cleaned up house

Sunday December 28, 2008

Everyday moments are not perfect.

(One of these days I am going to post a slide show of the usual mess our house is in).

But to preserve the pristine image…well, of me, I share a post holiday party cleaned up house!

I will let these photos serve as inspiration every time we let the mess pile up!


Or you can check out the Flickr set of photos.

You can also check out the house a year ago all decorated for the holidays as well!

after, words

As I sit alone, enjoying the last of the fire, I am full. Full of happiness and friendship.

We had our 3rd annual holiday party and it was so so so much fun.

It didn’t matter that I ironed our bedspread this afternoon or that Jake and I were on our hands and knees scrubbing our floors a few hours before everyone arrived. It didn’t even matter because the coats were on the bed the whole night.

It didn’t even matter!

Soullyahn even noticed my “secret treasures” on the tree, he noticed the one thing I didn’t announce but is probably the most special to me.

Tonight was pretty Amazing.

Oh and Judy was a hit! She really is a good good dog. I love her. As the last person walked out our front door she took her spot on the corner of the rug and closed her eyes and hasn’t stirred since. She is probably going to sleep til’ 10!

Friends, family – thank you. Thank you for everything. You know who you are.

tricking people on craigslist

Friday December 5, 2008

Yesterday, I sold two lamps to a woman named Bonnie. She read my Craigslist ad and just loved them! I try to take really good photos of my “products” — to trick people into thinking they are cooler than they actually are…even though these lamps were very cool.

Isn’t that a cute photo? This photo contains the lamp that I sold.

There are some awful photos on Craigslist. People, if you are trying to sell something — REMOVE your CRAP from the something before you take the photo!!!!!

Anyway, I replaced these two lamps with three lamps from IKEA. We set them up last night and they look amazing. I am very happy with my updates. Here is my updated desk lamp.
