Welcome to Fall Nesting Week

Fall nesting is seriously underway at my house. I didn’t think I was necessarily in the “nesting mood” quite yet, but things were getting a little out of hand around my house after the wedding and busy summer. Once I got myself going, I really felt inspired to settle back into my fall routine.

Sometime Tuesday we will kick off the Fall Nesting Week festivities, but I wanted to get our favorite Mr. Linky up and ready for those of you who are ready to go! You can link up any post from your blog this week to show us how you are getting ready for fall, nesting, or general cleaning & organizing for the upcoming season. And you Aussies can play along too, nesting is not limited to Fall! Or, show us last Fall’s activities if you’d like!

› Need some inspiration in a hurry?

Not to worry. These should inspire you:

› Not ready for Fall decorating but need inspiration to nest? No problem!

Maybe you just need some inspiration on organization, simplicity or cleaning to jump start your Fall Nesting? Have no fear, I’ve got some links for you to some of my favorites:

Welcome to Fall Nesting Week

Ok, now its YOUR turn! Get NESTING and while you are at it, share it with the rest of us! Leave a comment to let us know what you are up to and link a post up to Mr. Linky! Then come back all week to find new inspiration! I’ll be posting articles, tips, links, photos and whatever I find to help motivate & inspire us to get the new season started! Including MORE reader ideas! Plus, we’ll be joining up with Blissfully Domestic to celebrate the big relaunch of the magazine with an gift card giveaway from me to you. Details to come! Now, get nesting!


Mr. Linky instructions: Please, link to a specific Fall Nesting Post. No general links to your blog or unrelated topics, please. Please put a link back from your nesting post to this post so your friends can be a part of this too. Feel free to add several links to different fall nesting posts throughout the week, and return to see all the amazing nesting ideas!

UPDATE: I’VE ALSO ADDED ANOTHER MR. LINKY for you to post about “20 LITTLE THINGS” that inspire you in Fall! See details here.

  3. Miss Sandy

    This sounds like a lot of fun! I’ll have to check my archives, we are not quite ready for fall nesting yet. I am holding on to summer until the 22nd when fall officially begins!

  4. Ruth

    Aww… thanks for mentioning us Aussies. I’m getting into the garden this week – is that included ;) Love the look of that Spring Cleaning e-book! Thanks for sharing it. I think it’s just what I need to get me going this spring!

  5. Candi- Teal Chic

    I am loving that wreath! Unfortunately it’s still in the upper 90’s out in California. I’m patiently awaiting fall and the cooler weather, so I can get going on this lovely decor!

    Thanks for including little ol me in your link list!

    I heart fall!

  7. Maven


    I just love your blog and am looking forward to meeting new friends and bloggers during nesting week.

    I’ve been a canning, baking, and cooking fool all weekend long. Autumn definitely brings out the nester in me :-)

    Can’t wait to theme my writing this week around this idea… my camera is at the ready.

    Finally, I think your picture of Winston “Every blog needs a dog” is just adorable.

    Hi Melissa, thanks so much for putting me on your list. I just added a third one. The nesting post, I did today.

    Can’t wait to see what everyone is doing!

    I think the fall nesting bug has caught a lot of us, I’m spending the whole month doing just that. :)

    I LOVE that picture- the green wreath and fruit, with the sunlight and the wooden door…so lovely. You’re driving me crazy with all the nesting things- I’m due with our second in 5 days, huge as a house, and have no energy to take on any new projects. But oh how I want to!

    I Wonder Womans last blog post..Craftiness

  12. Jamie

    LOVE the ideas!!! I can’t think about getting my Fall goodies out until school starts on Thursday. I am saving these ideas & am looking forward to getting started!

  13. Lorrie

    My post is up and I may do another one later in the week. It feels good to get a start on fall decorating. The chill in the air here certainly helps me get in the mood.
    I’m looking forward to seeing everyone’s ideas. So much fun! Thanks for hosting this, Melissa.


    Lorries last blog post..Autumn is Here!

  14. DebbieCalif

    Hi Thanks so much for doing this. I absolutely love fall, and feathering my nest, since the fall means more little birdies will be by to eat (Thanksgiving)! God put something within us to want to decorate our homes and make them warm, inviting and comforting to others. It is wonderful! Blessings,
    There is a season for everything…and I love fall!!!!

  15. Mrs. B

    Hi Melissa! I’m so excited about Fall Nesting Week! I’m going to be doing some additional nesting later in the week, but for now I’ve posted some pictures of fall decor from last year. Can’t wait to see what the week has in store!

    Mrs. Bs last blog post..Fall Nesting Week

  16. sandra

    I am looking foward to fall nesting, but living in the high desert of California where today it was 99 degrees it is kind of hard to think about fall. I am though working on some ideas for some fabulous fall conatiner gardening. While on a visit to NYC in June I saw some amazing designs using monacramatic colors in front of many shops and apartment buildings.

  17. laura

    In! Though I “cheated” a bit, since I am nowhere *near* ready for this fall business! :-) And now I have the added pressure of following Martha Stewart? How did I draw the short straw, lol?!

