To Hell With Housework


To Hell With Housework

Here is another favorite picture I took of my sis. She is an awesome model! I am so lucky that she likes doing our photos.
I also really love that she is co-opting a picture of my Crabby Old Grandpa from years ago at a family party. My other sister took the picture, he was standing near the sink holding a knife and yelling at one of us kids. We all love that picture because Grandpa used to fight everybody at family parties. He would pick on something, say you're wearing pink shoes, and then bug you about it. I think it was his way of "paying attention" to the grandkids. Also, if my brothers were being lame, and not helping out, he would yell at them and give them a hard time. For all his crabbiness, I miss my Grandpa very much. He was a funny guy. He was generous. And he kept the family together by all the parties he and my Nana used to throw.

I love it when you take pictures in your kitchen (or whoever's kitchen it is) - I love the backsplash. I want that in my house!

Thanks Lindsey! It's my kitchen. Im glad you like the tile I choose. It's iridescent glass tile and was worth every penny. I'm glad I didn't try to go too cheap. It was easy to install too. (According to my friend Pete who did the tile job for me. )

How lucky to have such a willing and photogenic model handy. I would love to have someone willing to coorporate with me for photo shoots. I'm stuck with my boring mannequins.
