Hello Everyone,

After a lot of consideration I have decided to stop blogging.  It is time to move on to other pursuits and - sadly - this is one thing I need to leave behind to make room for other dreams...


I started this little blog on a snowy winter day in Munich in December of 2009, never imagining all of the great things that it would bring to me.  I have connected with many like-minded design enthusiasts around the world that made me laugh, think and grow my design-self. I have made so many wonderful friends - both virtual and in person - via this wonderful community of ours!   I hope I have brought something fun, interesting and/or inspirational to each of you as well!  

I am so grateful for all of the warmth, support, loyalty and enthusiasm all of you have shown me.  Thank you so much for following along on this journey with me. I will miss you all!

Warmest Regards,

Dear Barbara, I know that this was a tough decision for you. I will miss your voice in blogland, but I'm glad that you will be taking that time for other things in your life. I'm very thankful that we've been able to connect and look forward to seeing you soon. XOXO Jeanne
PS: I'm doubly glad we had our lovely dinner last week - now it's like we were celebrating all you've accomplished with your blog, and this new chapter in your life!

I will miss your always beautiful, inspirational posts, Barbara, but I understand how all-consuming writing a blog can be. I wish you the best as you move on to other adventures. I'll remember you fondly each time I look at the lovely items I have from your Etsy shop.
XO, Victoria

Barbara, yours was the first design blog I started following and I loved our collaboration.

Your unique sense of style has inspired me more times than I can count and I have always admired your natural grace.

Good luck in your future endeavours, friend. Thank you for everything.

Adrianne said...

I have so enjoyed your blog and all of the beautiful images and inspiration you have provided. Best of luck to you in your future endeavors!


Marivic said...

Blogging does take a lot of time and sometimes dilutes actual experiences when one is thinking "I'll blog about this and say.." instead of actually being in the moment. I totally understand--but you will be missed!

Go forth and pursue your dreams! Thanks for all your blogposts and the inspiration.

Barbara, first thank you for sharing your talent of blogging and style for choosing some gorgeous photos. Your posts are a beautiful timeless book that I will refer to for a long time. I have to say if you ever want to post (twice a year...maybe) I will be here. I wish you all the best in your present and future endeavors. Will miss you :) -Monica
