For the Love of a House

One of the blogs on my blog list featured pics of this beautiful house - the blog is!

Cute New Pieces in Booth! (SOFA TABLE SOLD)

Adorable White Table

White Distressed Sofa Table (this table has an uneven surface on the top piece but if you put a runner on it, it is beautiful! (I will try to add prices on the blog for these two pieces a little later - I can't remember exact prices I put on them yesterday!)

Chalk Paint

I have been hearing so much lately about chalk paint. I think this paint helps you achieve the look of old painted furniture and I've seen some great painted furniture on different blogs (especially Miss Mustard Seed). I haven't tried it yet but have heard great things and I have heard that a retailer is coming to the Birmingham area soon who will sell the chalk paint and waxes. I found these pics on Urban Barn's blog - they are going to be offering an Annie Sloan Chalk Paint workshop. If I get more info. on where to buy it in Birmingham, I will let you know!

Some Pics of Booth at Encore

I made a bunch of frames and small items to have for the trunk show so I had some to put in booth - if you need a baby gift, wedding gift or just something for yourself...!

Another Trunk Show on Sunday!

Here are the hostesses of the trunk show, Shannon and Sarah Beth. The show was at Sarah Beth's cute house!

Sarah Beth had done some cute and creative things in her house and this was my favorite - she took an old door with glass panes and added 4 vertical picture frames with newborn photos of her daughter and hung with ribbon .
