Chalk Paint® Anyone???





In a nutshell....

Give a new life to your furniture, cabinets, 
or anything that will sit still long enough :))

                                                        * No sanding
                                                        * No stripping
                                                        * No priming
                                                        * No kidding

It's amazing

You have to try it
You'll LOVE it
I promise

If you've never heard of it, google it.

~ Unexpected Changes ~




Oh where do I even begin!!
~~~~~~~~~~~
It's been a CRAZY rollercoaster ride
for the past few months.
Although it feels like it's been at least a year!!

Let's see...
My husband and I celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary :))
I turned 41 and my baby turned 21!!
Not quite sure how that happened...
I feel like he should be starting kindergarden!!

Ummm.... what else....
Oh Yeah!!  We opened our shop again!!!
Not really what I had planned right now,
(I was actually planning on being in Round Top right now)
but never the less,
we're open for business!!
I have been wanting to post about it for sometime,
but it seems everytime I sit down with my laptop
I fall asleep!!
So anyway, yes, we've opened our doors and we are
welcoming customers with open arms :))

I am really am excited about it,
just not the way it all came about.
I will spare you all the "day time soap opera" like details!
Just know that this was not my planning,
but I know that God has bigger plans than I do,
and just like every other unexpected event in my life
I have faith that it will all work out and be a HUGE blessing :))

In the process I am learning more about myself
and others while having my character tested to the Nth degree!!
So it's all good :)

But I would love for y'all to come visit our little shop!!
It's located in the heart of Old Town Spring.
(Just north of Houston)

OMGOSH!!   I forgot to mention that we're selling

ANNIE SLOAN CHALK PAINT!!

I'm working on our website now so you can even buy it 
ONLINE!!!

It's still "under construction"
but I would love for ya to stop by!!
It's going to be great :))
Lots of photos will be coming soon too!!

Have a wonderful day!!

LOVE FROM TEXAS!!

Show Me How!!! ~ Friday ~ Tips, Tricks, & Tutorials ~No. 2 ~

Wow!!  What a wonderful turnout we had last week!!
Thank you so much for your participation!!
I hope everyone is ready for another awesome party :))


Everyone had such great ideas,
I had a hard time picking "My Favorites".
But I thoroughly enjoyed reading each one that was linked up!!

I had planned to post one of my own along with "My Favorites"
but it has been one CRAZY week!!
So I will just link up my Paper Peony tutorial again ;/
I know... L~A~M~E~ but hey, I'm only human, lol!!
Sooo much going on that I need to share but not just yet!!
All in due time ;))

Jana wrote an awesome three part series all about
Starting Your Own Antique Business!!
 


Rosemary shows how to achieve the look of stone here.

 


Christie gives a step by step tutorial on her
Dollar Pail Project here.
 


Abby shows you how to make these sweet lil' Tie Top Dresses here.


 


Kristy show us her Chalk Paint Record Cabinet here.
I so need to try this stuff :))
I'm usually the last one on the bandwagon, lol!!


 


And last but certainly not least!!
Rhonda gives a wonderful tutorial on Caning here.

 

THANK YOU SO MUCH TO EVERYBODY WHO PARTICIPATED!!
Even if yours wasn't listed,
I really did enjoy each and every one :))
And I cannot wait to see what y'all come up with this week!!!
THANK YOU AGAIN!!

Here's the rules (gotta have 'em, right ;))

But they're pretty minimal!!

1. This one is the hardest for me because self promotion is not on the top of my list of things to do everyday, but being in the business I am, I'm learning that it is important.
So here goes.... Become a "follower" of my blog and
"like" me on Facebook, whew!!
Thank goodness that's over!! Seriously!


2. Place something in your post linking back to my blog and mention the link party!!
I'm working on a button but it's not quiet there yet!!


3. Keep it family friendly!! Anything that is hateful, rude, or crude will be deleted at once!

4. Be a sweetie and check out some of the other posts
and show some love (leave a comment :))

5. Don't limit yourself!! And have fun!!

See ya soon!!
LOVE FROM TEXAS!!!

~ White Christmas in July ~

I love Christmas!!
It is by far my favorite time of year.
I treasure the memories (good and sad) of the past.
So today I'm thinking a dose of a
cool white Christmas is what I need :))
How about you??



These were taken at our old Shoppe.
It was so beautiful!!  I absolutely loved it!!
The table and bench above is one that my brother made :))
(his website is on my sidebar)


It looked and smelled heavenly!!


 

It's almost like a dream now.....
But a good dream :))


 

A hall tree that my brother made :))
(below)


 

We served wassail and cinnamon and sugar cookies!!
More of my favorites!!


 

I would love to take these ice skates
for a spin right about now, lol!!
 

Makes me cool just thinking about it!!



Stockings hung from shutters and doors
instead of mantels here :))


 

 And even though it is only July
it will be that time before you know it!!


 

Hope you enjoyed the tour!!
I'm looking forward to this Christmas for sure!!
I have some wonderful news to share
but I need to wait just a bit longer :))
(no, I'm not expecting, lol!!!)
Just in case you were wondering!!

SHOW ME HOW!!! ~ Friday ~ Tips, Tricks, & Tutorials ~ No. 1 ~

Hey everyone!!!
Sorry!! 
Late for my own party!! 
I'm pretty sure I'll be late for my own funeral too, lol!!
Seriously, just ask my husband!!

Welcome to my very first linky party!!
I am so excited to get this party started!! 
I am looking forward to seeing all your
Tips, Tricks, and Tutorials!!


I recently contacted Sumo of Sumo's Sweet Stuff and
asked permission to use her tutorial on how to make a strip blanket.


Thankfully she said yes!! 
I love these little blankets!!



And her tutorial looks like
we should be able to make one in about five minutes :)) 
Wouldn't that be nice!!
Thank you Sumo for letting me feature your tutorial!!
Here it is:
Strip Baby Blanket Tutorial

Hop over and take a peek AFTER you link up to the party :))

So here's the rules:

1. This one is the hardest for me because self promotion is not on the top of my list of things to do everyday, but being in the business I am, I'm learning that it is important.
So here goes.... Become a "follower" of my blog and
"like" me on Facebook, whew!!
(if you're not on Facebook YOU NEED TO BE :))
You don't know what you're missing!! 
And it is so simple!!
But if you're not, and don't plan to be just leave me a
sweet lil' comment saying you "LIKE" me, haha!!
Just kidding!!

2. Place something in your post linking back to my blog and mention the link party!!
I'm working on a button but it's not quiet there yet!!
(Anyone know of a good tutorial :))
3. Keep it family friendly!! Anything that is hateful, rude, or crude will be deleted at once!
Warning:  Spammers and yucky people!!
God is watching you and He watches over my blog!!
So beware :))
(I am His child and He is fiercely protective over me)

4.  Be a sweetie and check out some of the other posts
and show some love  :))

5.  Don't limit yourself and have fun with it!! 

And that's about it!!
Remember, you can even link up things you've made to SELL!!!
But it has to show HOW you made it :))

Have fun and I will see you soon!!

LOVE FROM TEXAS!!!

My Garden Collage


Welcome to my garden!!


These are some of my favorite photos of the flowers that
I've taken around my home
 and my mom's home.
The roses in front of the
rusty iron gate are from my mom's garden.
Her back yard looks like a park!!!  No joke!!
IT'S AMAZING!!
I will do a post featuring her yard very soon.
Some of the flowers in the collage are ones that I've made.
You can see my tutorial here.
