I am still here
I am sorry I let so much time go by since my last post. It has been a busy month for me working with A Primitive Place Magazine. I love it ,not complaining just the reason I have not posted.
I was lucky enough to be chosen the "winner" of Misi's give away with my last post which made me feel more guilty when I have skipped the last 3 weeks. I will post a picture once I receive it.
I went out with Linda Behind my red door to a shop new to me,Mill Town Primitives. I had heard much about it but never made the trip.
These are the only pictures I took but if you click on Linda's blog title it will bring you over to her . She took many great shots inside as I shopped and talked. Two of my specialties. There were many things I would have loved to bring home and I do plan on going back. This is what I did leave with.
The little pillow to put on my bed and the wool tool. I have a set already but as most people now know I do not like to have just one of anything! Here is the set I already have displayed with wool. I will do another display like this for my bedroom near a make do chair.
On another trip out with my mother I picked up these great cups and saucers.
I love consignment . many stores are doing it now and it is wonderful. I scored all 4 pieces for 14.00.Yes can you believe it!!
This is my latest project.
I love to be thrifty but splurged with the paint. I love how every ones things are turning out so I had to. However at these prices I bought the steps one At a time and waited. The pepper corn(black) and toner at one shop set me back 51.00 then the chipping cream 16.95 finally the pumpkin paint 33.50. I only paid 20.00 for the table I am painting!!! I love it but will not be re investing ..just to rich for my blood.
Wow does the toner change the look!! It looks great but was it worth the money???
I also picked up this old little kitty. I just couldn't resist the sweet face.
Hope you all are well. I look forward to going and catching up on your blogs.
