Nebraska Cottage Company's Bungalow personified!

I stopped by the finished "Bungalow Court" today.  It is simply stunning!  Kelly Langer, great friend & camp; resident goofball, came up with the concept of the bungalow court, and planted it in Village Gardens.  I love this area of Lincoln.  It is full of beautiful homes and fun local shopping.  I sometimes convince my hubby to just drive through the neighborhood in the evening.

The Bungalow Court provides neighboors with a shared front courtyard, perfect for gatherings.  The drives and garages are in the back, I LOVE this idea.  It really makes the curb appeal fantastic!  The best part about the cottages? They are so affordable, without compromising any style or quality! 
 I just love them!

Nelly's Nest Welcomes The Goods

Old, New, Cool...The Goods. So excited that my new neighboor has opened. Hours will be the same as mine (how convenient)! M-W-F 12:30-5:00 and Saturday 10:00-5:00. The Goods is a great compliment to Nelly's Nest with lots of vintage "flair"! Stop in and meet the shop owner Kaydra soon!

This is such a great collection of old ropes and pulleys. I've seen similar items in contemporary, vintage, and antique decor. They would be so cool wound up in a extra large dough bowl  

Shop owner, Kaydra, hamming it up for the camera.

With a new shop next door, I too felt inspired to change the shop a bit (or a bunch).  I unloaded a very FULL truck today.  I still have some arranging to do, but it's taking shape. 

Hopefully you can make it in soon!
