Enjoy The Weekend!

I’ve really enjoyed our week together, thank you for your visits, comments and general amazingness! This week has been busy for me but I went and got myself a nasty little head cold so I had to lay low today as I’m finally starting to feel better after a week of moaning and whining… so I chilled a bit today because I need to get my energy up — I’m moving next week and so there is no time to be sick!

Happy Friday

I found this image in the latest copy of VTWonen, a Dutch mag that I subscribe to, and I just love the idea of taking tears from magazines to form a house-shaped inspiration wall. Fun! It also put me into the “moving into a new house” mood. I went into the new place a few days ago to measure the windows and have a general look around and I left feeling so inspired and happy because I really “feel” this space. I need to pack and get things organized because I am just dying at this point to move in. So, that’s what I’ll be up to this weekend in addition to some fun social stuff that I have going on.

What about you? What will you do? Want to come help me pack? :)

See you on Monday!

    Good luck with the move, Holly! I can’t believe how much you’ve got going on right now — and still you put out that same happy-but-calm energy. :-) It gives me something to aspire to the next time we have to pack up. Can’t wait to see all of the inspiring things you’ll do in the new place!

    Wow. We are living parallel lives right now…I just came down with a head cold and I’m moving next week, as well. I’ve been doing everything known to mankind to fight this puppy. Can not get knocked down! Hope you feel better and have a successful move!

    I always used to have magazine images all over my walls growing up. I miss that – I started feeling like I was too old to do it or something silly like that. I’ve recently started doing it again (though not in a house shape but that’s a neat idea!) esp. since my apt. is so bland!

    I am an expert mover, and have it down to a fine art (my husband’s job requires us to move every few years). I’ll come help you pack if you help me figure out how to pull my livingroom together (we might get to stay here for a while). Deal?

    I am a master packer! Really. We moved a lot as kids and it’s a skill which really improves with practice. Enjoy!

    I’m off to Origin (the design fair) in London today – must jump in the shower and onto the train. Enjoy your weekend Holly!

    Love the inspiration house, it looks really pretty too. This weekend I’m also relaxing, might do a bit of crafting too, visit my new house to see the progress made, the roof will be going on next week, watch out on my blog for updates. Can’t wait for your move and to see all your interior design come into play. Enjoy the weekend :)

    Sure thing – I’ll come and help you pack :o)

    We went to Zweibrücken today to visit a small but nice Herbst Garten Markt. Tomorrow I’ll be making cards for a Danish charity organisation and day dreaming of redecorating my home (seems I do that last bit non-stop at the moment).

    I will help you unpack, I am an Army brat and we move fast, fast. Although, my hubby is sick too, weird time of year to have a cold…I think you should move slow, slow and take care of yourself. (Can’t be sick for your next adventure!

    I actually love packing. (strange, I know.) I am moving myself from Seattle to Chicago. How about if I come to Germany and help you pack and then you come to Seattle to help me pack. Hope your on the mend.

    I had to stop by and comment. I downloaded the Flipboard app for iPad last night and Decor8 has never looked lovelier. (and it was pretty lovely before). Total eye candy and fun to read.
