I am making my second stop in my Friday series (Favorite Thing In My Home…) in my dining room. I went in there to take a look around, stand in appreciation of what I have, and pick the one thing I treasure most about this room of my house.
But first, I had to do a little straightening. Because truly, folks, there are a million and one blogs out there showing perfectly amazing women doing amazing crafts and everything always turns out perfectly. And looks beautiful. And if there is one thing I know, it’s that my blog ain’t that kind of blog.
But still, there is a certain amount of pressure I feel to at least have a presentable photograph to go with my post. So dang it, I felt the need to clear off my dining room table (which doubles as my art studio. For more on that, see a tour of my *art studio/dining room* here. Some of the furniture has changed, but I still use it the same way.)
And I don’t mind clearing off a table for my blog peeps… you guys are more then worth it. That, and it was almost dinner time anyway and we wanted to actually use the table.
So here is what it looks like cleared. And you can look far and wide, but you still wont see what my favorite thing is about my dining room today in this photograph. Because today, just for one day, my favorite thing about this room was all of the amazing doodles I spotted as I cleaned it up.
Doesn’t everyone need a Fo Man in their dining room?
Awesome use of this “To Do” pad… because becoming a comic book girl, falling in a toilet, and setting sail on a piece of poop is better then anything else I had planned today!
What did my son write? Laser Hair Removal? This better be a password for Poptropica or something, and not a carefully placed hint… because I *have* been a bit lax about the shaving lately, but dang, that’s cold!
Seriously, there is nothing cuter then finding half backwards numbers on a sheet of paper, doodles of mice eating the food images in a magazine, or a Fo Man peering out at me. Nothing! The things these drawing do to my heart… backflips doesn’t cut it. I look at these drawing and Thank God I have children. And that I can find little gifts like these all over my house.
One of the things I miss most from babyhood is nursing. And I really feel like one of the things I will miss most from childhood will be these doodles. Without them, my house will just feel so…. *clean*. Which might be great when it’s time for dinner, or when you are snapping pictures for a blog post… but not so great when the best part of your life is the little folks who share it with you.
Those doodles… those are my favorite things this Friday.
I am super excited to start a new Monday post series… I will reveal it to you then, but it’s a good one! Have a great weekend! xoxo
