Au Revoir-

Before & After

We have a full shoppe-lots of new goodies!  We have a burlap wreath Pinterest Party tonight & we have finalized our fabulous May schedule.

We've been busy!

I leave for a bit, flying out tonight. As I said before, anytime I depart, I work like mad to get things done. 

You'll see this beauty in the shoppe.

This piece was restyled with Maison Blanche Hurricane paint.  A dark wax was applied for protection and depth.

The top is stained with Maison Blanche Tobacco Glaze and finished with a Matte Varnish.

I love that our Maison Blanche line offers so many finishing products. It allows us to be uber creative!

This beauty is in the shoppe with lots of other treasures!

OPEN today 11:00-8:00.

Good Day Columbus

We have an exciting week!  It's a personal celebration that has me over the top with excitement.

I can't keep a secret, so I'm sure I'll spill the details soon.  Needless to say, my enthusiasm and attention is on this. 

Just before all big things, I scramble to get organized, stock the shoppe and plan things out.  I am feverishly finishing things and promise to share new goodies tomorrow.

I was fortunate to appear on Good Day Columbus on Friday. 

I'm so glad we were able to demo Maison Blanche Outdoor Paint before people tossed their worn out furnishings. It makes such a difference & saves you money, just by restyling your goods.

Here's the link they sent me.

As always, I get to complete a Pinterest Project. They actually time me, so you can see how long it takes!

Thanks for popping in. I can't wait to share lots with you this week!

Spreading Spring Happiness

I love when the sun shines. My mood is fabulous and life is good.

I spread my happiness throughout the shoppe.

These darling rain boots are perfect for flowers.
Spring pillows have arrived and are sprinkled throughout.

Our fabulous candles make the shoppe smell fantastic. New scents are here!

I'm back in the shoppe today with more spring goodies.  I will be prepping for Good Day Columbus, Fox 28. Tune in tomorrow-Friday, April 17 at 9:00am.

I will be restyling outdoor furniture and planters with our new Outdoor Paint by Maison Blanche.  A Spring Pinterest project will also be featured!

I'm excited and hope you'll tune in!

Open today, 11:00-8:00.


Before & Restyled

I grabbed a table last week, while picking some other goodies.
I hadn't intended to grab the table, it just sorta happened.  The story of my life!

Anyway, it is structurally sound, just had been well used.  We love that around here and embraced the imperfections.
We went with a pop of color and heavily distressed it.

It celebrates Spring in its new paint color. Priced at $89, it's perfect for an outdoor dining spot, kids craft table or as a desk.

Open 11:00-6:00 today!

Buffet Progress

Happy Monday!

I hope it's a great week! Sending good vibes to all of you.

I'm excited to share a "progress report" on a cool buffet I scored last week.
With Hubby out of town last week, Daughter #1 and I unloaded this right into the shoppe. It is a solid piece of furniture, we can attest to that!

You know by now that things don't stay unpainted for long around here.

On Saturday, between customers, I busted out Maison Blanche Hurricane paint.
This color has grey and beige tones.

While one side was drying, I played with Dark Wax.
It's coming together!

I love that I can use Maison Blanche paint in the shoppe-no VOCs and you can put down the brush and come back to it later.

I hope to salvage the top, replace hardware and put her in her place this week!

Have a marvelous Monday!

Customize Your Furniture

We have a few beautiful pieces of furniture that are slated to be restyled this week.
This beautiful buffet is waiting patiently. You can select the color and finish. We will completely customize it to your liking.

This antique radio cabinet is up first. I'm thinking Wrought Iron, dark wax and LeDirt.
However, I'm offering this as is, or as a custom piece.

Hurry, I can only hold the paint off for so long!

I'm in the shoppe today, 11:00-4:00 and I'm in my paint clothes.

Shoot us an email, if you are interested in either piece, we are happy to finish it to your liking!

You will see...
This versatile sofa/drop down table has been restyled and is sure to please.

But wait, there's more!
This curved entry table, lowboy is dressed in Franciscan Gray as well!

And then you'll find this wardrobe, restyled with a soft distressed finish.

I look forward to your visit today, 11-7!

Creating Sunshine

Since we returned from vacation, I haven't seen the sun.  Not even a glimpse of that warm, ray of happiness.

I felt the need to add some cheer in the shoppe.

I started with the front door. This old umbrella filled with bright tulips now greets you.  The color just makes me smile.

Come on in and see the new goodies, smell the spring scents and feel the warmth in the shoppe!

Open today 11:00-6:00!

Sweet Savannah

A few years ago we drove to Clearwater Beach.  The 17 hour drive landed us in Atlanta at 1:00 am. We were exhausted and cranky. So when we hit traffic, Hubby and I lost our minds. Our language was vile and I'm surprised we are still married😃.

It's taken 8 years for me to climb in a car for a long ride. And, I flew to Florida, so I only had to endure the return trip.

We have learned from the past.  We broke up our return trip with a lovely day & evening in Savannah.

This is a beautiful city, filled with a blend of trendy and historic sites. 

I want to live here!

All 4 of our phones were dying, so our pictures are limited.
I wasted my battery life on the exquisite chandis, moldings and other architectural details.

We loved our trolley tour, the haunted adventures, the history, a wonderful dinner on the river and our quaint hotel.

I will be back, maybe not to reside but a longer visit is calling my name.

The 11 hours home were torturous but I was still pleasant from my Savannah stay.

Back to work...reality today. I'm done sharing my adventures. On to painting & restyling the shoppe!

A Week Away

A week away sure helps the mind, body & soul!

We escaped to Anna Maria Island for spring break. This has to be one of Florida's best kept secrets. 
With no commercial shops, hotels or restaurants, we escaped to a quaint town filled with mom & pop shops, local eateries and a beautiful home with all the necessary amenities, including a pool.
We met up with my brother and his beautiful family for the week.
We enjoyed beautiful sunsets and beaches. We embraced our family and our blessed life.
While Hubby spied a future shoppe for me...

He was also planning his retirement. Hmmm...
But like all good things, it must end.
So, I will be applying my relaxed, re energized self to restyling my shoppe!
Cheers to a great week!
