The nesting place

I remember when I first met Myquillyn. It was in Nashville about six years ago, and we were both attending our first blog conference. She remarked about how small my purse was—at the time I carried a little clutch of a thing. I found it amusing she even noticed it.

Over the years, we’d go back and forth with questions about the business, discovering that we were both INTJs (the rarest personality type of all for women), and generally seeing eye-to-eye on almost everything. Even though we have fairly different blogs, we’re both passionate about our words making a difference, and it’s safe for me to say that she’s one of my favorite people. We podcast together frequently, too.

And this week, her newest baby was born into the world! I am so psyched to love all over The Nesting Place, and to give five of you a chance to win it!

the nesting place

See, there’s one thing I adore about Myquillyn’s book, what set it apart from normal home decor books: it’s actually a book about imperfection.

You won’t find tips on how to keep your shelves perfectly dusted, a DIY instructions on how to make a slipcover without any puckers or wonky corners, or otherwise convince you that you need more space.

the nesting place at home

In these pages, you’ll find a clarion call to love where you already live, and for making what you already own work for you. The decluttering minimalist in all of us (okay, maybe just inside me) can shout from the street corners about this book, because it’s a book about loving your home. Not about making your home loved on Pinterest.

Myquillyn shares her own story about living in a bajillion homes in just a few years, and what each home has taught her about herself, her family, and what really matters in life. She’s a normal person with a keen eye for what works where—and then has a knack for sharing her ideas and encouragement in an approachable, sisterly way.

Every page has photos. The typography is beautiful. It’s even pretty without the jacket. And I, the minimalist, have kept it out on my side table just because it’s pretty to look at.

This would make an ideal Mother’s Day gift. And five of you will win one!


Myquillyn wants to give five Art of Simple readers a copy of The Nesting Place! To enter, simply leave any comment on this post (if you’re reading this via email, please click over to the blog to comment).

This giveaway will end this Friday, May 2. I hope you win!

    Wanting to make our house a home.

  28. Jeanette

    In a culture of HGTV and pervasive, perfection and image-focused influences telling us what our homes, apparel, families, and lives “should” look like, we need more voices like this one calling out to remind us that home is a place that should genuinely reflect our families’ preferences, personalities, and priorities from within. There is intrinsic beauty in the uniqueness and imperfections of who we are that translates well into livable warmth and space to grow together at home. Hope to read it!

  29. Amy

    Sounds like a great read! 😀

  30. Joyce

    I would love to read this!

I can get caught up in the ‘Pinteresting of my home’, if you will, and enjoy anything that encourages me toward enjoying what I have been given.

  37. jessica

    Looks like a great book!!

  38. Ann

    Nesting Place has been one of my favorite blogs for a long time. Her encouraging, realistic advice has changed how I decorate, and more importantly, view my home. I would LOVE to read her book.

    Yes, the book sounds like a ton of fun. She’s the one who said “it doesn’t have to be perfect to be beautiful”, yes? I need that!

  89. Amy Rogers Hays

    Nesting Place is the only decorating blog (although it’s so much more than that!) that I read, because she makes me want to make something beautiful without making me feel that I have to spend a ton of money or that right now I am somehow less because I don’t have the perfect home. I’m so excited for her book!

  111. Gabrielle

    If anyone needs to be reminded that “it doesn’t have to be perfect to be beautiful,” it’s me! I must read this and would LOVE to win a copy!

  112. Erica

    I’m really looking forward to this book… such an important, life changing space to be in is ‘contentment’ and it sounds like more than anything, that is what this book is about!

    Can’t wait to get this book!

  127. Eddie Becker

    My wife who gets caught up in the house looking perfect all the time (despite have a 3 and 4 year old running around) would love/need this book. Sometimes stay-at-home-moms need someone or something to help lift the two story domestic castle burden off their shoulders. Thanks for posting it! Hope I win a copy!

  128. Elizabeth

    I would love this book – I find myself getting frustrated with my home and suffering from Pin envy. Rather than trying to work with what I have all I see is how that space isn’t how mine is shaped and therefore what they did won’t work. Being able to read a book where someone helps in a “sisterly way” would be amazing – as long as she’s not like my sister. 😉

  129. Kristin

    That sounds great! I would love to win it!

