Christmas staging

Last night my BFF Maire Ferrini called and asked if I'd like to work with her on staging a Bed and Breakfast for a photo shoot today.
These are the before photos of the McClelland Priest Bed & Breakfast in the Napa Valley, California.
Furniture was edited. Chochkies eliminated.
Paintings rehung. Curtains re-draped. Place setting arranged.
Greenery cut. Silver polished. Tinsel tossed and ribbons added.
We then packed up our plastic bins and headed home.
You see Marie and I share bins of stuff.
Actually that should be our business name,
"Bins of Stuff".
I buy and share with her goofy stuff and she buys and shares with me. Therefore, we own lots of "stuff". For some reason knowing she has "stuff" too gives me some kind of satisfaction knowing I'm not the only one with this obsession.
Come to think of it, part of my addiction to blogging is the fact that most everyone of my blogland friends has this compulsive hobby also!
