Where I have been...

See this house?  We bought it June 14th at auction.
Anyone who knows me, knows I have the worst neighbor in the whole entire universe.
I have lived in my house for 20 years, raised my kids here,
assumed I would die here...after Leo moved out, and I retired from bar-tending,
I finally had 
Priti Studio.
But the neighbors...and the cops made us bid on a house at auction.

I have been working like crazy ever since.

I even forgot to mention...
(well, actually, I promised I wouldn't)
but I am an abusive mama...
Mia won the Talent Show on June 9th. I am proud.
She is embarrassed.
But you will love to watch :D

The prize was 2 tickets to Hershey Park...bleah bleah.
and this trophy...

I have more to report,
and extra prayers to say...
for IMGirl, my friend, my sister, Kim.
Why the heart problems?
You all will be fine, just keep believing,
and dreaming...
and making those dreams come true!
(even if it seems selfish)
It's good for your heART.

I will show you all the work I have been doing...to prove I am not idle :)
But I keep forgetting the damned camera!
Please don't forget me!
But if you do....
I'll win you back.
Cuz I am nice.
And on account of the Mafioso...

PS: special thank you to my friend Joe the Spado Man,
visit him
he is so kind, and interesting and enlightened...and
I bet he loves spaghetti :)
Joe, thank you. ♥


  1. Lisa!!!!! That's a cutie of a house! I hope you all are happy there and have good neighbors.

    Mia......OMG girl.....you rock!!!

  2. Lisa, so good to see you post on your blog! Your always awesome and so is your daughter, congrats on all your battles and competitions won! Your both superstars! Glad you got away from bad neighbours! Loads of love! Julie

  3. Prayers and good positive thoughts sent in your direction to be used where needed, for your sister, for your new home, for anything. Take what you need and pass the rest on.
    Mia's movements are fabulous! Just to remember what to do next is astonishing to me, let alone actually dancing. Congratulations on winning the contest.
    Thanks for the mention, but I am really just so proud to display your art work. Thanks again for allowing me the honor.
    I don't think I'd worry about being forgotten. (But I know a few people too). Can you say cement shoes? Chicago River?

    Much Peace

  4. Oh I LOVE your house, you can tell from the front it has SOUL- how fun to get to create a new home! And yes, yes a lot of WORK but exciting too! I hope you'll share pictures when you guys are all settled!
    'Grats to Mia for a well deserved win!
    Stephanie P.S. Can't wait to see the art you've been doing.....

  5. Wow, Lisa! That is a lot of change! I hope your new home brings to to a peaceful, creative place. So wonderful that a path has opened itself for you in this way.

  6. yea! what a darling house. and you were right, I did love watching her, such a talented beauty! xox

  7. Oh, this house is amazing!! I'm so happy you can say goodbye to your terrible neighbors. Well, I hope you don't even say goodbye, they don't deserve it. It looks like a charming neighborhood too. Congratulations! and I'm wishing you many happy years here! (You aren't by any chance closer to me now, are you??)

    Mia is so graceful and fabulously talented. And not to mention, gorgeous! It must have been difficult to dance on the grass where the surface is not perfectly even. Congrats to her for winning...I enjoyed watching her dance. She knows her mama loves her, which is why you HAD to post the video! LOL!


  8. Oh my goodness! I'm so happy for you and can imagine how delighted you are to move. Now can we see some pictures of the inside?

    No need to send the Mafioso for me, I check here every day, I'm patient like that :-)


  9. Your daughter is very graceful and talented. I loved seeing the video of her. No wonder she won. Congratulations on Mia and also on the purchase of your new home. I'm sure you will decorate it in Priti Lisa fashion. I only replied so you don't send the mafioso out after me in Virginia! LOL.
