Hello friends! Thank you for stopping by and welcome to CoziNest! I began this blog 4 years ago when I knew absolutely nothing about blogging. It’s grown and evolved over the years, as my hubby (007) and I adjusted to life in an empty nest. Blending my love of writing and decorating with an obsession with antiques and art created this cozy little corner of cyberspace. It is my hope that something you find here will inspire you to enjoy your empty nest. Begin a new hobby, start a new collection, travel the world and bring a little piece of each destination home with you. That’s what happened to us. We brought a few souvenirs home from a trip to Italy and promptly ran out of wall space. I opened an antique booth in a local mall and the rest, as they say, is history.
