Hi, I’m Becky

For the last 5 years we have lived in our fixer upper home. We’ve done little projects here and there but now we are getting to the good stuff. I’ve always loved interior decorating and had a vision of the potential our house had lying in store.

I hope you follow along with our everyday life and feel inspired to create a space you love no matter where you are.

Breaking Up is Hard

Breaking Up is Hard

I have big changes in store for www.shapingthenest.com. Five years ago I started this blog where I talked all about our new house and home renovations as well as creating a garden to eat from year round.

Over the years, friends have asked me for both garden advice and home decorating help. It wasn’t until earlier this year that I realized what I should of been doing all along. Instead of just writing for myself I could branch out and write in a way that helps others as well.

My goal is to create helpful content that applies to you. With that goal came an epiphany I had a few days ago. The realization was that I needed to split my blog into two separate sites in order to better serve all who read my blog.

Shapingthenest.com will continue on as solely a home renovation/home decor blog.

I have started a new site, www.theseasonalhomestead.com where I will post all about gardening, natural living, and garden fresh recipes.

I really love both home and garden so it was too hard for me to drop one and not have the other. If I had to choose, I would lean towards just keeping my garden blog. But we are finally getting some really big and cool projects done around our house and I can’t help myself from posting them too.

All the old garden posts have moved. Head to my new site HERE.
