I feel like I need a little R&R at the moment from the blog.
So much is going on right now and I seem to be getting no where with it.
Not only that, I am getting bored with a few things and feel the need to re do them and hopefully re-ignite the creative spark in me.
I hope you understand.
See you soon!
Ness xx

    Oh I so hear you Ness. I’m constantly bored and struggling for inspiration and marvel at the fact that people still visit me while I am marking time through a dip in my mojo. Time out really helps…. go yonder. A-M xx

    Can you tell me where to find a round linen skirted tablecloth as is shown in the Cote de Texas blog about Sally Wheat’s home?

    AWWWW come on. I’m kidding. I love your blog and get so sad when I check on it and nothing new is there. I understand(I don’t have a blog) but remember there are people out there like me who live to check on their lovely blogs. Have a nice reprieve!

    Ness enjoy your R & R we all know how you feel. We just had a 5 day break away from home – no work for Max, no kids, no grandkids so no stress. Back home and feeling much better mentally and physically. I think we ‘ladies of all ages’ put way too much pressure on ourselves and let others take us so much for granted.

    Dear Ness,
    Apologies from me too. I have not been the best blogging buddy of late. I seem to have been very busy and had a week with my sister. We are also off to Italy in a couple of weeks, so I will be all behind with my comments again !!!!
    It really doesn’t matter as real life has to come first and thre are so many things that need doing. We did gardening this weekend for what felt like the full 48 hours !! I ache all over !!
    You must get all of those things done that need doing. Real life has to come first ! XXXX

    Having a break is always a good idea. Life should come first and I hope you will have a fun, refreshing and inspiring time off.

    Indulge your self with a long wanted gift! Do something you haven’t done in a while. :o)
    We all need to be filled up with some new energy and inspiration. I tend to find them in everything but interior or design. Ha! For me it is vital to have brakes from design (and sometimes from my self), to be able to create and be creative.

    I wish you a good and needed brake, Ness!

    Hug from,
