My Fine Feathered (Nest Boutique) Friend

Hi Readers!

Happy Monday! I'm so excited to continue my non-traditional Gift Guides and introduce you to the incredible Feathered Nest Boutique! This online shop based out of Athens, GA has captured the hearts of monogram lovers everywhere and I know YOU are going to fall in love with it too!

I met Kathryn (Keith as she's known to friends) by chance via Instagram and I tell you, I've never seen a harder working woman! I asked her a little bit about how she got started and what inspires her. Here's what she told me:

"I started FNB five years ago after struggling with major depression after losing both of my parents. It was a way for me to create, focus on something positive, and start interacting again after two years of battling depression, anxiety, and panic attacks. I started making purses but soon fell into a passion for monograms and decided to open an Etsy shop. I had five items then, now it's become a home-grown business that I can't quite believe! I personally make each and every item and absolutely adore creating pretties for people. And while I still prefer to 'hide' behind my screen, I love being able to interact with customers through my Etsy shop and social media. Baby steps!
I was surrounded by strong, creative Southern women growing up who taught me to sew, work hard and never give up. Whenever I hit a wall with FNB, I think about them and how they would attack it. My mother was an amazing artist who, in the 1980s, had her own counted cross stitch business. I was able to work national trade shows with her and learned to always strive to provide the customer with more than they expect. That's why I include my handmade hair ties with every order - my little way of saying thank you!
My Daddy was a third-generation farmer who gave me my love of all things Southern, and I'm actually in the process of rebranding my business and changing the name (hopefully in the Spring!) to honor my Daddy and our family's farm."

Today, Kathryn creates everything from graphic tops to scarves, totes, hats, and koozies, including an exclusive Southern Girls Collection. You'll be able to find something for every gal on your list at Feathered Nest Boutique, and I've attached some of my faves for you to check out below. Show Kathryn some love y'all!
