House Proud on Nate, Furniture and Bridesmaids Order

Nate Berkus showed the cutest home on the House Proud segment of his show today.  The owner is Joanna Madden and when I googled to find pics, I realized I have seen her home before in Country Living magazine.  She designs and has a jewelry business called Findings and her and her mom have a shop called Summerhouse.  She is great at arranging collections of her finds in her home like the vintage suitcases, mirrors and pottery!

Here is a piece I am working on for Ashley.  She was trying to get a neutral color to go in dining room and I got Natural Linen by Glidden and I really like it.  I was trying to show the color but it doesn't show up so great in these pics...

Sorry for the bad pics today but this is a shelf I am selling to another dealer but I was trying to find a paint for the piece and had a tan color I didn't like and several craft paints so I started mixing and came up with a sort of gray/taupe that I really you have some paint colors you don't like or aren't using, you might trying mixing and see what you come up with!

Here is a frame order I recently did (I hadn't added the twine yet in this pic) for bridesmaids gifts: a fun mix of stripes!

I took some more frames to Spoonful of Sugar at Mount Laurel this weekend and here are some pics from the shop...
