Happy Weekend!

It’s weekend time! Yay! I just love summer weekends, don’t you? What will you do? Road trip? Beach? Flea Market? I’m heading out for a few days, mostly likely going to the coast, so I’ll see you back here on Monday.

This photograph was taken in our backyard by my husband Thorsten. We both love bees, this worker was quite active on our highbush cranberry shrub the other day. Go get ‘em little guy. :) Notice the two large pollen sacs on each hind leg? I love all the details from the little fuzz to those tiny wings. There’s even a little pollen on the booty, shake, shake! Cuteness alert!

Talk to you soon, and have a lovely weekend!

Just a little note to say that I’m back from vacation. I missed being here to meet with you each day but I needed some offline playtime. :) I hope you are doing well and for those in the states, I’m sure that the long weekend felt nice for you. Did you do anything special?

Pretty things collected from our yard today.

It’s so good to be back, I’ll see you in the morning. :)

My New Blog

I’m not replacing decor8. But I feel the need to create a more personal space, where I talk mostly about my own life. And that can really bore people which is why I don’t talk a lot about my personal life here.

I was planning to wait a few months to reveal this, but at the rate in which I’m posting over at my new blog I fear that if I don’t tell you soon you’ll have to scroll through tons of archives. And we all know that old news isn’t the same as fresh stuff.

What is my other, more personal blog about?

You’ll have to click on over and see for yourself.

I wrote 11 posts already to make up for my lack of posting on decor8 yesterday and today. :)
