Monday, Monday!

Ah yes, it’s Monday. Welcome, Monday! Somehow that happened and last week was a bit of a blur for me while Boom! a new week is front and center. I blogged quite lightly last week but I’ve been running around a lot and this week it will be very light on decor8 as well since I have a big week ahead of me in Amsterdam (for this) so I won’t be home again until June 27th but you can count on June 27-August 18th (the date I fly to the states) to be hoppin’ on decor8! I have so much trapped inside of my head waiting to burst out to share from things I’ve found to people I’ve met and it’s just a matter of me getting through this week first so that then my calendar opens and I’m all yours again. Just how I like it.


A glimpse into my weekend above.

This past weekend was very nice and inspiring. I did so much that I still cannot believe all of that took place between Friday and Sunday! I went to a few music festivals, a huge outdoor fabrics and notions market (photos can be seen here if you want to know what it’s like), shopping in the city, and I attended a lovely party on Saturday night to send off two friends as they move to America. I also did lots of errand running and chores around the house, answered a ton of email and then spent yesterday with a good friend at an outdoor crafts market (high end stuff, gorgeous!) and we went to dinner at a cute cafe in the old part of our city overlooking a church from the 11th century, which always fascinates me as I come from a relatively young country so the sheer history that I now live around. I also watched a few films, I guess you could call them “fluff” films but they gave my head some room to chillax so I guess we all need the fluff sometimes, right?

What about you, how was your weekend? What did you do? I’m happy to see you again and to get back to blogging!

I’ll be around all day today and tomorrow and I’ll post on Wednesday as well from the train but I won’t be posting on Thursday or Friday so just remember that in case you wonder where I’ve roamed. See you back in a moment or two.

    Hi, lovely pictures…

    I posted on my blog last week: De Nære Ting; sung by Lene Siel. And gave you credit. Found it on Youtube. I just love the song and your pictures. I have no word. Have a nice trip to Amsterdam :)

    I DO think I have to get Instagram – looks mighty fun! :-)

    Oh the weekend (that was too short as always); baking, cleaning, taking photos, reading great blogs, blogging myself, watching Black Swan (way creapy!) and sleeping in and exercising.

    Yep, that was about it. :-)

    Do you know – I spent the whole weekend working – and was beside myself happy to do it. Teaching and making commissions. No children, no hubby, just me and the two dogs listening to Billy Holiday creating lovely things. Big walks and stupendous cake eaten too! Marvellous…..

    Hi Holly,
    Being busy with what you want to do makes for a great weekend doesn’t it?
    I painted a couple of pieces of furniture using Ann Sloan’s Chalk Paint. I can’t wait to post the dresser that I’m working on, I also picked up fabric to make a couple of pillows. So now it’s Monday and I’m back to work, keep on blogging girl!
