A new addition . . .a lovely gift idea!

One of our most popular and radiant lines that we carry both online and in our store is Mariposa. They offer something for everyone and for every season. Their line is extensive and includes price points for all occasions.
Mariposa recently introduced a collection of notepaper holders that we're all excited about -- in fact I think half of us at the store have bought them for ourselves and/or for gifts already. We offer 4 styles adorned with the Fleur de Lis, Dragonfly, Pearl or Pineapple weight. Also available are a Pear (Jenny, our Store Manager ordered 2 of these -- they're great!) and a Golf Ball that we are happy to special order. The 4 we have are in stock now and available both in our store and online at $48.

These pieces make wonderful gifts, particularly for the person who has everything as they are both beautiful and useful. They are also great options for office, hostess and thank you gifts. We think you'll love them as much as we do!
One last thing to note, Mariposa's products are aluminum, made by artisans in Mexico and 100% recyclable. A gift you can really feel good about -- for yourself or someone special.

Lucas the Tin Dog - a favorite new find!

Today I met with one of our most favorite sales representatives and reviewed some of his new introductions for fall.

One item that I just had to get for the store was this whimsical tin dog, "Lucas." Not only is he fun and a little funky, he serves a purpose (which fulfills both of my feng shui requirements . . .either have to love it or it must serve a purpose). As a magazine holder, he would definitely make a statement in any family room, study or even powder room.

Lucas won't be arriving in our store until October but we can always place special orders to come sooner if you too find that you just have to have him in your home!

Save $50 on our Design Services!

From now through April 30th when you book an in-home consultation with our designer the charge for your first hour will be $75 . . . a $50 savings. We just sent out an email to our customers this morning so if you haven't yet signed up for our email list, here are the details!

Spruce up your home this spring and save! So often we hear that our customers need help choosing accessories, paint colors and lighting fixtures, determining the best layout for their room and deciding what size furniture their space can accommodate. Let our in-house ASID certified designer, Dana Keegan, help you with everything from the finishing touches to complete room makeovers.

How does it work?
Our designer will meet with you in your home to understand your project requirements, discuss your goals and the area(s) on which you'd like to focus.

What's the cost?
Our standard in-home consultation fee is $125 per hour (typically 1-2 hours) but when you schedule an appointment now through April 30th (to take place by May 31), the charge for your first hour will be $75 . . . a savings of $50! If you decide to utilize our services, Dana will generate a design "game plan" at $125/hour. The total price is determined by how much, or how little, help you need and will be approved by you before the process begins.

The best part?
When you work with our designer, you will be able to take advantage of our designer discount program where you'll receive 15% off of all regularly priced merchandise from The Nest Egg that is recommended to you by our designer. If you know there are items you are interested in purchasing, the 15% savings can easily balance out the design fees.

How do you sign up? Email or call today for more information or to schedule your in-home consultation. We know you'll be glad you did!

Rug Promotion! Free 2x3 rug with the purchase of a larger rug.

We are excited to announce a new promotion running through the end of May. With the purchase of any 3x5 or larger rug, you will receive a FREE 2x3 accent rug of choice or a free rug pad (same size as rug purchased). Our 2x3 rugs sell for up to $85 so this is a great deal!

If you haven't seen our rug selection, please check them out online at We have samples of each rug in our stores and you are welcome to check them out to bring home and match up with your decor.

Company C rugs are hand made of 100% wool. Three constructions are used to create the designs: hand hooked loop pile, hand tufted cut pile and hand hooked/tufted combination. All rugs have hand sewn edges and cotton backing for improved quality and durability. Their colors are vibrant, their styles are fresh and their quality is exceptional.

A new rug is a wonderful way to spruce up your interior and completely change the look and feel of your space. Stop in and we'd be happy to show you some of their new introductions as well as our tried and true best sellers. Hope to see you soon!

Placemat Samples Have Arrived!

We had one of those "why didn't we think of this sooner" moments yesterday when our samples of Karen Lee Ballard laminated placemats arrived. We've been stocking their wonderful placemats for a few years now but typically only have 8-10 patterns in stock at a time. There are over 50 patterns to choose from and we finally had the idea to ask them to send us one of each. We now have a sample of each pattern in the store for customers to see. This way you can find the perfect match for your kitchen and/or dining room decor. You can also check out samples to see how they look in your home before you buy. We even have a few wonderful beachy patterns that are great for beach houses or to give as gifts for friends in Florida, etc.

Check out the whole collection at and please stop in at our Fairfax store to see them in person. The new Perrenial Lane Honey is my favorite and the new Dahana Coral would be really fun for summer. Our customers love these placemats and so do we. They are especially great for kids because they wipe clean and best of all, they are made using beautiful fabrics so they are not only functional but they are a great accessory!

We're Back!

Oh my, can't quite believe it's been over 3 months since our last posting. Yikes. The holiday season kept us busy, thankfully, and now we're back to our normal routines with time to post.

Unfortunately we missed both the Atlanta and New York markets in January but we are fortunate to have wonderful sales reps who can bring lots of merchandise to us to review so we'll be receiving a steady stream of new products over the next few months.

In the past week we've brought in a beautiful collection of wall plates (http://www.tamsandesigns/) at our Fairfax store and we have a supply of plate racks that can hold 2, 3 and 4 plates. We've also brought in a new floral line ( at Fairfax that creates wonderful arrangements. We've chosen a few clean arrangements of orchid watergardens, bamboo and rosemary. They're another option to supplement our fabulous arrangements by NDI ( This time of year is perfect for bringing in an arrangement to brighten up your home.

Also new, we've included a slideshow (see right) of our in-stock merchandise. We hope this is a great way for you to view what we have in the stores from the comfort of your home (or office . . .if it's a slow day). If you see anything that peaks your interest, please call or email ( us for information on pricing, sizing, colors, etc. The Brambleton slideshow is live and we hope to have Fairfax up by early next week.

We hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season and is enjoying the freshness of a new year!