  130. Jacqui

    Can totally relate to living in a bajillion homes in a few years. I need to read this I think!

    Would love this book. I have absolutely no decorating expertise. My living room looks like a doctor’s office. Need some help to make it look and feel homey and peaceful.

  134. Twila

    This looks like a fun book to read!

  135. Laura

    It looks beautiful! I’d love to read it

    Oh man. I keep hearing about this book and I don’t think it’s just because of fantastic marketing. We’re leaving our home to spend all 12 weeks living at a summer camp – in a tiny cabin – and as we’re eyeing a big move next year, I think this book needs to go along on our adventure this summer.

  143. Kelly

    Wow, a book about appreciating where you live would be a great read!

  144. Erin

    Can’t wait to read this, I hope I win 🙂

  171. Etika

    I bought a new house last year and I still don’t quite feel at home. Maybe “The Nesting Place” would help.

This book sounds like just the thing that might do that.

  215. Rebekah L.

  216. Christy Mandin

    Oh man. The excerpt on Amazon that says, “I can sit here today in our rental house and embrace where we live and declare that I am content. Because I trust that even though this might not be the exact home I’d choose, God chose it for me, and it is home”……..SLAYED ME! Myquillyn Smith has obviously been sneaking into my kitchen and writing this book because, YES! I would love, love, love to win this book. But if I don’t I’m going out and buying it anyway! So good!

  217. Elaine

  230. Shauna Burton

    We are packing up to leave our first home. We have been there 10 years. Going in we knew it wasn’t going to be our forever home so I really never made it ours. If I could go back and change that I would. Very bittersweet time in our lives. I would love to win a copy of the book.

  231. Aimee

    Fingers crossed!

  232. Linda R.

    I love the Nester! Would love a copy of her book – thanks!

  235. Serena

    Congratulations to Myquillyn on the new baby. New babies are wonderful.

  236. Heather Sweet

    What a great opportunity! Thank you so much for the chance to win this book. It sounds exactly like what I need. I, of course, love Pinterest, but I’m also well aware that my home will never look Pinterest-perfect. A goal of mine this year to embrace my life and everything in it. This book sounds like it will be an incredible addition to my reading list and home as a way to always remind me to be grateful for everything I have in life.

  237. Frances

    Can’t wait to read it!

  238. Danika

    I have this book on my holds list at my local library but owning my own copy would be even better. Thanks for the chance!

    A perfect Mother’s Day gift, indeed! I can hardly wait to read this!

  245. Megan

    Can’t wait to read this book, and not having to wait for it to be acquired by my local library would be even better!

    I had no idea INTJs (also my personality type) were a rarity among women — I learn something new every day on The Art of Simple.

  246. Gina

    I love her message and can’t wait to read the book, I’d love a copy!

  247. Jen

    After nesting in the last stage of pregnancy, I’ve thought a lot about how to simplify our home yet make it feel cozy. It’s a small home, and filled with even more love, now that or little girl is here with us. Sounds like this book would be a great inspiration. Thanks for all you’re beautiful blog work!

  248. Kathy

    I would love to win!

  249. Jennifer S

    Been in our home for 1.5 years. Not loving where we live, but realizing I don’t need to wait until the next house to make it feel like home. Ready to build our nest here. Would love, love, love to win this book!

  259. Jen

    I have loved Nesting Place for years! The Nester, and her blog has been a huge inspiration for me. I’m far from perfect and so is my house, but i’ve learned that i can love it anyway!

  260. Amy Kasari

    Yes please 🙂
    Sounds like the perfect companion for a good spring clean.

  261. LouisaWA

    I would love this especially since we’re getting ready to start house hunting.

  265. Lisa

    I am so excited for this book! Crossing my fingers. 🙂

    I’ve been eyeing this book since I first heard about it but do not have a copy yet. Would love one though!

  271. Nancy

    Sounds like my kind of book. Would LOVE to read it.

  272. Ghislaine

    Just moved from a country chic place to a 60s modern, minimalist place. What a challenge!! My move is arriving Monday… sure could use this “imperfect” book to make the place “warmer”.

  273. Suzi

    Tho book sounds wonderful!! I would love to win!

