Nesting Instinct

Lately, we're all about feathering the nest. Maybe it's the fact that after six long years of renovation/restoration, our house is finally starting to feel like a home. Now, when we hang out in the kitchen, we don't need to wipe a film of Sheetrock dust off the chairs before we sit down. We no longer live in fear of construction debris breaking Gram's Wedgwood. We can finally unpack all the family photos.

Maybe that's why we're drawn to these nest pendants by Sojourn Curiosities. Designer Sarah Gorden of Searsport uses sea glass, gemstones, beads, keys and escutcheons to create one-of-a-kind work, and many of her pieces have a modern Victorian feel. We also love Sarah's wire-sculpted pieces that incorporate vintage hardware and buttons, but these tiny nests are our favorite. For the harvest, Sarah has introduced "apple baskets" (at right) with a similar feel, and they're equally precious. Each piece feels like a tiny discovery.

Now that there's an end in sight to our renovations, we can buy one and not worry about it falling into a duct or getting stuck in a gap between the hardwood and the baseboard. Oh, and we might even have a few found objects left over to help Sarah's cause.
