Milk Paint Monday

Way back before Christmas, Mr. Wonderful surprised me with this Craig’s list find. How sweet was that? He knows I love curves and turns, and knew I would love this table and 4 chairs! The table even has a leaf! Of all the dining room tables I’ve found, none ever had their leaf(s)! Can you…

Merry Christmas! The class calendar is on line!

After Christmas Sale!

News from The Treasured Home

Ho, ho, ho! Debbie, Patti and I spent the day tagging Christmas ornaments for the shop. It felt like there were about 5000 of them! By the time this photo was taken, I was ready to call it a day! A bird in the hair is worth two in the bush! Yes, I love this…

New at The Treasured Home

You’re talking to the one-woman furniture moving service, here at The Treasured Home. (I just returned from the chiropractor!) Mr. Wonderful was no where to be found, yesterday, as I pushed, shoved and lifted! Good thing I’m such a stud at the gym! We all know customers love to see new inventory and displays. The…

New at The Treasured Home

Well, what a difference a year makes! About this time last year, I was making 4th of July pinwheels and banners. Fortunately, I saved last year’s efforts, since I’ve been painting more than paper crafting. Youse recall that I said “Adios” to Maison Blanche a while back. This was my first project, using “Locally Grown”…

New Furniture Pricing at The Treasured Home!

Is anyone buying furniture? Beautifully restored and/or painted antiques? I’d love to sell my lovely pieces because I have to make room for the pieces, waiting in the wings, aka storage and garage! The only conclusion I can make is that my prices aren’t low enough. So, I’ve lowered most furniture in the shop, by…

New at The Treasured Home

Bob and I just got home from seeing Silver Linings Playbook, and while I loved the characters, it was a wild movie! My family has nothing on this crazy group! I think I’ll just count my blessings, after all! Great news! One of my first customers, Linda, is bringing in a whole class, to paint…

New Buffet at The Shop

Hello darling!, Do you ever notice that all of the wrinkle creams advertised in the magazines, are typically modeled by 17 year old women? If I’m not mistaken, I believe I’ve aged about 13 years over the last six months! My wrinkle cream can’t keep up! Cripes! Opening up a shop is not for wimps!…

Annie Sloan Chalk Paint’s New Color! (and other paint updates)

Hello y’all!, That’s how I talk, now that I’m back from Atlanta! I really wish I had a southern accent! I think they sound so soft and pretty. I think I’ll spend this week, telling you about some of the great product info I learned, at the Haven conference. Today, let’s talk about paint! Are…

Where Did the Week Go?

This week passed so quickly, I’m not sure it really happened. The good news is that it started at the Sacramento Antique Fair on Sunday and I found a number of cool things for the shop, including this old rectangular mirror, shutters and large candle holders. I squeezed in some Craig’s list shopping.. Doesn’t everyone…