  274. Jessica

  277. Katie

    As a wife and mother of 3 who lives communally with my parents and two brothers ages 22 and 16 finding a nesting place is quite the challenge. Especially since when I have spent the money or tried to create on, those who live with me tend to undo it. I would love to read this book and learn how to create a nest whatever my living circumstances.

  278. Susan

    I enjoy her blog and would very much like a book to help me “love” my transitional, wonky old home. 😉

  279. Addie

    This is so cool! Just coming out of a huge construction project (inspired by Tsh’s book One Bite At A Time – project on making your home work for your family), I can totally relate to this. You need to be happy and comfortable in your home, your sacred space. For us, it means a place of rest and fun and love and being ourselves and living our mission statement – celebrate family, friends, traditions.

  280. Cheryl Ives

    Would love to read the book! (and I love the cover design)

  281. Linda

    Woke up this morning still asleep. Allergy season. Got to work and reading my daily dose of the Art of Simple, and say your post. BOY WOULD I LOVE A NESTING PLACE NOW.

  282. Tanya

    This book looks fantastic! Can’t wait to read it!

  283. Barb M

    I have this book in my wish list, it would be so great to win it! I love the idea of loving the home you are in, not always saying ‘in our next house…’. Thanks for the chance to win!

  284. Allison

    Pick me! Pick me!

  285. Diana Yarborough

    Want to read this book!

  286. Trudy Rogers

    As an empty-nester seeking to simplify her life, I think this book is just the proverbial “cup of tea” that I need as I ponder the next chapter God is writing for my life. I can’t wait to read it!

  287. Elizabeth J.

    At this particular point in my life, this sounds like something I need to read. Would love to win it!

  288. Charlye S.

    The cover of this book is so beautiful & inviting!!! I would love to dive in to it & be encouraged & inspired! Thank you for the opportunity to win this lovely book.

  289. Tricia Paoluccio

    I would love to read this! Living in a NYC apt all I seem to do is declutter and re arrange…I’ve been so helped by some inspiring books and would love to add this to my summer read list! Thank you!!

  290. Jessica

    I’m guessing this is just open to the US readers, but I must say that this book looks so good! We all need to learn how to be content with and make the most of what we have.

  291. Lisa

    Pick me!
    1. It’s my birthday
    2. I am a fellow INTJ, and
    3. I recently accepted for myself that my house is perfectly imperfect and I am trying to switch off the part of me that sees the imperfections first. It’s a process and I think this book would help me.

  292. Donna

    It’s always nice to find fellow minimalists. Many of my friends and family tease me about my minimalist leanings (lovingly, of course), but as I grow older, it becomes an even bigger part of who I am. I just want room to breathe. I hope I win this book, but if I don’t I hope it will be a blessing to those who do. And I’ll probably buy it anyway. 😉

  293. Julie Dyanne

    I heart living simply!

  294. Lesley

    I would love to read this.

  295. Christine

    with just 8 weeks left to prepare our home & our hearts to welcome our first baby into our lives, this book would be an incredible gift to have as we start this incredible journey of building & loving our home :o)

  296. Julie

    We are moving soon – I would love to read more to create my own “nesting place!” Thank you!

  297. Susan

    I would love to win a copy!

  298. Lindsay

    What a treasure! It would make for a delightful Mother’s Day.

  299. Lorrie D

    Reading her blog has helped me become more brave! Not so paralyzed by perfection. 🙂

  300. Rocio Bates

    A lovely giveaway for May First. Here’s to beautiful people who write beautiful books!

  301. Jennifer

    This would be great for my new home!

  305. Christine

    I’ve been downsizing the last year. Would love to read this book.

  306. Julie

    I love Nester’s blog, so I know I’ll love her book. Seems like God is writing in big letters over my life, “Embrace your limitations.” So embracing imperfection in my home sounds like a good place to begin!

  307. Jennifer

    Can’t wait to read it!

  308. Anu

    As a mimimalist on the verg of a move to the otherside of the world I would love to read this before we leave and then pass it forward to my sisters.

  310. Karol

    I would love a copy!

  311. Lori H.

    This looks really good! I would love a copy!

