A Vintage Market

A Vintage Home is holding A Vintage Market. If you are in the Lower Mainland area and love Rustic and Romantic you will love this venue at the Historic Clayburn Schoolhouse, March 7th 9:00 am to 3:00 pm.



You can read about the vendors and see some peeks at the goodies you can find at A Vintage Market. (see links above).

March 1st

We celebrated DS's birthday Saturday (although his Birthday was Friday). He picked his favourite meal. I added tulips.


February has been mild on the lower BC coast. Garden clean up has been 'sweater weather' warm. Peas are planted. Seriously thinking about putting sweetpeas in as well even though the package says April.

Thanks for visiting.

Small Changes with Chalk+Clay Paint

Turquoise appeals to me.  I picked up a fresh can of CeCe Caldwell's Santa Fe Turquoise Natural Chalk + Clay Paint Wednesday afternoon. I have some small wooden pieces to paint and my old can was finally finished. The first project was to repaint one of my favourite little stools.



I've kept my mid January Heap of Change # 1 room in pretty good shape since I finished sorting, donating, organizing, cleaning and making myself a restful room.



This week I tweaked the bookshelf a bit to make it more convenient by moving the books up and the baskets down the shelves.



I often need a little stool to stand on or put something on and this one is often in my room.


It is one I painted green many years ago, one of several  my Dad made for Church sales as well as for home and family. It is pattered after the one my Dad made as a young boy on the home ranch in the 1920's. 



Could not resist adding faux grain stripes by taping the stool Used painters tape in 2 different widths. Painted one coat of CeCe Caldwell Santa Fe Turquoise Natural Chalk + Clay Paint. It looks similar to a solid gel in the can. Paints on like a dream. I used ASCP Clear Wax as the finish.




before and after




Small changes.



Thanks for visiting today.
