missed YOU! and PPF

"Bless me Father for I have sinned and it has been 6 months since my last blog post" ... can NOT believe my last blog post was September 2013.  Guess I got caught up in Holidays and snow and family and life and loss and gain.  Also fell into the trap of … it’s so much quicker to just drop a blurb on fb …  I’ve missed it here … missed all of you … missed visiting your places and sharing your experiences.  I’m back and will make the time.  I didn’t stop painting … paint is still one of my favorite things!  Missing Paint Party Friday too ... Happy 3rd Birthday-Anniversary-Blogoversary to PPF!

I’ve been playing with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint mostly and here are a few of my finished pieces (18 ASCP projects so far …)
an old wooden tray buried in my parents basement

the vanity mirror my sister and I had when we were teenagers

a $2 solid wood dark brown tag sale candle holder

old dark brown wooden ashtray table

old wooden sewing box my pépère had built for my mémère

a thrift store cradle

the hutch my husband built with his dad a long time ago reminding him always of the 1st baseball game he attended with his dad back in 1964
my mom's old pine lamp

my mémère's wooden treasure box

an old family piece painted for my sister for her 'quilting cave'

a mirror for Stef

now I am off to catch up and visit YOU!


  1. welcome back, you have been productive! Nice pieces.

  2. Well I'm glad it's not just me whose been missing in action for the last few months-I've not been to the party since before Christmas! ! I love that chalk paint-those things you've repainted are fantastic-i especially love the ones with the letting -is it a type of stencil? Such a great collection of shabby chic furniture and bits and bobs that would look awesome in my cottage! ! Do you sell these or are they all for your home? I imagine things like that would alk well on etsy. X

  3. Good to see you back and with all those fab pieces. Happy PPF, Annette x
