Up on the Farm

Visiting my old stompin' grounds for a long weekend. Looking for our first Iowa mini-stockist for Annie Sloan Chalk Paint while here. Scouting will take me to surrounding towns. Meanwhile, discovered that Rolfe Iowa has all day garage sales today and tomorrow....ummmmmm. Hubby may need to bring the truck up here tonight!

Meanwhile, things have been a bit wild on the new business front. Great sales of paint and antique mall items. Look at this sweet table I finished Saturday and it sold on Wednesday! Duck Egg Blue, distressed and clear wax.

Then I had the itch to paint again on Monday and created this little table finish with my first attempt at a stencil detail. Provence with Emile inside the drawer.

Meanwhile, I had picked up for $2 a hand embroidered piece of satin that had a lovely peacock design. Very folk art and in a tacky metal frame with no border. It deserved better. And amazingly the blue was exactly the teal color of Annie Sloan's Aubusson. Too bad we don't have the Barcelona orange yet because this bird included that too. So Aubusson, Old White and a touch of dark wax ----

No glass, just letting the natural beauty of this shine through....Like this morning's sunrise on the farm. Ahhhh....
