I WON.......

I've been a lucky girl lately. I won the Farmer's Market sign from Castle & Cottage in January. Love it! 

Then I received an email informing me the I was the winner of the portrait that Meredith & Gwyneth were giving away by the artist, Sue Scoggins! I just finished searching for some pictures of my 15 1/2 year old long haired dachshund, Boogie.  Love the picture Sue did of Gwyneth! Hoping she can capture Boogie from the pictures I sent off. He's always been a little camera shy, turning away from the camera or else he's snoozing. Will share when I receive it. 

Hoping to have a new project to share soon!

All the rage....

This is a re-post. Somewhere out there is my original post. Not sure what happened to it today (2/16/12) but it's gone and since I just linked up to another party I wanted to get the pictures back out there. I've had a lot of views to this post already and some wonderful comments which is nice. Thanks for the comments :)

Back in the summer I decided to update this chest with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. ASCP was all over the blog and I wanted to try it. After searching and searching for the paint I finally found some. This was my first attempt and it is so easy. It took me only a few hours to do. I chose Duck Egg Blue. I literally "slapped" the paint on. It dries very quickly so I did a second coat and then distressed it some. I used clear and dark wax and then buffed it. If you haven't tried Annie Sloan Chalk Paint yet, you should!!