  312. Donna

    My husband has always called me a “nester” and this seems like a perfect read. On a totally separate note, I happen to be a nester that loves to watch 48 hours and Dateline or almost anything on ID. Does it strike anyone else that the second photo appears to be a beautifully staged crime scene with blood spatter. Or is it just me and the fact that I need to re-watch last season’s Hannibal and catch up???!

  313. Blanca

    Love your home instead of making your home loved on Pinterest. LOVE it!!

  314. Laura

    This would be a lovely prize!

    I was interested in reading this book before it was released, but now that I am reading all the incredible reviews, I know that I really, really need to read this book! I can’t wait!

    I have been following this book all over the internet. I’d love a copy!!

  341. April

    I can’t wait to read this book! I just know it’s gonna be fantastic!

  342. Carolyn

    I am also an INTJ. I didn’t know it was so rare in women, but it might explain my outlier tendencies. The book sounds intriguing because I am nesting in my fifth home. I hope you pick ME!

  343. Joni

    We just moved into a new house and I would love to read this!

  344. Rebecca R

    This sounds like a fantastic book!

  346. Leanne

    Looks like an interesting read!

  347. Renee

    Could use this book for my old,old house with crooked walls!

  348. Lori Grade

    It seems like there are a million ways to be dissatisfied with our homes—magazines, Pinterest, television–they all work against us by showing us what a beautiful house should look like. But what if our lives (and our resources!) take us in a different direction? I applaud anyone who writes about avoiding the sin of comparison and helps us live with contentment. I look forward to reading this book!

  349. danielle

    I would love to read this book! Seems like a book written for a person like me!

  350. Ariana

    Looks like a great book!

  354. Renee

    My old house with its crooked walls would love that book!

  355. Jami

    I love her blog!

  356. kelly libby

    Looks like a great book! I could use some help on embracing my small space – an 1890’s Victorian apartment.

  357. Mary

    This book looks beautiful. I love combining elements from nature with simple items I already own. I am always looking for fresh ways to arrange my mantel in our cozy country home. I’d love to win and thank you for the opportunity. I love your blog. Tsh!

  358. Jenni

    Such a cute idea!! I love it!

  368. Gracie

    Would love to read this book! Just bought our first home and I need some serious direction.

  369. Lori

    My “nest” has become a “place” that I usually want to fly away from. 🙂 It is in need of purging . . . and loving. We’ve been here for over 15 years . . . and have wanted to move for years – but it was not feasible. So . . . learning to love this full and imperfect nest. I love what’s in it . . . my 5 kids and hubby! 🙂 Just not all the clutter!

  370. Kristen

    This sounds fabulous! And I agree, the cover is beautiful!

  371. Tina

    Love where you live 🙂
    That’s my real estate agent’s motto!

  372. JC

    This book sounds like a gem! Can’t wait to find myself a copy!!

  373. Emily

    I’d also love a copy! It’s perfect timing because we’re about to move into a tiny but sweet cottage, and I’m trying to peacefully start addressing the clutter we’ve built up in just 2 years of marriage. A beautiful strategy to tackling this project would be so appreciated and such a relief….

  374. Angela

    That looks like a perfect Mother’s Day gift!

  375. Jen

    Would love to enjoy this book. Owning our own home for the first time in last two years, I would love some inspiration.

  376. Krista

    looks great

  377. Leigh Ann

    First, I LOVE to read! Second, I love the idea of a home decor book that fits ‘real life’. I would love to win this!!!

  378. Susan NC Price

    I’d probably give this to my son and almost-daughter-in-law–after I read it myself!

  379. Meredith

    I am slowly trying to get over my insecurity about the imperfections of my house and embrace my home!

  380. Jenn Lussier

    What a wonderful way to start my subscription to this blog! I am just beginning to uncover the vast community of bloggers that share some of my most fundemental values and themes in life…to read about accepting and loving the simple and love-strewn home I have, with the people an memory provoking things I have loved inside of it…..and not the magazine worthy perfect mix of tapastries and drapes, supports and inspires me. Thank you!

  381. Marcia

    Sound like I book I would really enjoy reading and dreaming over.

  382. Jacque Kruger

    If I don’t win this book I will have to buy it! Looks great!

  383. Katie

    I would LOVE a copy of this book, to add to my imperfect home!

