I’m Cindy, thank you so much for visiting The Quirky Nest.
The Quirky Nest derives its name from our Realtor's query, "What are you looking for in a home?" to which my Hero responded, "Something quirky, no cookie cutter houses." And so this little house became ours. The fact that it came with no less than five birdhouses plus one vine-wrapped bird condo kinda underscores the whole nest thing
We share our home with one large Chesapeake Bay Retriever named Willow, and two kitty boys named Finneus and Barley. AKA, the kids.
I'm a recently transplanted Southerner. We're not really all that far north of the Mason Dixon Line, but there are moments when I feel a strong kindred spirit with Dorothy.
I'm the mom of three grown sons and the grand-momma of two beautiful granddaughters. Two fabulous daughters-in-law are an added bonus.
I qualify for most, but not quite all, senior discounts. It’s sort of a blessing with a curse.
I'm a hunter-gatherer. Antique shops, flea markets, dusty old junk shops and architectural salvage yards are my perfect playgrounds. Finding that unexpected something that I didn't know I was looking for makes me absolutely giddy.
But mostly, I find my greatest joy in helping others, nurturing my family, creating a warm inviting home, and adding a little of my history to the things I touch.
My Hero and I have a very long list of projects that we are undertaking around our home. Old houses, with their lath and plaster walls and less than level or straight anything, bring a whole different set of issues to the table and I can’t wait to share our challenges and solutions with you.
In 2020 our little house will be a century old. We, my Hero and I, are working hard to make sure she is ready for the next 100 years and would love for you to join us on the adventure.
Joy to all!
