With so many fantastic Re-Nest posts this year, it was difficult to choose my ten favorites! The following were those DIY projects, home advice posts and reflections that stuck with me and inspired me to action. Thank you, fellow Re-Nest bloggers! It was super fun writing with you in 2010 and cheers to a happy healthy blogging-filled 2011!

- Re-Nest On...Going Small: The comments that Amber's post inspired are almost just as great as the post itself. Her thoughts about living with less and making smaller spaces work are right on. Why is it always about acquiring more and living bigger? My thoughts on more and bigger...yuck! Thanks, Amber!

- Beautiful Blankets from Old Sweaters: While living in Brooklyn my husband and I put our winter sweaters into storage...big mistake! Almost all of our sweaters were eaten my moths. It was a sad day when we realized our misstep, but Tiffany's post breathes new life into our sad sweaters. Thanks, Tiffany!