  384. Jodi

    Looks like a great book, thanks for the opportunity!

  385. Lindsay P.

    I want to read this so badly but just can’t splurge on another book purchase right now!!

  386. Grisel

    I love The Nester and what I’ve learned from her, to love and see the beauty in what I have now. Would love a copy of her book!

  387. Jessica

    Just had a bout of jealousy over my sisters lovely new home. We visited just before they closed the sale and the house hasn’t been lived in for months so it was, above all the other wonderful qualities, a blank slate for them to make their own.

    I have found that my way to work through my jealousy is to try to be in my own home with fresh eyes. A little extra cleaning here and a few things I am ready to let go of there. A little extra time to sit and knit so that I can feel what it is to be here.

    With that said, I could use a little help finding my way to loving where we are in all its not-blank-slated-ness. And as usual, here comes Tsh with just what I need next.

  388. Kim Gibson

    I will have to go back to my Do What You Are book and take that personality test again because I’ve forgotten exactly what category I fall into, but it was a rare one. The first letter was definitely “I” as I am an introvert. This book is sure to be wonderful. I am a huge fan of Myquillyn’s blog.

  389. Mary Johnson

    Would love to read the book. Thanks for the chance.

  390. renee

    Nester has brought such goodness to the world – happy for her success!

  391. Wendy Jackson

    I recently moved into a new home that is 1/4 of the size of my last home. It has been such an adjustment for our family. I would love to read this book in hopes of feeling at peace right where we are.

  392. Mary Norton

    I love the personality website, so helpful and easy to understand/use. And I would LOVE a free copy of this book!! I have a hard time finding contentment, and would love some insight for perfectionists like me!!!

  393. Michele

    I would love to read this!

  394. Sarah Fisher

    Oh, too neat and unique. I actually call my small apartment “the nest.” How befitting? I love the thought and heart and look of this book! Definitely will be going on my must-read/must-buy shelf!

  395. Helen

    When I got married, Martha Stewart was all the rage, making homemakers everywhere feel like their houses had to be perfect all the time. My home is imperfect and cluttered, so of course I get anxious having people over. And I desperately need to get over that.

  396. Robin

    Loving the place you live and learning to make it beautiful sounds just wonderful to me.

  397. Leigh Dusek

    I would love to get and read her new book!

  398. Jordan Faeh

    I am so interested in this book!

  405. Angie

    Great giveaway!

  406. Julie Crosby

    I’d love to win a copy of this book. We just moved to a house of 1,000 sq ft less than before because we wanted to downsize and minimalize and free up our lives. I could really use a resource to help me make this new house a home.

  407. Amber

    I am a big fan of pretty decorating books, and I love the unique premise of this one! Would love to read it.

  408. Abby A.

    I love her blog! It would be great to win her book!

  409. Smithu

    Would love to win something beautiful like this… trying to adopt a minimalist lifestyle… Working well.. 🙂

  410. Lisa

    If I were blessed to win a free copy of this book I’d be giving it to my sister! Just once I’d love for her to see how others see (and feel) her home and then she’d know it IS beautiful. We all love being there and feel so at home. Though when we say it’s cozy (and it it is!) she hears – small, and on and on and on. I may be buying it for her for Mothers Day even if I don’t win a free copy. 🙂

  411. sara

    Looks like a good book!

  412. Jesie

    What a beautiful book!

  413. Jenna

    I love this idea!!! Due to my husbands job, it has been a challenge for me to “settle-in”, as we never know how soon the next move will come! And, with three kids, I yearn to give them that sense of roots, although they might be more like those of an air plant;/

  416. Bobbie Czajka

    I’d love to take a gander at this book. I’ve stopped collecting books (almost) because my collection was bigger than my house! BUT, I just have a smaller collection now. Would love to win it.

  417. Janis

    Wow! Would love to win this book. When you explained the personalities you have in common I actually clicked on the link and took the personality test and found I am a infd. Personalit. Very interesting and also explained why I love the sound of this book! Thanks!

