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.
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.

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.
