Girls, Girls, Girls

Whew what a week, does anyone else feel that way? I really don't have anything to post today but something has been on my mind this week and it kind of ties in to what I am working on- girls rooms. So here are some "in between" pictures of current projects.

It all started when I talked to my best friend this week- we hadn't talked in a few weeks, which is rare for us, and it somehow ended with me giving her a 20 minute dissertation on the woes of shipping in the design world. Does she care about a table in Memphis that was promised to be here last week only to be back ordered until May? No. But she listened to my rant and that was more therapeutic than anything else in the world.
(headboard is done but that is all, this picture is from one of the bedding brainstorming phases, it is going to cute, but not what you see here)

A month ago I was in Memphis sitting at Houston's with a great friend, Jenny, and that lunch is so clear in my head because she is an amazing listener. I was able to just sit there and talk about business going well and future plans, etc. and it is nice to do that with someone who really cares about you and your life (it is also a plus she knows the entrepreneurial woes).
This came yesterday for a client- the nursery was finished a while ago in aquas, greens and browns but we thought it would be cute to have a little pink. I can't wait to see it up (especially since the sweet baby has already arrived) but I think it was worth the wait. Here is what it will look like....
Then this week someone said something to me that was rude and inappropriately timed, and since I was unfortunately born sensitive it was bothering me until I got to one of my fabulous clients homes and being around her made me feel so much better. (I don't have the source for the room below but I think it is a great girls room)
Anyhoo, all of this to say, I am so thankful for all the women in my life and thank you to all the "listeners" - such an amazing quality to have.

Wow, did that really just come from sitting down with nothing to post about?

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

I had dinner with one of my best friends last night after having a terrible day at work Wednesday, so I understand what you mean! It's so nice to have good girl friends that can listen. I hope I'm as good to them as they are to me!

By the way - I love all the sneak peeks! The headboard is amazing!

sometimes we just need to vent, take a deep breathe and power on through. We bloggy friends are great listeners. Have a great weekend.

I'm sorry to hear you had to deal with a rude comment this week, but how wonderful that you have such great friends to listen and really care about what's going on in your life. Every woman needs a solid core group of girlfriends!

(Oh, and I love that last picture, the headboard is divine!).

that 'bird cage' light fixture...great!

My Interior Life said...

I agree - girlfriends are the best. Especially the ones who are good listeners! Makes our troubles melt away sometimes.

My hometown is Memphis so I got a kick out of your Memphis references. I miss Houston's. We used to have one here in Nashville, but now it's something else.

I love that little girls room! Such a great color palette.


Whenever I'm talking to a really good listener, I think to myself, I need to be more like that.

Melissa @ Veranda Interiors said...

That light is just precious! Oh how I wish I could do a room in pink for a little girl...I think I am destine to have all boys, and pink doesn't fly for them. ;)

Stephanie Sabbe said...

love it all! can't wait to see it installed

{Amanda} said...

Well it sounds like you have a great set of friends who are good listeners and will encourage you too- phooey on rudeness but glad your client's home got you out of the funk.

Love that little girl's room & can't wait to see the room with your headboard.

My mom and I have that kind of relationship....she always listens to me when I have a problem and when I feel like venting...it really is great to have people like this in your life!

What a lovely girls room!
Happy weekend to you.

Brooke said...

One good rant does deserve another! Plus anyone that knows you, knows that you don't complain or vent often so when one springs, what kind of friend wouldn't lend a helping ear!?!?! Love all the pinks, remind me to tell you later about the girls room idea/dream I got the other day!
lots of love, dewwwwwwwww