  418. kate

    I would love a copy of this book! I am so tired of feeling guilt from a disorganized home, but I know some things need to change in order to help reduce the chaos…

    I have a feeling this book would help my family find some much needed middle ground 😉

  419. Jess Presley

    Sounds like a great help for us as we bought a fixer upper and are remodeling it ourselves, its always been a challenge for me to decorate and organize as im not naturally girly that way;))

  420. Amy

    I always enjoy when you 2 podcast together! Thanks for keeping it real. 🙂

  421. lbe

    Putting it on hold from the library in case I don’t win it… thanks!

  422. Susan

    I would really like to win!

  423. Victoria

    Would absolutely love to read this book!

  424. Kimberly C.

    I love this way of life but it is always encouraging to hear others thoughts on the matter. I would love this read.

  425. niha

    Imperfection? Loving where I already live? Decluttering minimalism? Heck yeah. I would love a copy of this book!

  426. Shelly Stark

    I would love a copy of this book! Thanks for the chance!

  428. Melissa

    I would love a copy of her book! I enjoy her blog and podcasts.

  429. Kate

    As an aspiring minimalist with a nesting gene, I would love a book that inspires appreciation for what I have. I’m so over pinterest and seeking impossible perfection!

  430. Meredith

    I’m just itching to read this book after reading this post! I know both my decluttering minimalist self would enjoy it 🙂

  431. Valerie W.

    Definitely sounds like my kind of decorating book! Thanks for the chance.

  432. Michelle

    As a recovering perfectionist and over spender, this book would be very helpful to read as we are in the journey to a more simple and purposeful life.

  433. Mara

    I would so love to win a copy of this book!

  434. Jo

  436. Katie K.

    This book would be a true God send for me right now.

  437. Melissa

    Looks lovely! My thoughts are consumed by subjects presented in this book. I might have to get myself a copy anyways.

  438. Jennifer

    I love The Nester, and I would sooooo love to read her book! It sounds amazing!

  439. Lindsey P

    Embracing the imperfect: the only reason why I don’t go insane while crafting. The book looks beautiful!

  440. Kimberjo

    Looks like a beautiful book. Thank you

  441. Rebecca

    I’m still learning to embrace imperfection (though the look of my house would make you think I’m a little too comfortable with it :-)! ), but the Nester is a great encouragement to me. She’s one of only two decorating-type blogs I read. The other is about small space living and also embraces ordinary life. So much better for me than the Better Homes & Gardens slideshows I used to look at!

  442. JoDi

    Another INTJ here! I would love to read this book. It sounds so different!

  443. Julianne

    Would love to win this book!

  444. Debbie

    I had no idea what this book was really about so I’m glad that I read this post, to find out it’s something I think I could really benefit from (the perfectionist and minimalist in me). So excited you’re giving away some copies. I saw it on the bookshelf last week at Lifeway and was immediately drawn to the cover too–beautiful!

  445. Terri-Ann

    You had me at INTJ. I didn’t know it was so rare in women, but that explains a lot. Looking forward to the book and I would love to win!

  446. Natalie

    This look like a fabulous book! I’ve been working toward that marriage of a minimalist-ish lifestyle and being content with what I have and where I am. I want to live richly and meaningfully.

  447. Sloan

    I hope I win too! We just bought our first house and I am so excited to decorate- imperfectly, of course!

  448. Laura

    Oooooh this sounds like a fabulous book! I would love to read it!

  449. Linda

    I love finding new books, this sounds right down my alley!!!

  450. Beth Rudolf

    I’d love to win a copy of this book. I could use some inspiration with loving my home and what I have.

  451. Melonnie Henwood

    Looks and sounds like a fabulous read, perfect to keep me in check from wanting everything perfect whilst making do with the plenty that I have so as to afford buying my very own (first) home.

  452. Ashley Whiteside

    What a dream of a message and book. Would love to read it!

  453. Katharine Bedsole

    Love the idea of making what I have work. Sometimes the difference between just right and out of sorts is a tweak here and there, not a complete redo. Hoping this will help me look at my spaces with a fresh eye.

  454. Jenn

    I would love to read this! Thanks for the opportunity!

  455. joyce landry

    I would love to read this book, sounds like my kinda book to read. I especially like the comment given that the book is about loving your home.,not about making your home loved on Pinterest.

  456. Elizabeth

    This book looks beautiful on the outside as well as the inside and I’m sure would quickly become a well-read, dog-eared friend.

