{update} Happy Weekend!

I am signing off for the weekend so I thought I’d take a moment to wish you all fun times spent with friends and family over the next few days. Monday is our 7th year wedding anniversary so I’m taking off to enjoy every second of it but Miss Becky will still meet you here on Monday morning with her weekly Design Star Dish and I’ll have a post up on the same day (early morning) at Real Simple. I’ll meet you back here on decor8 Tuesday with a new week of posts and news about the inspiration pack giveaway. I’m still creating the ‘inspire’ packs but they are coming along just great and will be ready next week. Yay!

{updated} — I wrote August 28th below and this is totally the incorrect date. I mean JULY 28, as in TWO WEEKS! :) In other news… The new decor8 is almost ready to be revealed! To sum it up, I’m moving the blog from Blogger to WordPress, adding lots of new features, and promise that when you stop by on August 28th (possibly sooner) you will like what you see. I’ve listened to your opinions on past surveys and have incorporated nearly everything into the new design. I can’t wait to finish this 7+ month project. Yay!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Writing, Writing, Writing!

I’ve been writing a lot over at Haus Maus today and I wrote a piece over at Real Simple that you may be interested in. Topics include kitchen design, cute ceramics, and a few good shops that ship globally. I’ll be back here to blog this afternoon so stay tuned!

Shop Orla Kiely Online {big news!}

This is highly dangerous news. I never thought the day would come when I could announce this on decor8… But I’ve been wishing for it for years now… The availability of Orla Kiely in the states, online, with reasonable shipping rates. They’ve just launched a brand new site for both International and US shoppers and I couldn’t be happier. They have everything available. Stationery, bags, clothing, it’s all there and waiting for us to pounce. They are currently adding their home collection so stay tuned for that.

I placed a bag in my shopping cart to double check shipping costs before writing this to make sure that what I’m stating is true (pinch me, it is!) and to FedEx a bag to New Hampshire was only $15. When I tried to shop them before a single bag was over 50,- pounds (nearly $100 USD!) to ship. Also, all of the prices are listed in USD. This is huge news people. I can’t wait to see what they stock in their home section. I’m hoping for throws and pillows…

See you on Monday!

It’s been one of those days my friends. Thunderstorms, power outages, internet connection out for several hours… So I shall return to blogging on Monday, July 7 since we have a holiday here in the states and I plan to spend a long relaxing time away from work to enjoy every moment of summer that I can. Though the entire time promises to be gray and rainy, I plan to cherish the moments indoors anyway. I’m off to light candles, play some Beirut and Edith Piaf, and make Thai food. I have a craving for something spicy with mango. Have a lovely time off!

7/3 update: i’ve blogged a little over on my more personal blog called haus maus today in case you care to peek in over there…
