New in February

As we are heading into February, I can't help but think I'm missing the boat! So many great tidbits of advice, so many great resources and an abundance of talented people we can all benefit from...this is the year of sharing! An intention for the New Year...pass along all the great ideas and inspirations I'm lucky enough to be a recipient of!
Since 2011 began...
We attended the gift show in downtown LA...we took my mom ~what a great experience for her, she's never attended anything quite like it. With the hopes of finding new artist, walking aisles and aisles to do so ~ I believe we accomplished our mission. I can't wait for the new arrivals!
We had a wonderful artist reception featuring the jewelry of Gloria Prins and Lynne Carmody...the selection is awesome, they left their pieces for us to enjoy! In addition to the reception, we celebrated our 1 year anniversary!!!
Artist/Musician Jean Sudbury played her Mandolin then transitioned over to her Violin ~ she was the opening....her music was beautiful and peaceful!
Following was Michelle Beauchesne playing her Cello along with her friend Jeff playing his Violin...they were a wonderful duo. The setting was perfect in the back patio...we couldn't have asked for a more beautiful day and evening! Visit www.michellebeauchesne.com to learn more about Michelle and contact Mary's Market in Sierra Madre to listen to Jean play...

Please come in and check out our featured artist...Karen Walker Chamberlin. Her paintings of Milagros are so beautiful and just flat out cool. You can read about her on our artist page.
Lots of new merchandise as well has come in...come visit the nest if you haven't been in a while. We should be on line soon!
Peace and Blessings!

Happy New Year!

A great time to reflect, make some positive changes and set those resolutions! I hope you don't get discouraged if your not able to keep them all...sometimes life happens! God only knows we always have the best intentions.
Here at the nest we have made quite a few resolutions for 2011. I am sooo excited to share.
Reflecting back on 2010...the year has been so eventful, eyeopening, inspiring, fulfilling and just wonderful. Considering our poor economy, the struggles of so many people and our time of uncertainty...truly, all our customers and vendors were so complimentary, positive, friendly and patient. It was a joy to come to work...so thank you for a great first year.
Stay tuned as we are almost ready to launch our new website with online shopping. Thanks to John Culpepper, our website designer (whom I recommend highly!) is helping us out in this arena. We are combining all kinds of technological terms...I hope you find it to be very user friendly and beautiful.
Our continuous efforts of bettering the shop...we have some really great vendors and beautiful merchandise, try to stop in if you can. We will be receiving new books in shortly and new merchandise is starting to flow in again.
We are also just about ready to launch our own "belle's nest" product line...it's small, but it's a beginning.
We are very excited about the year ahead and will keep you updated on all that's new...join our mailing list for monthly updates.
Happy New Year!
