.


Her daughter's pretty room.


We even have Ballard's pillows made with the same fabric and monogrammed. I think we are related somewhere down the line. I have the euro shams in this fabric for my bedroom.

Thanks, Martina for letting me share your blog and home.

I hope y'all that don't know Martina will pop over and welcome her.

Enjoy your weekend!
