A Girl's Best Friend

The "Best Friend". The ultimate "BFF". Every woman has her Go to Girl, her midnight phone call "He's such a beast!" BFF and of course the "Girls night out" friend and the "Shopping trip!!" (in giddy Reese Witherspoon voice). What would we girls do without each other? How do you choose the perfect match to that Coach purse or the the movie star sunglasses that just coo "Limo, please..." and not scream "Large bug"!

Ah yes, best friends, fuzzy slippers and sinfully rich chocolate. Absolute bliss!


 Desperate times call for desperate measures. There are, on occasion, situations, that need a bit more brute strength...shall we say? While anyone of my dear friends would rush to my aide sometimes a woman has to go beyond the manicure (gasp) and take hold of a "Best Friend" with a unique style. That's right...Sporting a fringe-y new hair cut, a bright orange one piece, and the ability to rip a tree apart, one of my new BFF's

I know, I know, I couldn't help myself. I used to be a big fan of the "Tim Allen Show" so I wanted to pay tribute from a girl's perspective. Part of my creative process is to be a bit silly. I find it really broadens my understanding of what I'm doing.

CedarBerry is on a beautiful site of almost two acres. We are covered in gorgeous Dogwoods, Cedars, Pine and assorted other trees. Lovely, except when you have an ice storm that lingers causing the landscape to rearrange itself. One of the challenges for us has been to clear a patch of fallen trees and the growth that found it's new home there.

Of course, this means a hefty chainsaw or two and the better part of a day. After the gloves, chainsaws, Kubota tractor, weedwacker, lemon-aide, bug spray, and relocation of one friendly, slithery critter we are the proud owners of much needed fire wood for winter and a soon to be grassy lawn.

The space turned out beautifully! Well worth the effort and hard work. I will confess.. I never did get to use the chainsaw. Hubby is the brute strength, not I. But she is still my BFF at CedarBerry!

Too funny. I'm terrified of power tools....I need to get over that! I've had a few encounters with power tools and their cords while working too fast. :) The book was Pottery Barn bathrooms....I've seen it at Barnes and Noble and Pottery Barn store too. Great series of books.
I think you're right on with the mirror....but the pocketbook is nearly empty after this bath redo...so I think I'm going to have to run with it.

Love Pottery Barn everything! Will check out the book. The next "toy" I want is a trac-hoe. Scary, I know. Maybe a pretty blue one.
Be sure to think about your curbside shopping:) I bet their is a mirror or "frame" for a mirror that has your name all over it!
Out of town for a week or so but will catch up when I return...
