Hello there! I’m Kim. Welcome to Feather & Nest.
Feather & Nest is my space to share a glimpse of our country life on the beautiful far south coast of NSW.
I tend to ramble about the things I love most about this lovely life of ours – decorating and prettying things up with reloved treasures, unschooling my teenage son, pottering in the garden, growing veggies, collecting old stuff at op shops and garage sales, cooking and hanging out in the kitchen, taking far too many photos of old things, and cuddling our cute little chickens and goats.
Pete, aka The Weathered Shed and my spunky other half, can also be found here on occasion rambling about tractors, tinkering in the shed, and pottering about on the farm. He’s also a sparky by trade and of course, he lights up my life. Oh, and I’m obviously a comedian. Ha!
Between us we have two nests that we go between – a little tin house with a pointy roof on 3 acres just outside of town and a shed on 23 acres with gorgeous ocean and mountain views. It’s a busy kind of week most weeks as we go from my place to Pete’s and back again. With two lawns to mow and gardens to tend and both places dotted with animals to cuddle we are kept pretty much on our toes. Sometimes we can’t remember who has what in which fridge and it’s a juggle to keep everything running smoothly but for now this is our life and we are trying to live it as simply as we possibly can.
We also have 3 children between us – I have Lew who is 17 and unschooled and lives with us and Pete has Josh, 15 and Jess, 12 who live with us for some of the time.
It’s a simple kind of life that we are craving.
Thanks so much for popping in and we hope that you enjoy seeking the simple country life with us:)
Kim & Pete xx
