Painting & Projects

Hope you all had a great weekend!  My weekend is technically still in effect since I have tomorrow off - woohoo!  I had a good block of time yesterday to do some painting.  No before shots to share - dang it!

This is my favorite piece:

This table must have been someone's favorite because it was taken to my booth today and already sold!

As is often the case, after I spend a long time painting I get the urge to work on other types of projects.  I completed this fun Valentine's window today.  

You may remember that I did two different Christmas windows - see here and here.  What have you been working on?

Mid-Winter Antiques Show - Brenham, Texas

Hi friends - hope you have all had a great weekend!  I had a great weekend that included a junkin road trip with mom and getting to finally meet a treasured blog friend!  We hit the road before 6:00am on Saturday to travel to Brenham.  We knew that Theresa was going to be a vendor at the Mid-Winter Antiques Show and I've been dying to meet her for so long!  Theresa was one of my first 4 Followers and let's just say I only had 4 for a good long while.  She was very helpful to me in getting my blog started and I've admired her displays  since I started blogging.

Speaking of her displays - check out her awesome space:

Me and Sweet T!

I was also excited about visiting Brenham because I have heard so much about Leftovers Antiques.  I must say - everything I've heard is true.  It is amazing - 10,000 sq.ft. of the grandest scale items you may have ever seen.  Mom and I just kept talking about the scale of the doors, the chandeliers, the furniture - everything!  I didn't take many photos - I think I was in some sort of overload shock!

We left Brenham after a great lunch and made a stop on the way home in Navasota.  We loaded up on more treasures in that small town and drove home pretty darn happy with our day of junkin!

Playing Catch Up!

Hi friends.  Gosh I feel so out of touch with my blog and my blog friends!  The Holidays were hectic and then I lost a week of my life battling kidney stones.  Not good Christmas memories for me this year!  I have been working on some projects but I've been bad about getting photos. 

I do have a photo of this great console that I completed prior to Christmas.  I used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Paris Grey and Graphite.  I failed to get a before photo but it started out hunter green and honey oak - need I say more?  I think it's a great size to hold a flat screen television.

Mom and I spent this past Sunday moving into a larger booth at The Antique Gallery in Lewisville.  We think this is one of the best spots in the mall and we were excited to relocate.  Here are a few pics of the new space and also of our other spot in the mall - come see us!

And lastly, am I the only one that is ready for Spring?!
