Classroom Updates

Hi All!
I've been pretty lax on this blog lately. I've been enjoying Connecting via Facebook. I would love for you to join me over there!

In the meantime, let me share some shoppe updates.

If you have been to the shoppe or have taken a class or had fun at a Pinterest Party, then you know how "undone" or "makeshift" our room has been. When we opened the shoppe, almost 2 years ago, we planned on using the space for storage and painting, so we left it in the as found condition.
Peach colored walls.
More holes and adhesive than you can imagine.
She's now so pretty in her Dark Pewter.
I had to add a cow!
Our Maison Blanche samples are back up and really pop.

A few more tweaks coming next week. But the room is so much nicer and ready for our many classes and Pinterest Parties!
Open today 10-3 & Saturday 11-4.

Goodies Galore

Hi Friends,
I know this post comes as a shock. It's Saturday for one, and I rarely share information on this day. But, we like to shake things up from time to time.
I'm heading to the shoppe today, we are open 11:00-4:00, and I thought I would share some of our goodies.
And I just received some more treasures!
Hope you have a terrific day and weekend!

Back on the Farm

Hi Friends,

We are already to the middle of the week! Wow that went fast.  
And it means I get to open the shoppe today!
Everyone loved the barnyard bonanza that we introduced earlier this month.

We have restocked the animals and even added a few new ones to the mix.

The big cow on the right started the crazy.  The canvases have all been restocked.

 This set of 6 are darling.  Two new sets are in the shoppe.

And now meet the newest member...

She is so stinkin' cute and the muted colors are fabulous.
Another horse and so many exciting new goodies will be shared on FB today.

Stop in, we are open 10:00-3:00.

Pillows Galore

I learned very quickly that I could not do everything for the shoppe myself.  I have been fortunate to meet many talented people along the way.  One of our most popular artists sews for the shoppe.  She makes table runners, checkbook covers, business card holders and her crazy popular pillows!

I am honored to have her and to have developed a strong partnership.
She constantly changes it up, has done numerous custom orders for our shoppers 
and has does a beautiful job.

Here are some new designs...

The shoppe will open tomorrow 10-3.
I'm off to teach a Restyle Your Junk Workshop!  Can't wait!

Restyled Settee

Hi Friends!

Hope this post finds you well and enjoying another day off from the usual grind.  I branched out this weekend and stepped away from work, the shoppe and the normal routine.  It was much needed and enjoyed.

Right before I left, some goodies arrived.  I will be getting them ready and loaded in the shoppe this week.  Fabulous goodies that I know you will love!

Speaking of the shoppe, last week I brought in a beauty.

Thanks to my talented Amish boyfriend, this beautiful settee looks fantastic.  Redone in a creamy leather, she is perfection.

It didn't always look like this.  I scooped her up several months back and delivered her to Indiana for her restyle.

I think you would agree, she needed a restyle!  
Despite the dated material, you could tell she was in pristine condition 
and was well loved - and rarely used.

She is now taking her spot in the shoppe.

Such a beauty!

Enjoy the day!

Restyling Again

We are always restyling the shoppe. Some days it's small changes, other times we move every piece of furniture. It's based on items that find new homes, the season or my ADD. Here's a look at the latest restyle.
This dresser just landed in the shoppe. She's dressed in Maison Blanche Collette with dark wax and Coffee Bean on the top. She has a lot of personality now!
This China cabinet is a beauty!
This settee is beautiful! I'll be sharing before and after shots soon. She was restyled by my Amish boyfriend in a creamy leather. Fabulous!

Lots of new arrivals are sprinkled throughout the shoppe. It's so fun!
We are open 10:00-3:00 & 6:00-8:00.

Buckeye Madness

Hi All,
I took a short break from painting and restyling to cheer on The Buckeyes Monday night.
It was a great win in the first ever Playoff National Championship. We will always be the first National Champions!
We also left no question unanswered, as we won handily.
While Hubby and I watched the game, every time the ref came on, I swore he looked like Bob Newhart.
Hubby dismissed me.
My kids had no clue who I was talking about.
Apparently, I'm not nuts!

Riding high on little sleep, lots of coffee and sheer joy, I restyled the shoppe yesterday. I'm anxious for you to see the goodies and the new look!
Open today: 10-3

Barnyard Bonanza

If someone told me people would drive hours to get a cow canvas, I would have laughed.
Then I posted my latest score, the cow, that I picked up in Indiana. I proudly hung her in my dining area and enjoy my coffee daily with her.

I was just sharing my nutty purchase.
Then, the bonanza came.
I sourced the canvas and ordered them for the shoppe. I hung them in the shoppe Thursday night.

Crazy happened...
Alright, maybe transforming my shoppe into a farm could have stirred the crazy, but I just loved them all, I couldn't choose.  So I got them all!
Who can resist this cuties?
The good news, if you are just seeing these, I reordered Saturday after I closed the shoppe! I even got a few other goodies I think you'll love!

The crazy will continue tonight in a different way. We will be cheering on our Buckeyes in the first ever National Championship game. We love our Buckeyes! Please tune in and do your part to bring on a victory!

O H .....I O!
