Lorri sent me an email thank you to share with all of you for the many visits and sweet comments you left on her 3 part home tour. It was so much fun. So I share her note and my thanks for stopping by and giving so much support and encouragement.

I would like to thank Celeste for the lovely portrail of my home on her blog. It really was alot of fun to see my home through someone else's eyes.She is so talented with that little camera of hers, thanks Celeste!
Many thanks to all who stopped by and left their lovely comments, it really gave me a lot of pleasure to read them.

Our house had been a rental when we bought it and really was a labor of love to bring it to it's present condition. To those of you who asked the question, is it always that clean?The answer is no!
Celeste and I were originally only going to do a few rooms upstairs and then the day of the photo shoot decided to do the whole house. So there I was running ahead of her at break neck speed tidying and throwing stuff out of view of the camera, that was one for Americas funniest home videos.I am so glad you all enjoyed it and thanks again for stopping by, sincerely Lorri and Ellie.

Thank you Lorri, for a fun day and allowing us to visit your beautiful home.

Hope everyone has a great weekend. I will be back next week to share what I have been creating lately, and some mailbox surprizes. I have also been busy filling the shelves in my etsy boutique and invite you to visit anytime. Till then, I will be in the studio creating and enjoying life! I'll leave you with a peek at a few of my new creations.

Blessings always, Celestina Marie

I can just picture her running ahead of you cleaning and throwing stuff into closets and under the bed! LOL Sounds like me. You did a beautiful job on photographing her gorgeous home!

It sounds like you and your friend had a fun time doing the photo shoot...even if she was running ahead at breakneck speed to tidy up, LOL!

A Hint of Home said...

Hi Celestina,
I always enjoy home tours and loved your friend's home. She was such a sweetie for allowing you to do one.
Your new creations are lovely as usual. You are so talented.
I posted some of the knockout roses on Met. Mon. post. (a couple of posts down) They are growing fast.
Summer time is busy with outside, for sure, but I love all the beautiful colors out there. Have a great week.

What a sweet note from Lorri & Ellie! But we should be the ones to thank the two/three of you for showing us around such a pretty home. Lorri does need a blog of her own, Celeste!! Hint Hint!

Big Hugs,