    Thanks for letting me play along.

    is it the real Martha?

    oh, mine isn’t very errr Martha-like…


  19. Beck

    well… it is spring here so my home is prepaing for homegrown posies of bright daisies, fressias and jonquils but i’m filled with memories of last autumn. Bowls of red apples and pears dress my table. Collected leaves of different shapes and colours are scattered amongst the fruit. I light candles in bundles and continue with the autumn leaves.
    I visit the market at place the collection of pumpkins beside my dresser.
    I love Autumn! Wish I’d have taken photos! :(

  20. Michelle

    My husband and I have been preparing for fall the last two weekends with reorganizing and cleaning out. My oldest daughter and I just put up the decorations yesterday. Later this month we’ll go apple picking so the house will smell delicious! A family tradition for October is taking the kids to a nearby farm to pick out pumpkins, a hay ride and making Pumpkin soup (served and cooked in the pumpkin).

    Well I did no know I was into ‘Fall nesting week’ but it seems that by default I am. The weather has been so atrocious I have been finishing my Spring cleaning and ended up having a massive clear out of china, glass and much other stuff that Ihave not used in ages. I have room in my cupboards.

    I have been thinking on these things myself as we head into Spring down under… and reflecting on the simple things, making a house a home and looking after myself after a run of not being well. Sitting in the gorgeous sunshine, creating little spaces in my home for comfort and refreshment. Nesting and reflecting… and it’s such a nice thing to do :)

    Hi sweet friend! I could NOT figure out WHY I had SO MANY more visitors to my blog and then check my referral link and voila! You silly girl! I thank you though for the nice link!

    Hope life is treating you wonderfully!

  44. Amy from Texas

    Hi Melissa,

    I found your site through my friend Julia at Hooked on Houses. I’m excited about your inspired idea for Fall. Is it okay if I feature some of my favorite activities from last Fall? I generally just decorate for Halloween, but didn’t know if that was considered part of the category. I go all out… it is certainly a site to see:-)

    Your site has somehow changed… Can’t quite put my finger on it. Been away a few weeks. Anyhow, this looks like fun! I’ll see if I can come up with something. I’ve been in a nesting mood myself for some reason. I guess it’s just a female instinct. It’s raining though, and I’m wanting to spiff up my courtyard gazebo…

    Well, Fall has not officially arrived down here in Florida yet!

    We have recently moved into a little house built in the 1950’s, and have just finished redecorating the bathroom. We finally got it painted and got the shelves, towel racks and decor up on the walls. It’s a tiny little space, but it’s nice now.

    And as soon as my new shower curtain gets here, it will be absolutely gorgeous!

    I’m completely blown away by all of the wonderful fall nesting ideas that everyone is sharing! This is such a great way to get the season started. I’ve gotten so many great ideas over the last couple of days. Your readers are some seriously creative chickies.

    I just finished a really cool (in my opinion) decoration (I’m not sure what to call it) for my front door. Now if I could just get a decent picture of it.

    But THANK YOU oh so much for doing this week! All of it. All the links which I can horde, until my full Fall Nesting Mania strikes. :-)

    Just another comment to express my appreciation for nesting week. It inspired me to write a blog about my dad – who reads everything I write and for whome it would mean a lot.

    LOVE this fall nesting idea, and I am having so much fun peeking at everyone’s ideas!!! (Especially MARTHA! Geez!!!!) :) But here in Southern California, it is still summer, even though school is starting and such… but 90 degrees is no time to bust out fall decor unfortunately!!!! So I will just check out all your fall nesting pictures and get inspiration for my own at the end of the month:) Love your blog as usual, you always post such great ideas and such beautiful things! xo!

  95. Debbie

    Loving these ideas – thanx a bunch!
    My fall nesting projects have an additional “challenge”: I can’t buy anything new…
    It ‘s the time for me to go “shopping” inside my closets and outside the house – gifts from nature, the garden, treats that have been hiding forgotten in boxes and closets. Or sometimes in plain view…

  96. Rita Finn

    This weekend I’m doing my Fall nesting be hauling everything out of my closets, drawers, linen closets and pantry. Simplifying helps me see what I have and makes my life just a little easier. You can’t wear/use what you can’t see!
    Thank you for a beautiful and inspiring blog!

  97. Mary/Mariah

    I’m really ready for some cool nesting weather . I love fall . Love to sort out and give away those thing not needed . Love to get out those fall colors . I haven’t posted any thing fall . I better get going .I be back when I do .

    I’m going to do some fall nesting today. I will have photos and posts up by this evening, as I have just gotten new computer, camera, and scanner and I’m still trying to figure everything out. Fall is my favorite time of year, and all my decorations are from walmart, or garage sales.

    I love your site! It is always fun to read the great tips and ideas posted by you and by those who visit your site. It is also really easy to lose track of time (and therefore ignore the laundry and the dishes) while I bounce back and forth to all of the great links! Love it!

    Fall in Las Vegas does not offer much seasonal inspiration so you have to really search within to find it. I like to take out my favorite old cookbooks and holiday decor books and look for new inspiration.

  127. Gina

    Love all the great inspiration, count me in!

  128. Raised In Cotton

    Thank You Melissa for mentioning my blog in your Fall Nesting post!
    I love Fall and all of the decorating possibilities it has to offer.
