NestKeeping: August Monthly Recap AND The Hometalk Giveaway Winner~

August was a busy month around here.  We spent it getting a little more settled into our new house, and getting the kiddos ready for and off to their first day of school.  But I did manage to get a few posts up which I think are worth sharing again (just in case you missed them the first time!)

In Painting 101, the Hubby shared some of his tried and true tips to prep your walls for a flawless paint finish. Seriously, when it comes to painting, the man knows his stuff.


I shared some great tips for renters (and homeowners) on how to make a space your own in my DIY Renter's Repairs and Tips post.


You won't want to miss the FABULOUS smores recipe I shared for National Smores Day.


And check out the room I came up with using this pretty outfit as inspiration in this month's installment of If This Room Were an Outfit.


Finally, if you missed any of the great Frugal Friday Link Parties (serious inspiration here folks) you can find them here, here, here and here.

And last but not least, the winner of the Hometalk giveaway for a $100 Pottery Barn giftcard is...
Something Nice and Pretty!!  Congratulations!  Drop me an email and we'll get you set up with your prize!





Have a lovely day~