    This sounds like just what I need right now! Thanks for the giveaway!

  458. Laura

    Love!!! Thanks for the chance to win a copy!

  460. Leigh Kramer

    Really looking forward to reading this!

  461. Rebecca

    My jaw dropped when I read that both Tsh and Myquillyn were INTJs (as am I). I’m doubly impressed because I know how hard it is for me as an introvert to “get out there” – blog, etc, and it is inspirational to see you guys do it so well.


  462. DinT

    Would love to win this book! On my read list.

  463. Kerstin Klassen

    Yes, please!

  480. Amy

    Thanks for a chance to win! Sounds delightful!

  481. Lauren

    I really want this book it looks so amazing!

  482. Natalie

    I’d love to read this book! I’m so excited that it’s finally out!

  486. Lesley

    I’m expecting and definitely in the nesting phase – would love to have this book help create my home a nest too!

  487. Koralea Velazquez

    I feel like this book is the visual version of Notes from a Blue Bike. Which btw- is my favorite book in a LONG time.

  488. Lindsey

    This looks like a beautiful book!

  489. Kanae

    I always enjoy when Myquillyn is on the Podcast. Love the idea of “It doesn’t have to be perfect to be beautiful”. It’s a great reminder that my life doesn’t have to be perfect to be happy. I would love to read this book!

  490. Krista

    I love the idea of a home reflecting my heart, rather than what I found on Pinterest.

  491. Dorothea

    Sounds lovely. Would enjoy reading this book!

  492. Simone

    The part of me that is eternal is so longing for Heaven, but the part that isn’t, longs to learn to create a peace filled spaced to call home. I so need this book.

  493. susie

    I would love a copy!

    I’d love to read this one.

  495. Emily Baker

  511. Nicole I

    I am so curious and about the book. I also always thought of her as “the nester” and never considered her first name!!! Oh the blog world messes with us!

  512. Kelley

    What a beautiful book. Touching the everyday homeowner. Those without much decorating skill or money to pay for it! What a feat to combine beauty and comfort with the frugal-ness of reality.

  513. Rebecca in PA

    Sounds amazing! I would love to win.

  514. Sarah

    Thanks for sharing! Would love to read this!

  515. Christine

    I think I would really love this book. I am a military wife and we have moved 5 times in the past 5 years. I often find myself buying new things to fit into our ever changing spaces, and I’d love to read from a decorating perspective that could help me become more content with what I already have and figure out how to make that work in my (current) new space!

  516. Tara

    We are currently in a very stressful period of transition and drastically simplifying. This sounds like the perfect surprise to brighten Mothers Day and provide some hints to make the process more simple and stress free

  517. Beth

    Need this book!!!

  518. Rhonda

    As a fellow INTJ this book sounds perfect! I’m making some big changes this year as my youngest is now 3 and we are entering the “home-school” phase with the last of my babies! What an incredible journey baby/toddlerhood has been! With 3 boys now all past the stage of attachment, my house can once again be afforded a bit more time! This book will be on my wishlist.

  519. Robyn

    looks right up my alley! I’d love a copy!

  520. Stephanie

  531. JenP

    Looks like such a lovely book, I’m off to check out her site! Thanks!

    sometimes I get a little gloomy feeling like my apartment still looks like a college dorm. would love to read this!

  533. Dayna

    I would love to read this book!!

  534. Jennifer Soucy

    This sounds great – I’d love to win a copy and read it.

  535. Stephanie

    Just the other day, a younger friend of my husband stopped by our house to pick something up. He said to me, “Your house is beautiful!” I don’t think I have EVER looked at my house and thought “beautiful” – but this visitor looked past the papers piled in the corner of a bench seat, stray toys on the floor, mismatched furniture in the living room… all the imperfect stuff that I look at and feel critical of myself for… He made me remember where the beauty of home comes from – the people inside, overhearing the laughter of three kids playing together in another room, the simple fact that we have a home! I’d love to read this book. “It doesn’t have to be perfect to be beautiful” really resonates with me. 🙂

  536. Karen

    I recently heard of this book and can’t wait to get it in my hands!

