Good Morning Monday!

Good morning and happy Monday to you! It's a new week and with that we have the possibility of new beginnings. My week will be crazy, as I will be on the radio (FFN) and in the April issue of Myself magazine that will hit newsstands on Wednesday (3/17) and I'm excited (and a bit anxious!) about both! I also have several meetings concerning two projects I'm working on that I can't wait to share with you -- I think I'll be able to announce one later this week and the other possibly next week. The news is quite big so I'm eager to share it.


By the way, these are the forsythia branches from last week (remember this post?). I decided to place them in a vintage ceramic vase and hang ceramic acorns from them. Here it's common to have these branches in the home this time of the year with eggs hanging from them. I decided to do my own thing and change it up a bit.

Also, in case you've been wondering, we've not found a place to live yet but I'm hoping to have good news in the months ahead because living full-time in a vacation apartment in two rooms is a challenge with both my husband and I working from home. Thankfully we get along well - but space is really an issue! I also feel ready now to start replacing all of my furniture that I sold to move over from the states. I had some nice mid century pieces and a beautiful sofa and well -- lots of things that I miss! And while IKEA is great, my current apartment was only meant to be for our vacations here so I filled it with rather inexpensive finds at first but now that I'm here full-time I want some vintage pieces again, and a really comfy deep sofa.... and wallpaper and drapes! I'm ready to plan and decorate a space as I feel as though we're still in limbo. I have 50% of my belongings still in the cellar which is also a problem -- I don't want my art and books and everything else to get musty so we're eager to move. The excitement of finding a nice flat though is thrilling -- you know, the thrill of the hunt!

Right. So that's how things are for me. What about you? How is everything going?
