Personal Photos....(Via Made By Girl)

This post was supposed to be for May 12th & it WAS UP (for a few hours) until Blogger decided to do maintenance for an entire day in a half & DELETED it along with the 60 comments! Sorry if your comment got deleted, but please feel free to comment again.

Thanks to Christie from Chic Love blog who was nice enough to send the post (I thought I'd lost) to me via email (she had it in her reader)! Thank God! I'm sending Christie anything she wants from Made By Girl she wants as a thank you!!
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I love it when bloggers post PERSONAL photos of things they own or just pictures of inside of their home. Know what I mean? I find it intriguing to see what people own, what they buy & even what type of dog they have! Nonetheless, it's just a small & narrow window into their lives. 

How about you? Do you enjoy looking at these types of photographs on blogs? 
Even though we shouldn't always judge a book by it's cover.... you can kind of tell (by looking at my pictures) that I pretty much enjoy shoes, fashion, art, jewelry & doggies!  But, I'm far more than what you see in these photos & I'm sure other bloggers you follow are also much more than what you see & read.  


This is just a very small snippet of my life. Hopefully one day I'll add a baby to these pictures....


Ikat shoes by Enzo Anglioni



An 8x10 painting I did - soon to be available at Cocoa & Hearts




Python business card holder & leopard wallet- I'm in love with leopard print - as if you couldn't tell.


A few of my necklaces. My favorite is the cross with the purple stones.


Marc Jacobs handbag hanging in my dressing area.



A painting I originally did for Cocoa & Hearts, but I decided to keep it.  It's now hanging in my bathroom.


One of my boxers....she loves sleeping on her sheepskin




my handy dandy closet- super convenient.


new (earth friendly) business cards...

 
A white boxer I had a few years ago - she passed away in 2006 - I miss her so much.



One of my current favorite design books 'Undecorate', fresh carrot juice & a small Cocoa & Hearts piece I made. Will be adding some similar 8x10's soon to the gallery!

  22. Love this post. I have been trying to share a little bit more lately too. I started a new "fashion focus" serries showing styles/jewelry/clothes I'm wearing. It's been fun.

    ReplyDelete
  23. It's so nice to see bits about the person behind the blog!
    Jen, you are such an entrepreneurial/creative inspiration.

    ReplyDelete
  24. yes! my favorite blogs are those that let us into their home and give us a snippet of their personal life. so....envious of your closet and shoe/boot collection. jen over at "i heart organizing" gives a great idea for boot storage. take an old magazine and roll it up and slide it into your boot. an instant boot shaper! of course, i haven't done this yet, i need to....but seeing your sweet boots in your closet made me think of it. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  25. I love personal photos - that is what makes blogs so great!!! So excited to see pieces you've painted in your home. Will you post about the piece you kept in more detail? I'm so curious to see it hung up.

    ReplyDelete
  26. please do more of these! I agree I love to see glimpses into other artists lives... your work is BEAUTIFUL jen!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Most of us love to take a peek at other people's belongings or new purchases because it's fun and intriguing at the same time.

    By the way, I love your ikat print shoes, the decorative coat hook, the painting and of course, your fabulous closet!

    Good post, thanks for sharing!

  31. Oh! You would be the perfect person to ask! I lost my pup a few months ago and am missing having a doggie in my life. I've always loved boxers but never owned one.. obviously you're crazy about them... what are their positives and negatives (if any!)

    ReplyDelete

  49. RADDESIGNING:

    Pros- they are very affectionate, they aren't barkers, really dont bark that much at all unless someone is at the door. They love to play, very smart.

    Cons: They are not guard dogs, if thats what you want. They will bark at door but will want to give the person kisses when they walk in ha!
    They don't live as long as some breeds, most of my boxers have lied up to 8-9 yrs old, even though they can live more than that ....

  50. LUCIANE: Thank you! :)) Enjoy your day too!