  537. Tina O

    I would love to read this. I love the podcasts when she is on 🙂

  545. Jenna

    Love Myquillyn, and beyond psyched about this beautiful book!

  546. Lisa E

    I would love to have the opportunity to read this book. As my husband and I have recently retired we have downsized and moved into a different home. We are closer to our 4 adult kids and 3 grand kids. Our income is limited and we are learning to love the things we have, and live a much silver life.

  547. Jamie

  548. Rene

    Looks like my kind of book! 🙂

  554. Ronda

    That sounds so encouraging! I am constantly trying to love where I live, even though there are so many things about it that I really don’t LIKE very well. Sounds like a book that would speak to me!

  555. Jessica

    Yes please!!

  556. Ashley

    I have been purging things from my home lately and would love to “pretty” things up after I get what we don’t need OUT!

  557. Amy Huff

    I would love to read it!

  558. MomofTwoPreciousGirls

    I love beautiful books!

  559. Joyce

    Sounds like a book that I’d both enjoy and benefit from 🙂

  560. Tuesday's Child

    my grandmother Mimi taught me to love what you have… I like to think she gifted me an artist’s eye for beauty too…
    I’m grateful for the opportunity to win such an inspirational book combining these two elements.

  561. Andrea

    I need to work on embracing imperfection! Sounds excellent.

  569. Yvonne

    Imperfection? I have that. Learning to love it? I would love help with that!

    Thanks so much for introducing us to Myquillyn! Her book sounds like a breath of fresh air!

  573. Kat

    Our offer on a new house was accepted this week and we are in the throes of packing. It’s so hard to part with things, but we are finding stuff to give away. I’d love some inspiration for the new place from this book.

  574. Jennifer

  578. alison

    I love that you have Tate playing photographer! and as a side note, you encouraged me to take a personality test (ENFP, which was a surprise in many ways) and it was so great to read about myself and be like “this is an actual thing! I am not crazy!” and realize that my traits are a part of a larger whole and that there are others who also have those traits. I guess I can’t explain it properly because making words make sense is not my thing… but it helped. 😉

  579. Annette

    This is on my wish list!

    I’ve been so wrapped up lately in wanting my home decor to be cutesy and pleasing to the eye, all the while missing that my home should be life-giving. This book sounds perfect!

  584. Julie

    Oh, I’d love to read this! A friend just introduced me to it. 🙂

  585. rachel

    Would really love a copy of this book!

  586. laura

    I can’t wait to get my hands on this book. Trying to be content in the land of military moves/rentals can get so frustrating. I look forward to reading about her story!

  613. Emily

    I’ve loved her blog!

  614. debra b

    As I begin the search for another new rental, I would love to read this!

  615. Corinne

    I’ve loved her “content to rent” approach to change as we too have been serial renters believing in the freedom of not being tied to a mortgage but also trying to make a house our home. Each of our homes have represented different seasons in our lives and we are on the cusp of yet another! This book would be a perfect segway into our next adventure! xo

  616. Emily

    Oh! This book looks lovely!

  617. Rebecca

    Love the concept of this book! Looks lovely.

  618. Maria

  626. Anna

    A coffee table book about fostering contentment with one’s home? Sign me up.

  627. Alison Treat

    I love Myquillyn. I heard her speak at Allume a few years ago and spoke with her after her talk. She was wonderfully down to earth. I have this book on my amazon wish list, so I would love to win it!

  628. Erin

    That sounds like my kind of decorating book! It just might be the perfect antithesis to the Pinterest-worthiness movement in homemaking.

  629. Teresa

    Would love to win a copy of this book for my mother!

  630. Stephanie

    The book sounds so lovely!

  631. Tanya

    I have never read a home interior book nor do I look at ideas on pintrest. This books sounds wonderful. Making a home is much more that decorating. I pray I win sounds like a great book.

  632. Amy Ivey

    I LOVE embracing the beauty of imperfection…this book looks amazing…SO beautiful! Thanks for running the giveaway.

  633. Melissa

    As someone who has lived in six homes in five years, is busy with three kids five and under, and has embraced becoming a minimalist (my rebellion, since I come from a long line of hoarders) I need this book!

    Great idea for a book. A loving, warm, inviting home does not come
    from perfection.
