Blogger Back in Town

Yay!  I am back on Canadian soil and it feels good. 

So sorry for abruptly abandoning the blogosphere.  I intended on blogging from overseas, but my computer had other ideas.  It is probably for the best because, while in Hungary for the last month, my desire to read, hear, talk about anything decorating-related really waned, on account of my living in total squalor (see photos below - the Hungarian Scholarship Board lied when they said we would be staying in a "hotel".  Oh well, it was free.). 

I was worried that maybe I lost my mojo.  But, home for only a couple days, I have already cleaned our bedroom closet, photographed a few pottery pieces I bought before I left and contemplated where to hang my Hungarian embroidery piece (I had it framed!).  So it seems there was no cause for concern.

I look forward to blogging (gosh, I missed it and I have soooo many posts backlogged from the summer) and trying to get caught up on your recent projects and fun finds.  Leave me a comment or drop me an email - I'd love to hear from my blog friends!

My room - shared with two German gals. 
One went barefoot a lot.  All day.  On the street.

My little nook - I snagged the bed on its own.

Our disgusting bathroom. 

My closet.  You can see how I gave up on keeping it tidy.


  1. Glad to hear you're home and back to blogging :)

  2. I bet you are glad to be home.
    Yikes that bath looks so scary, lol
    Glad you have your mojo, can't wait to see some new posts.

  3. Oh, my...after looking at pictures of the room in Hungary, I'm sure the townhouse was a welcome sight. So glad you're back and have rejoined the blogworld!

  4. Glad you are back home. :) That is crazy that she walked everywhere barefoot. Ick. Can't wait to see more pics!

  5. Oh, my...after looking at pictures of the room in Hungary, I'm sure the townhouse was a welcome sight. So glad you're back and have rejoined the blogworld! Can't wait to start reading your posts regularly again.

  6. Glad you are home and back to blogging! You've been missed. :)

  7. Welcome back. Don't you feel like there's no place like home? Home Sweet Home. By the way, will you be trying to make that Martha Stewart lariat someday? I am intrigued and thinking of making it.

  8. Thanks everyone!

    Beatrice, I won't be making the lariat. But I did love the colour combo. The lariat is just some ribbon with embellishment. Easy-peasy. I'd love to see you do a post about it!

  9. I have been to Hungary and Romania....I was amazed they use showers with no curtains....LOL You SIT and SHOWER! LOL

    1. I know, the shower curtain in the hostel was for tourists, I think. Lol. I've seen the "shower room" in other European hotels, too. It makes sense if there is a drain on the floor and tiled floors and walls. So much easier to clean . . .


You've made my day - I love hearing from you! I approve comments only to keep out the spam, so don't worry if your comment doesn't pop up right away.
