Details, The Nester, & Happiness

Have you been following The Nester's 31 Days to a Better Dressed Nest?

Well I have. Some days I think this girl is just brilliant!
This post that she did reminded us to fill in blank spaces and pay attention to details.

Went to Hobby Lobby and found that pretty scrolly thing up on top for $14.99.

My wall feels complete now.

Thank you Nester for making me remember to fill in the spaces and pay attention to details.

So very pretty...is it wrought iron or a facsimile?

Your wall does look complete - but I bet it looked nice before too!

So pretty...it sure brought the whole grouping together! Great job Stacey.
Oh Hobby Lobby. I have been going crazy because everyone goes to Hobby Lobby and I never even heard of it before and guess what? I are now getting one. I believe it opens this weekend. So excited!!!

tardevil said...

I so need a Hobby Lobby closer to my house! It looks great!

Perfect! What would we all do without Hobby Lobby? :)

Laurie Anne said...

A great addition to your vignette!Good choice :) I have never heard of Hobby Lobby...we must not have one in Ontario is it like a Michaels Craft Store?

The Nester said...

you are welcome, way to fill in the gaps!

Liz said...

I am so jealous, I love HOBBY LOBBY!! Unfortunately, we do not have one out in my neck of the woods. I think the closest one is 3 hours away!

I love your arrangement on the wall, very nice!

Thank you for the lovely comments!

Hugs and Love,

Liz

I often wonder why some walls look complete and others look too spare. I love the scrolly thing you found! I need something for above my bed but I'm not sure what. I have curved metal at the top of my headboard. Thanks for the link. I didn't know anything about it and I am interested!

Angie said...

Looks great! I love scrolly pieces like that hanging above a picture or over a doorway.

Penny @ The Comforts of Home/Lavender Hill Studio said...

Stacey, I love that "scrolly thing"!! It does complete the space.
Hugs,Penny

Cynthia @An Accomplished Woman said...

Very pretty. She is pretty inspiring.

Melissa Miller said...

LOVE it Stacey! Toppers are always my favorite thing to add to a wall. Your entire wall grouping looks so beautiful. The piece is really stunning. :)

Just a little something from Judy said...

Perfect addition to a beautifully decorated room. It is surprising how little touches can add so much.

Amy said...

It does look finished now. Amazing! I have a few wall spaces I need to get moving on. Thanks for inspiring!!

Beverly said...

Love your little scrolly thing and it is perfect in your wall arrangement. We don't have a Hobby Lobby, but have seen those types of pieces. Always enjoy yor posts.

Ramona said...

Hey there Stacey ~
Too cute post. I love your scrolly thing...in fact, if you wake in the morn and it's missing...you know who took it!

Have a great day and a Happy Halloween.

Smiles ~ Ramona

bj said...

First, you are the sweetest thing, Stacey girl. THANK YOU so much for linking me today. My desk top is just sick as it can be...doon't know if they can fix it or not.
We finally got my laptop up and going. I have the worst luck with computers.

I HAVE been following the Nester. I love her!! She is smart and so resourceful. I try to do everything she tells us to do. :O)
And, that piece you put over your picture looks perfect. Love it....
love, bj

Hey Stacey,

I like that sweet picture under your scrolly piece. Sounds like you got a pretty good deal at $14.99.

I'm also cheating and commenting on an old post. My two favorite decorating books (and believe me, I have a ton) are Winter House by Charlotte Moss and An Affair with a House by Bunny Williams. They are both a little higher priced than the Nell Hill's books (also yummy), but so worth it. And to second what someone else said, if you've never been to NH in Atchison, go quickly! It is jaw dropping divine.

Stacey, that ties that grouping together perfectly! It looks beautiful. laurie

What a gorgeous wallscape! Isn't it funny how adding one little detail can make such a difference? I love it! And $14.99! What a steal!
Have a Happy Halloween!

I have the same scrolly thing from Hobby Lobby too! Just like it and I love it!

Journey said...

The scrolly thing is perfect!! I need someone to make house calls!!! This time of year especially, I have the urge to shake things up, move things around and make it look new and different!

Patti Cakes said...

Hi Stacey! My Pup is about 10 or 11 years old. We are not sure. My son rescued him when he was young. The owner kicked and beat him. Took him about 3 yrs to get over it but now he knows he is greatly loved. I like your place here. Hugs

Shelia said...

Hi Stacey! Oh, I love your scrolly thing above your art and the whole picture layout! Looks very nice.

G'morning, Stacey in Oklahoma.
Thanks for stopping in to see Peter Pan.
Are you just at a writer's block or just tired of posting? Hope things are ok.....
Have a good day..it's supposed to be in the middle 70's here today and I sure have some work to do in flower beds. Don't seem to be in the mood today but I'd better do it before cold weather hits us.
I'd RATHER GO THRIFTING !!!:O)
