New Year’s Goals

Hello everyone! I’m quickly peeking in to give you a bit of homework while I’m away. :) With this being the last weekend of the year, and January 1st swiftly approaching, it’s time to talk about your goals for 2008. Will you share them here with me?


When you write something in a public place for all to see you’re much more likely to commit to doing it. So if you’d like to use this space as your bulletin board, please do. Comment with a long or short list. I’ll do the same. And there are perks attached because I’ll send a few of you a little something in the mail just for taking the time to comment, a little “I Care” package that just may encourage you to keep your goals in view for ’08.

So if you’d like, and only if you’d like, feel free to leave a comment and when I return on January 2nd, I’ll let you know who will receive little gifties from me. :)

See you soon!

Closing Up Shop {Back on January 2nd}

Hello friends! I’m closing up shop for a bit to enjoy time with my friends and family, so I’ll be away from the blog until Wednesday, January 2, 2008 when decor8 officially turns 2 years old.


Thank you for your encouragement, friendship, and support this year, you have all touched my life by your visits, comments, and emails. I can’t wait to meet you back here in 2008!

xo, Holly

p.s. – While I’m away, please visit some of my favorite blogs and websites on the decor8 links page.


12/24 Update: I couldn’t stay away… Here is a snapshot of my current flickr favorites, I know I show you these from time to time but I think the current collection is just lovely. Click here to see where each of these beauties originate.

Bird Textile {eco in australia}

Tweet! Tweet! Welcome to the eco chic world of Australian design house Bird Textile, a young company with designer Rachel Bending taking the lead on creating beautiful products that are ecologically responsible. Here’s to saving the planet without losing your sense of style.


Rachel is also the mind behind green online boutique Slingfinds, where you can purchase from the Bird Textile home collection. Just lovely. Chirp.


And their fashion photos are equally pleasing with all the great layering, messages, and oh the patterns and the color palette. Best part, nearly every gorgeous fabric shown can be ordered by the yard simply through email. Just contact Bird Textile for more information: info AT birdtextile.com

These make me think (okay yearn, dream, lust for, long) of Springtime, but since warm days are months away, perhaps it’s best to simply introduce these colors in my winter wardrobe to perk up all the gray, denim, winter white, and black I’ve been wearing way to much of lately. Time to add a pink shirt under my gray sweater, or a bright handbag. Same goes with the sofa – add a few bright pillows to spice things up. Note to self: Color makes winter feel warmer than it is.
