Here There and Everywhere

January is usually a quiet month. However, this year has started off with a bang for me with clients and exciting opportunities that have me doing more than the usual amount of shopping. Here are a few things that caught my eye while out and about:

These 26x26 inch Ursula cushion covers are from Ikea. Made of ramie, they have the look and feel of raw linen. How about that cute accent stripe and tie closures? These are a steal at $13.00 each, and could easily be monogrammed to add detail.



West Elm was getting their Spring on with these pretty accessories:




Ceramic garden stools were a nice price at HomeGoods. How fun is that giant ceramic roller skate hiding in the back there?

And finally, this pretty French style table from a garage sale is my weekend project:


It's a really nice reproduction that I want to lighten up a bit.  So, I drank the kool-aid and tracked down the nearest Annie Sloan Chalk Paint stockist in my area. I want to see if this paint lives up to it's reputation of being fast, easy to use and durable.  Wish me luck!

  1. You are going to love the Annie Sloan Paint. Just remember to paint, let dry thoroughly, apply Clear Wax, then Dark Wax, after the Clear dries. If you make a mistake with the Dark wax you can use "Goo Gone" to take it off or a hair dryer to melt it so you can work it. I'm here if you need me!
