All Dressed Up in Antoinette

Sweet Antoinette from ASCP is one of my favorites.  Couldn't resist on this French twin bed frame.
ASCP in Antoinette and Old White.
Clear wax with a little dark wax to show all her sweet curves.
Its a beautiful warm day today. Perfect for some pictures in the yard.
Have a great week!

My Cow Painting

I love the cow paintings missmustardseed.com has in her home and shares on her blog. I have a friend that paints and show him the picture of Marian`s cow painting. I wasn`t sure if he was really interested as "Pete" paints lots of wild stuff. He`s more of a graphic artist. To my surprise a few days later he shows up with this cow painting for me.
I was totally shock when he show me this cow painting. Pete ask me if this was something I was looking for, AHHHHH yes Pete, I love it! I told Pete he could sell these and I would be happy to help him with his sales. Pete agreed and I will have some of Pete`s cow painting for sale soon. I guaranteed no two paintings will be alike. Pete show me a picture on his phone of a small brown calf he was working on and I`m amazed of the talent of this young man. We will have paintings available for our annual antique and vintage show in August at the "Festival of the Little Hills".
Let us all remember our veterans and troops this Memorial Day weekend. Spend time with the ones you love this holiday weekend.

A Little Green

Been working on about 10 different projects all at one time. We have had so much rain its been hard to work outside. I can`t believe its Mothers Day already! I don`t have any flowers planted in my pots yet as every time its nice and not raining I`m at work!  I love making these lampshades and have very few in my house.  I brought a new rug for my living room and went with green. I had two lamps I pick up awhile back I been hanging on to. They were ugly brass and decided to paint them in ASCP Pure White.
The table was my Moms and painted in ASCP Cream and Pure White.
Don't you just love the old bedspring on the wine bottle. Cute vase!
Happy weekend and wish all a
Happy Mothers Day!
