It's been a busy weekend.
One of my best friends...
the one & only,
She brought along her sweet traveling companion THE Gypsy Mermaid herself, Sarah!
A couple of things about my girl Jodie,
besides being the most hilarious person I know she's a clean freak!
I say this with total love in my heart, but she is.
Her house....well lets just say it is absolute perfection. There is not a speck of dust, not a finger print on the fridge.
Even her dog Oreo is clean!
Now me.... I have 5 year old triplets, a husband & a spoiled dog.
Need I say more?
So this is why I cleaned, polished & drove my family crazy!
But we had a great visit & Jodie was so impressed with my tidy home she snapped a few pictures for me.
I am in awe of Jodie's talents as a photographer.
I know this post is going to be crazy long, but please indulge me.
She made it all look so amazing!
A favorite book on a favorite table.
The cabinet is a craigslist find, I painted & distressed it.
Now it holds some of my art & beautiful swaps from friends.
Every corner of my home holds treasures from dear & talented friends.
Izzy was not impressed with the fact that a famous photographer was shooting the house.
My angel from Dorthe, she was my first swap!
Pillow from Diane Knotts.
An altered bottle.
Some studio pics.
Hug Snug anyone?
A bag made in memory of my Mom.
Oh yeah baby!
A cone from Ann, up close & personal.
Tools of the trade.
The patio outside my studio.
Am I a narcissist or what?
Izzy finally had enough & parked it on the couch.
Jodie & Sarah hit the road for the long drive back to Eunice.
And me, I just kicked back & lingered in the awesomeness of a clean house.
For about 5 minutes until the Lego's came out!
