Hello everyone……just a very short note to say hello and wish everyone a wonderful, relaxing and safe holiday weekend. I have had a super busy, somewhat stressful, fun, exciting, exhausting week. Between my son leaving for college, a lot of work, some serious technical blog hiccups, still working on the online shop, gearing up for the first big furniture delivery for the NYC apt job I am working on and a few other things… I am exhausted and needing? a little break from, well…….everything:)

Plus I am somewhat reeling after seeing Halloween candy shelves being? stocked, and it’s not even Labor Day while being reminded? that if I am going to throw a Christmas party I better “pencil in a date”…Calgon please take me away!

The important thing is recognizing when you need a little break and knowing when to step away and totally decompress for a short period…..which is exactly what I am doing. So no online shop launch this weekend, it will wait until early next week when I am back and totally refreshed as will a bunch of other super exciting things coming this way!

Just in case you missed a few recent posts,? here are a few of my own personal recent favorites…….

Wallpapers,? Tole, Brushstroke and Farm stands…

Let’s go to Italy, shall we?

Until? next week…..enjoy your Labor Day weekend. Hope the sun is shining where you are, here the weather has been pretty spectacular.

Teddy will be doing a lot of this……absolutely nothing:)

Going to take a trip to the south–loved your review on your trip with your sister to Charlotte. And also all your followers comments. Can not find it, though. Could you send it to me.
Hope you get that much need break.
I read your blog everyday, and so enjoy it. Thanks for sharing your life, your talent. Have gotten wonderful ideas and have been greatly inspired. Happy Labor Day! Susan

Tina hope you have a really nice and mostly relaxing weekend, sounds like you need the time to just relax.
I am looking forward to seeing the new online shop as I love your products and can’t wait for the tole to be online. So cute to see Teddy! Have a nice few days off.

Tina you are such an inspiring and talented hard working woman, I so look forward to your posts! However, You definitely deserve a break after the last several weeks, I hope you will have a fun and peaceful weekend. Debbie πŸ™‚

Hi Tina, enjoy your time off. I agree important to know when you need some downtime. We are headed to the beach and I am really looking forward to 2 days “off” of doing nothing.
Hope you have fun wherever you are headed. Teddy is so cute. Have fun.

Oh, sweet Teddy knows how to enjoy the Labor Day weekend! teeehee…he has the sweetest face, Tina!

YOU inspire. Your energy level must be high (like mine…I think I drive my students nuts!) in order to do all that you do! A furniture delivery? OH MY! You are treading in the serious waters of high-end design my friend! Wishing you peace as you enjoy your lovely home this weekend! XOXOXO Anita

Tina enjoy the timeoff whether you are headed out of town or spending it at your beautiful home. No one deserves the downtime like you do. I love your blog and cannot thank you enough for all you have taught me and all the great sources you have turned me on to- thank you! You are like the best most fun classroom in the world!

Hi Tina I’m glad that you’re taking a little time to relax it’s really important to take time off to just decompress a little bit. With my crazy work schedule and 50 hour work weeks not being unusual do that periodically myself. We have been at our lake house for the last five days and it’s been so relaxing I hope wherever you are headed is just great. Teddy is so sweet:-)

I laughed about the Halloween candy comment- it is too much! Really all this commercialism needs to slow down. I am barely able to say bye to summer my favorite season.

Hope you have a relaxing weekend- lots of rain headed this way so our BBQ for 14 looks like it will end up being an indoor affair.

Oh, Teddy, he has the life! Halloween candy?! I know!!! I saw it too and thought seriously? Let’s slow down already. Hope you have a relaxing and enjoyable weekend. xoxo

You work very hard and deserve to use this holiday as it was intended – a week end off and to celebrate the toil and work of the past year! Teddy has the right idea! I hope the r & r brings you back as excited and exuberant as always!
