Featured at Must Love Junk and Some More News

I’m excited to be featured today at Must Love Junk in Susan’s Saturday Spotlight and would love you to visit me there. I’m sharing a lot of things in that guest post you don’t know about me yet. If Susan’s blog is new to you, please take a look around. Her house is gorgeous and I admire her style very much. She creates fabulous vignettes with vintage treasures and I would love to shop her house or just move right in :). Thank you so much for inviting me to the Spotlight, Susan!

The last two weeks of August had been worrisome for me. First, Barney had been missing for 2 1/2 days and then we found out that he was very sick. I thought he would die and was very desperate. We’ve been in the animal clinic several times with him and thankfully he’s much better now. I’m so relieved. We’ll have his blood values tested again in two weeks but the vet is optimistic that they’ll be fine.

I won’t be around in blogland a lot for the next few weeks because we are in the middle of moving. Our new home is only a few miles away and we don’t need to pack everything in boxes. However, it’s a lot of work and we both already feel every single muscle in our bodies. While moving all the stuff is not so much fun, I look forward to building some furniture together with dear hubby soon :).

Now I’d be happy if I’d see you over at Must Love Junk.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Oh dearest Julia, I can imagine how worried you must have been. Thank God that Barney is better now. Did the vet find out what was wrong with him? I hope it wasn't poisoning. He is such a handsome boy and you love him so much, our fur babies are so precious to us, aren't they? I am very happy to hear that you have finally found a new home though, gosh, its been a long time coming! You DO have a nice big room set aside for your studio, lol, don't you? You did make sure of that?
And how fabulous to be featured on that lovely blog, congratulations!
Happy and stress free moving, my dear friend, xxx

Hi Julia. Thank goodness your Barney is OK. I would also be devastated if one of my cats went missing and was that sick. I loved your guest post at Must Love Junk. It's always so great to learn something new about you. I love that you write in English and envy that you are so proficient in a second language. My own grandparents were born in Germany, and sadly, I can't speak a work of German. Best of luck with your move! XO Sue

Barney is quite the handsome boy and I'm glad that he will be ok. So worrisome when our pets are sick!

Sherry @ Thrift My House said...

I'm glad your Barney is okay. That must've been stressful! Congratulations on moving! A new home sounds so exciting. I look forward to future blog posts about it :-) Congratulations on being featured too! I'll head over to Susans. Have a great day friend!

congrats on your feature! I will hop over there.

I'm so happy you found your Barney, poor little guy. Sending well wishes to him.

Good luck with the move and how wonderful to have a clean new slate to decorate!! Hot bath afterwards to ease the muscles.

I saw your story in the Spotlight today and it was nice getting to know more about you. My Mom made me cut my hair short all the time just like your Dad did. The photo I use on my blog my hair is short but I grew it out much longer since that picture. I am glad you found Barney and he is doing much better now. Our pets are like our babies and it's so devastating when they are ill. I hope the move goes well. Get a heating pad for those sore muscles! Enjoy your new home!

Linda @ Itsy Bits And Pieces said...

I'm glad to hear your kitty is doing better! Headed over to Must Love Junk! Good luck with your move!

Betsy@My Salvaged Treasures said...

I'm so happy to hear that your sweet Barney is back and doing better now. What a scare that must have been. Good luck with the move. I know it's easier said than done, but don't work too hard:-)

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Lovely to see you featured over at Susan's today, Julia! Make sure you take care of those sore muscles!

Patty Sumner said...

Hi Julia,
Moving house is always hard work but worth it when it's all over.
I hope Barney keeps well, that must have been such a scare for you.
So nice to see your comment on my blog.

Liebste Julia!
Nach einem schönen, aber anstrengenden (und wettermäßig sehr durchmischten) Arbeitstag als "Oldtimer-Rallye-Fotografen" komme ich endlich dazu, mich bei dir zu melden. Ich hoffe, bei Barneys letzten Untersuchungen kommt auch nur das Beste heraus, aber du weißt ja, ich bin zuversichtlich, dass er wieder rundum gesund ist! Wie schön, dass er und Cecily sich nun anfreunden!!! Ich bin gespannt, wie deine beiden Süßen mit der Übersiedlung umgehen - hoffentlich versuchen sie nicht, zum alten Revier zurückzulaufen, solche Geschichten habe ich immerhin schon gehört. (Seid also bitte zu Beginn lieber ganz besonders vorsichtig... denn gerade, wenn man im Übersiedlungstrubel ist, kann's sein, dass die Haustiere einen unbeaufsichtigten Moment nützen...) Auf jeden Fall wünsche ich euch gutes Gelingen bei den restlichen Umzugstätigkeiten - und freue mich seh, wenn du uns eines Tages zeigen kannst, wie ihr euer neues Heim verschönert habt!!! Natürlich ist das jetzt eine anstrengende Zeit, aber ich denke mir, eure Mühe wird sich lohnen. (Übrigens spüre ich ebenfalls jeden Muskel und jeden Knochen, du kennst ja meinen Körpereinsatz beim Fotografieren, und wenn man das - so wie wir gestern bei der Rallye - von 8 Uhr morgens bis 22 Uhr betreibt, geht das ganz schön in die alten Gebeine... wie ich bemerkt habe ;o))
Lass dich lieb drücken und gib deinen beidne Miezen liebste Küschler von mir!
Ich wünsche dir eine schöne neue Woche!
Herzlichste Rostrosengrüße,
Traude
PS: So, und jetzt flitze ich zu deinem Gastposting! :o)
