whimsical wednesdays {nesting}

I am moving to Atlanta in eight days! Now that I'm officially relocating and living by myself, in my very own, single, all mine, apartment, I've really caught the nesting bug.

The other day, I went to Anthropologie, and didn't even look at the clothes. I spent the whole time in the at home section.  My entire focus has shifted.

My budget is slightly resricted (!). Fortunately, my parents are very generously allowing me to take furniture and decor from our old house. They've basically outfitted my entire apartment with adorable items I would not have otherwise been able to afford.

Had they not so kindly gifted, I'd probably be scrambling to determine how to decorate.  If I were starting to outfit a home for the first time, I'd be lusting after some of these lovely spaces...
Aren't they beautiful? 

What's even more fulfilling than looking at all of these chic homes, though, is my favorite new website, Thursdays.  As one who is just starting my own place, I've become addicted to their easy recipes, crafts, and ideas.  On a shoestring budget, simple DYIs are just what I need.  

My favorite part about the site? The Thursday night dinners that served as the company's inspiration were held while the creators were in college at Indiana University.  Nothing warms my heart quite like supporting fellow Hoosiers does.
