Friends who decorate

I am blessed with a friend who is artistic, great at decorating, AND generous with her time. The way she shows love is by coming over to your house with her tool kit, usually with a bunch of frames and knick knacks in her trunk, "just in case" there is a corner in your house somewhere that needs something. Not to mention, she is really fun to hang out with. I LOVE having a friend like that.

A couple of weeks ago she and I were brainstorming ideas for the girls' room. (Hope and Ava share a room). I asked Hope how long she would like to share a room with Ava, and she said, "For 99-99-9-9-9-9-9-9 years......FOREVER." :)

Anyway, Nancy asked me to email her a picture of the 3 girls together for an idea she had. A few days later, look what she surprised me with! She got this canvas "with an ugly picture on it", she said, for $12. She told me to "just paint over it" when I'm tired of it or want a new look! There is NO WAY I am EVER painting over this. Isn't it wonderful??? I find myself wanting to hang out in the girls' room just to look at this beautiful picture.

By the way Nancy happens to have her own decorating business that she runs with a friend of hers. If you are local and need some help these two ladies do a really, really great job!! THANK YOU NANCY!!

I love it!!! Wish I had an ounce of that creativity. Maybe when I get a real house that I am allowed to decorate, I will get her name and number.
