I’m taking a wee break—nothing’s wrong, I’m just super-busy and distracted and not really in blogging mode lately. I’ll be back soon, I promise!

    It’s summer! Blogging is for bad weather and filling the lull. Maybe I’m just making excuses for my own lack of posts.

  • Reply Amanda Nicole July 15, 2009 at 12:40 pm

    I hope you have some fun in the sun!

    Enjoy the hiatus Anna! I am shure I speak on behalf of all your readers when I say that whenever you are ready we’ll be more than excited to read your new posts!

    Take the time you need Anna! Enjoy, relax, read, sleep, go out and then come back to show photos and tell us stories.
    We will miss you.

    Big kisses

    we’ll be waiting for you! relax and enjoy…!

    That is the advantage of you having an “ad-free blog”. You don’t have to answer to your advertisers when you don’t have time to blog or just want a break.

  • Reply Sue July 19, 2009 at 3:39 pm

    Have fun on your break, can’t wait to see what’s been going on when you are back to posting. 🙂

    relax! i’ll miss your posts!

    Way back in the day I stumbled upon Absolutely Vile and thought that I had found a kindred spirit. Life got in the way of my blog reading and when I went back to check up on you found that AV to be no more. Now, some time later I stumbled upon D16 and am thrilled to find you are in a new home, virtual and real. Enjoy your time away from the blog, but do come back soon.

    Enjoy your vaca — I miss you but of course you need to take a break every now and again.

    And it’s still raining.


    We had like a nice 4 days this past week and now it’s back to 66 and rain. Sux.

    How are you?

  • Reply Ashley July 23, 2009 at 10:42 am

    Come back soon! I love love love your blog!

  • Reply the domestic fringe July 24, 2009 at 12:42 am

    Ok, I’m loving your blog. I just spent the last 1/2 hour reading through many of your posts. I am in the middle of a house project in upstate NY and just uncovered wood floors that are in less than pristine condition. I’ve toyed with the idea of painting them white and you’ve given me the inspiration to go ahead and do it. I absolutely love the look, but wasn’t sure of the practicality. I guess I’m throwing caution to the wind.

    You’re doing a wonderful job with your home!

  • Reply call-me-Heidi July 24, 2009 at 4:39 am

    I’ll be waiting!

  • Reply Lori July 28, 2009 at 5:32 pm

    Aw man, where are you?? 🙂 I can only flip back and forth between e-mail and facebook so many times… LOL Enjoy your break. 🙂

  • Reply bridget July 28, 2009 at 7:53 pm

    Hello! Just came across your blog from….Apartment Therapy? Flickr? Can’t remember. Anyway, I LOVE it!! It’s my dream to live in an old house with a lovely modern interior. You’ve given me so much inspiration. Thank you!!

    Looooove your dogs!

  • Reply Catherine July 29, 2009 at 5:33 am

    I walked past a girl with The Dreaded Stitch in the hem of her coat this morning and thought of you. 🙂

    Hope you’re enjoying your blog break!

  • Reply Tamisha July 29, 2009 at 4:26 pm

    Enjoy your break. Love the blog and check on it frequently. We purchased a fixer-upper in Richmond, VA about two weeks ago. We’re still in the “demo” stage and pulling paneling and wallpaper. You’re the inspiration behind my decision to keep the windows. I can only hope to do as good of a job on them as you did on yours.

    This is one of my favorite blogs. Been checking it everyday and I miss it very much. Have a great vacation Anna – we miss you!

  • Reply Karen July 31, 2009 at 8:27 am

    Miss you and your wonderful blog. I know it’s hard and you should take the time you need – it’s been over a year for me. Some days are good, some days it just comes over me in a huge wave and it’s all I can do to breathe. It doesn’t go away, but it gets easier. Take care of yourself!

  • Reply Dan August 1, 2009 at 12:47 pm

    Hi Anna,
    I know you’re on hiatus, but when you’re off hiatus, can you perdy please do a post about your mice? I feel like I know Bruno and Fritz so well, but those mice are so mysterious!

  • Reply Emily August 2, 2009 at 10:16 pm

    I hope you’re having a great break – the Internet is boring without you!!

    It seems so strange but obviously this not-being-in-blogging-mode has happened all around! Happened to me too, but I blame summer 🙂 Good to have you back!
