Happy Weekend!

Thank you for joining me on decor8 this week, I’ve enjoyed sharing this space with you and I hope that you’ve been inspired by all of the things you’ve seen and read. I’m working on an American schedule despite living in Germany so I will observe U.S. holidays and take off on Labor Day. We’ll meet again on Tuesday, September 8th. But first (don’t go!) I have a few things to share…

Happy Weekend!

On Tuesday, Leslie will be back with more Color Me Pretty for you to enjoy — wait until you see what she has in store for you this time — you will LOVE the visual feast she has created. I’ll also resume writing Etsy Take Five Tuesdays and Musical Thursdays as well, starting on the 8th. In October, I’ll have a second editor come aboard alongside Leslie and I, I will reveal who she is when the time comes but she has committed to spending 6 months with me on decor8 and to post biweekly so this will be such a lovely addition.

So… I shall see you in just a few days. Make this weekend a good one! Decorate your car with balloons or something…. This vintage Mercedes was decked out down the street from me this past Sunday – don’t you love it?!

    What a fabulous picture and I look forward to seeing who your new editor is… after nearly a year away from regular blog-reading I’ve been leaping back in with delight at all the changes that have happened and am horrified all the inspiration that I have missing out on for so long. Very glad to be back.

    I just stumbled across your blog around a week ago, and it’s quickly made its way onto my Everyday-Reads list! I must admit, I have you to blame for keeping me from tidying the house today, as I’ve been browsing the lovely archives. Now, I’m off to rearrange bits around the living room, because I have complete decor-envy!

    Have a wonderful weekend, and I’ll certainly be clicking over here come Tuesday. :)
