Today I am excited to be a part of The Nesters' It Doesn't Have to Be Perfect To Be Beautiful party.

The Nester is one of my favorite bloggers because she inspires by example. She makes decorating seem do-able, affordable and easy. I love her realistic "my-home-can-be-beautiful-AND-livable" attitude! Her ability to decorate a home is amazing!
Anyway, her challenge today is to show the beautiful reality of one part of your home.
Several months ago I posted this about Mi Nidito, or my nest. This is where I study, or talk on the phone, or read, or snuggle with my kids, or needlepoint, or escape to watch a movie on my iPod when the kids are gaming or watching SpongeBob for the bagillionth time.
It's in the corner of my bedroom, and on most days it looks like this:
Every once in awhile I clean it all up and dust things, but it never stays that way for long.
As a matter of fact, my bedroom is right off the formal living room, so when you walk into our home you can look right into our bedroom. This is how I keep our bedroom, as seen from the living room:
But if you walk into the room and take a look to the left, it's there. My Mess Nest.
There is the throw pillow given to me by me dear friend, Jen with One N; my hand quilted blanket, given to me by Aunt Gertrude; there are bible studies and novels, catalogs and phone lists; there are guitar picks and hand weights. Those two boxes on the left are the last two moving boxes left to unpack (we moved into this house 14 months ago!)
But it's my little corner, and to me it's beautiful!
