Nest: A blogger on the town

Last night I attended a soiree for bloggers at Nest, a home decor shop in Uptown Dallas.  The party was hosted by two lovely Texas bloggers, Fabulous K and Hello Splendor.  It was great to see so many beautiful people networking and getting the dish on all that Nest has to offer.  Me?  I wasn't networking.  Or dishing for that matter.  I was circumnavigating the beautiful people, complimentary champagne and cupcake in hand, gawking at all the beautiful upscale swag on hand.  There was some seriously pretty stuff to be seen, admired and coveted. 

Some of my favorite things included this Goddess Bust Candle.  
She's crying wax, people!  How cool is that?

I also loved these gray earthenware bowls.

...oh, and these cute little elephant salt and pepper shakers by Jonathan Adler.

...and this salt and pepper duo.

Alright, alright, alright... I liked all the salt and pepper shakers!

My mom took care of my boys so that I could attend the event.  I took advantage of this and after the party, treated myself to a dirty Greygoose Martini with extra olives at a nearby bar.  Thanks to Fabulous K, Hello Splendor and Nest for a lovely night out!

P.S.  Don't forget about our current giveaways from Formosa Designs, which ends tonight, and Burlap and Blue! Make sure you've entered for your chance to win!

I thought the store and the crowd were fantastic. It’s interesting to see that everyone's 5 favorite things are totally different from each other! Except you and I did both pick Mr. & Mrs. Muse S&P Shakers! I love that so many small businesses are catching on to the power of local bloggers. What a great way to spread buzz!
