When one really needs to just FALL ON THE FLOOR..

This is my gal pals lovely website..Julia, or Jules as I call her...She is a house lover, extraordinaire...

She does all things houses, and I mean all things. Hollywood starlets, bad MLS photos, gorgeous one of a kind mansions, you name it, if its about houses, shes done it. Shes big...like ultra..amazing. People come to HER for a house fix..

Imagine my surprise, last week when SHE emailed Lil old ME..yes, people..ME.

"Hi Lisa, I just wanted to tell you I would LOVE to do a feature on your little Coastal Nest Cottage..send me some great before and after photos.."

After, I went to the freezer to fetch an ice pack for my head..you know, because I fell off my chair and hit my noggin on our paper shredder..I went into this crying fit that wouldn't stop. If you know me, you know that I have a bit of a struggle with all things..well, overwhelming.. I guess its probably pre-menopause..I had a big birthday recently that's been bothering the hell out of meUmmm, yes 45, and then these 3 little things..
People say BAD things come in 3s, well, its been good things for me.I am overwhelmed with joy and happiness!!

First it was the one I bow to everyday.. my very favorite writer in the whole world and the one who inspires me to be a great writer..haven't achieved her level yet, but she is hysterical and I can now say we are
just the best of buddies, and I no longer feel like a freaky stalker..Another lovely Pacific Northwest gal,  I love you Mrs G! You make me laugh out loud most everyday!!
See her here at
The Womens Colony
please dont forget to check out mancake, my fave..wa wa wa..

Second, its Miss Karla over at another blog I like very well. She also is another gal from the great state of Washington and has a sweet "decorator gal" blog called
Karla and Kelley came out and spent a girls weekend at the beach house..then went home and raved about it..here

Then, the piece De resistance..

I'm not sure if the Coastal Nest gal can take much more! all of this great press is making my head spin, or maybe its from the concussion..Naaa
Anyhow, I just want to thank these 3 delicious gals for all their awesomeness..
I appreciate it beyond words..

ALL the best....
Lisa

I'm here from Julia's blog. Your cottage is adorable! You all did a great job! Can I ask the specifics of the green paint you used in the main rooms? Would love to know if the great color on my monitor is even close to the real thing. It looks gorgeous on my computer.

Happy belated birthday!

I love all things coastal so I'm going to have to bookmark your blog & come back when I can hang around for awhile.

You deserve the attention. Your cottage is AMAZING!

(and I can say that with confidence because I am a proud 44!)

Just a little something from Judy said...

I just finished reading down through your posts and realized once again, ALL of the special events that I missed by not being here. First of all, Happy 45th birthday! I love how you shared that picture of the before and after. You are fortunate because you look good on both. Secondly, it was a privilege to see all the family pictures that you shared. I loved seeing their beautiful smiles, and the special events that you all shared over the years. Thirdly, I offer you my sincere congratulations on being chosen for your coastal house. I am certainly not surprised. I thought it would have happened long ago. Each time I see your decorating skills or pick up a Coastal Living Mag., I think that. Congratulations!!! Enjoy and please share with us.
