waiting is the easy part

these are liz’s new shoes. and pillows. who is this liz?

we’ve been bff’s friends since ’93 when we met on 9th street where we both had stores. we actually came down to florida together the first time so long ago, and even rented some places together over the years. we’ve lived, traveled and worked together, and are basically just like sisters (even the fights)! somehow karma is bringing us together again, we’re both excited after 4 years to see why! she has amazing taste and is a stylist so there’s always plenty of shopping going on and something new for inspiration. (or to borrow :)

i figured i’ll keep posting her place since it’s easier to shoot and mine still looks exactly the same…till tomorrow that is! the waiting game is finally over, pros are coming to clean and wax the floors! i’m excited on one hand and so sad on the other.

i’ve come to know a little community here, my italian landlord, the old lady next door, the beach itself just outside. but i know it’s a good move for me, tho i’m going completely on instinct. here goes nothin…or a lot of something…here’s to the future!

    Sounds like a great friendship!
    As everyone comments on the shoes & the cushions, I’ll say the leg isn’t bad, either ;)

    beautiful pics! Liz is very talented! I’m trying not to be envious of your location ONE BLOCK from the beach. :-) Ah well, will live vicariously through you!

    Dear Claudia,
    So grateful your sister~friend Liz moved to town. When I move to Texas, my sister~friend Noelle will be only 3 hrs. away. Richard Bach said our “true” family is not necessarily our blood family, but the people we choose to as our family (my paraphrase). The fact that you have a kindred spirit so close is a gift! Her house is beautiful and I KNOW yours will be magnificent!!!! You have the best taste! Mike talks about it all the time!!!
