Our Nests

Welcome to our condo.  We are fortunate enough to own two homes.  One is a small condo in Birmingham, Alabama and the other is a garden home on the Gulf Coast.  The following pictures are of the condo.

Table Set for Four in our Dining Room

Because the dining room is small, the table is sitting on a diagonal to provide more walking room. You see an example here of my collection of dishes and I made the floral arrangement on the table.

Entertainment Center Bar

I turned an Entertainment Center into a Wine Cabinet.

Coffee Table Arrangement

Laundry Organization

My sister and I worked several hours in my Laundry Room. It’s small so it had to be organized.

Shelves above appliances were purchased on Craigslist.

The courtyard was a huge selling point in the decision to purchase here.

When we learned we were moving here 3 years ago, I was very fortunate to have enough furniture, either stored in the basement or gifts from family, to furnish this home and the condo in Birmingham.  We only had to purchase bedding and a few new accessories.

Dining Room

Some would call this the man-cave, but my man loves wine, so his is called the Wine-Cave.

Office Nook

Using our space in ways that best suit us, we used the Breakfast Nook as our Office Nook.

Our “Cottage Guest and Bath” will do for now, but I have big plans for this suite.

Master Bedroom

These little architectural “windows” are two of my favorite purchases since our move.

 These are some of my most precious art pieces. The artist of most is my very talented and generous daughter, who has painted these as gifts to her dad and I.
